Art & Craft
Midway up the east coast of Australia, the region surrounding Brisbane (capital city of Queensland, 27.5oS, 153oE) offers city, coastal and rural life.
This region, indeed all Queensland, operates on Eastern Standard Time which is 10 hours ahead of GMT. Summertime or Daylight Saving is not observed.
Just 700-800 kilometres south of the Tropic of Capricorn, the region has a hot, humid climate which dictates the lifestyles of its residents. While the summer maximum average temperate is only 30oC, the summer months have some extremely hot days relieved by an afternoon sea breeze. People with fair skins need to be very wary in midday sunshine which can burn in a few minutes. Hats, cool clothing that protects from the sun, sunscreen and common sense are essentials to enjoying Queensland summers. The winter is mild and very pleasant. Most winter days are sunny with average temperatures of around 15oC.
