Being in the southern hemisphere makes this time of year winter for us Aussies.
Most of you in the northern hemisphere probably experience extreme cold and snow where you live. Not here in Brisbane, we might get down to 4 or 5 degrees C over night and then go up to 22 degrees C during the day, so we have very mild weather compared what you would go through. Even though it is quite mild, us Brisbanites still believe it is freezing cold and we rug up for it and complain about how long it is going to be cold. (we do the same when it is hot :)).
So if you ever want to come and visit us in "low season" and save a little money on accomodation and tours Brisbane's winter is probably the best time to come.
Bushwalking in winter is the best time to avoid our little nasties like snakes (as they hibernate)and leeches because it is quite dry and they like it better in summer when it rains. Winter is really the best time of year for hiking and bushwalking because you don't get too hot and can enjoy your walk in comfort.
