Data confidence level:
This FACT indicates the degree of difference in temperature between the highest and lowest average temperature of each Australian capital city. A lower range value indicates that there is less variation in temperature throughout the year, while a larger value indicates a greater variation in temperature between seasons. The city with the lowest average range is Hobart, with 8.4 degrees Celsius. The city with the highest average range in temperature is Canberra, with 13°. The smaller variation between summer and winter temperatures - compared to the greater temperature variations of North America or Northern Europe - consolidates Australia as an agreeable holiday destination all year round. The data for this fact was collected from 1971-2000.
