A travel writer has reminded people going on travelling holidays in Australia that they should pack plenty of clothes that can be layered up, since the country is large and temperatures will vary in different regions.

A travel writer has reminded people going on travelling holidays in Australia that they should pack plenty of clothes that can be layered up, since the country is large and temperatures will vary in different regions.

Linda Reverchon, writing for the Vancouver Sun, said that Melbourne was very cold when she and her husband visited in October, while Canberre was cool and windy.

However, Brisbane was warm and dry, as was Sydney, she reported.

Despite the variations in temperature, Ms Reverchon said she thoroughly enjoyed her Australian adventure and that she could happily live in Brisbane, which she likened to paradise.

Commenting on her return home, she said: “Our luggage was jammed with souvenirs and gifts and our heads were full of the wonders we had seen.”

Tourism Australia managing director Geoff Buckley recently told the Telegraph that the new film Australia will “put the country in the spotlight” around the world.
