Umm short and simple answer... Starting in Summer... so it'll be hot (30-40 Celsius) and August winter here in Australia so it'll cool down but if your working in Surfers then it wont be cold as such just cooler (10-20 Celsius).

It's not going to be 30 or 40 in Sydney. More like mid to late 20s in Summer.

In the august part its going to be bloody smoking outside but remember its a desert so its also going to get colder than a couple of coldies in the freezer.

What are you guys on about?
Feb = 20-30 deg
This is the tail end of summer here. So could be sunny and hot during the day to thunderstorms in the afternoon.
Mar-May (autumn/fall) = 10 - 25 deg. Expect rain for a few days straight. To cold mornings to hot day.
June - August (winter) = 5 - 20 deg. Unpredicable.... cold wind chills, to snow in the mountains, rain rain rain.

But all of this will change slightly as you head north.
