Getting Hot! Hot! Hot!

Getting Down Under Australia

Getting Hot! Hot! Hot! - hottest temperature in perth - Getting Down Under aussie style, C . By, Champion Lakes, crazy kind, heat, hottest day, marble bar, Perth, Time, UK, YesterdayPhew! What a scorcher.

Yesterday saw the hottest day in Perth for nearly two years with the mercury hitting 42.9C . By 5am, the temperature at Champion Lakes near Armadale were already 30.4C – warmer than in Marble Bar, which is Australia’s hottest town and only 20.6C at that time.
At time of typing the temperatures are just shy of 41C so it looks like it’s going to be another hot one today

The hottest ever recorded temperature in Perth was 46.2 °C (115 °F) on 23 February 1991 and I can imagine, back then it must have been pretty unbearable.

In a slightly crazy kind of way, even though it’s nearly three years to the day since I burnt my bum due to this heat, I still really enjoy it. Sure, my view on the subject may be a little different if we didn’t benefit from the technical luxury of air conditioning but still, I enjoy the heat.

I was sat around the pool yesterday afternoon and the temperature was just a notch over 40C at around 5pm. I had my factor 30 sun block on, a large Aussie style hat (minus the corks) and an icy cold beer. In my hand I held a copy the ‘International Express’ bearing the headline “Battling Brittons Beat the Big Freeze”.

I certainly know where I’d rather be and for those looking to make the move down under from the UK who are struggling with the ongoing delays, please be rest assured that the wait really is worth it!

    Dear Mark My name is pat conlon, i started reading your blogs about your adventure down under and it made me reminest about our experience of down under. we first went to oz in 1996 to melbourne but lasted 6 weeks because of a number of reasons one being it was just a big city with changeable weather ( it was July ). WE came back to Newry ( Ireland ) and settled back to our old routine and although we missed Australia because it was our dream to leave ireland behind and live the dream ( even though we… Read more »
