Adelaide brags a Mediterranean climate, perfect for enjoying the
great Australian outdoors. A warm tempertyre with long hot summers,
short mild winters and low rainfall.
The average temperature ranges from 15°C (58°F) in July,
to 29°C (84°F) in January. One of the hottest places in
the area in summer is Coober Pedy, 863 kilometres (536 miles) northwest
of Adelaide, reaching temperatures of up to 45°C (113°F).
Light weight cottons and linens are advised for the summer, warmer
medium weights in winter. Waterproofing is sensible throughout most
of the year, particularly in winter.
