    My dh is in defence and we hope to live in canberra at some stage. We lived in melb for a year and loved the true 4 seasons, particularly a genuine Spring and Autumn.

    Perth can be colder because the houses aren't built to take winter and they don't know how to efficiently heat anything over here. Melbourne can be freezing but the houses and buildings are warm. I'm often colder in the morning in my house in Perth because it doesn't beat properly. We're putting in under floor heating in our new house and I cannot wait.

    The winter before we moved from Melbourne five years ago was bitter and cold.

    But Canberra wins hands down. Those winds from the snow caps. Brrrr.

    I just miss seeing the seasons change.

    see I reckon the houses in Perth are better! all the houses here are just built with flimsy stud walls! I like the brick interior walls.

    I always assumed Perth winters felt colder as the summers were so hot so the variation in temps was more noticeable.

    I love Perth heat and summers but an used to Melb weather now. Perth is awesome for summer holidays visits though. hands down best beaches in the country!!!

    Canberra def has 4 distinct seasons. The autumn leaves are so beautiful and the spring can be gorgeous with all the flowers.

    I agree on the beaches. I hate the houses here though. Double brick with rendering. Loathe them.

    I've been to Melbourne several times...only once was it actually 'you don't need to freeze your tits off' weather.
    I don't cope with the cold at all. I'd happily move to the tropics and never have Winter. I freeze ALL winter every year...Melbourne has like a 9 month Winter (compared to weather where I live) I barely cope with a three month Winter.
    Melbourne weather is the sole readon I will never move there!

    Same. I can't cope with Melbourne weather and don't find Perth winters anywhere near as cold.
    I'm looking forward to our trip to the cooler climate in a few weeks where I can jeans, jumper and boots but I know it's short lived so enjoy it. We live in the tropics and don't have winter and love it.

    Not only that, everyone in WA freaks out at the slightest bit of cold weather and don't leave the house! I found winter in WA so depressing as everyone just hibernates. Can't take the boat out? Oh no, what to do? Ummm, build cafes with open fireplaces or buy a jacket?
