In Melbourne, the summers are warm, the winters are cold and windy, and it is partly cloudy year round. At the time of the conference Melbourne is generally warm, but can also have very hot days.

Sydney is humid subtropical, shifting from mild and cool in winter to warm and hot in the summer, with no extreme seasonal differences as the weather is moderated by proximity to the ocean, although more contrasting temperatures are recorded in the inland western suburbs.
