This FACT indicates the average sea temperatures during one year in Australian cities. This indicator is an important one for many Australians and tourists, given the country's thousands of kilometres of coastline and beach culture. The city with the highest average sea temperature throughout the year is Darwin with 29.08; unsurprising given its tropical climate. The city with the lowest is Hobart with 14.39 degrees. Data for Canberra is not applicable, given it is situated over 100 kilometres inland.
This FACT indicates the proportion per 100,000 persons of cargo in tonnes that is loaded (including exports) in each Australian city. This number is represented in thousands. The city with the highest number is the Darwin with 3,508,050 tonnes per 100,000 people. The city with the lowest was Sydney with 126,450 tonnes per 100,000 people. In this instance, Canberra has been omitted since it has no sea ports.
How much does it cost to rent a house in Australia? Unsurprisingly, this number varies dramatically depending on size and suburb, and there is also great disparity between cities. This FACT indicates the median rental rate for a house in each Australian capital city. The median has been utilised as it gives a more accurate reflection of the overall data set. The median value is the middle price in a series of sales, where half of the sales are of lower value and half are of higher value. Here, all house types and sizes have been considered. The data represents the statistics for February 2018. In Australia, rent and mortgage repayments are generally calculated in weekly instalments, and so the data here represents weekly repayments.
The city with the highest rental prices is Sydney with an average of $610 per week. Adelaide and Perth has the lowest at $360 per week.
This FACT indicates the percentage of households that own three or more smartphones in each Australian state according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

Figures are expressed as millions of dollars.
