    climate change is both a hazard and a chance.

    I have found that the plant hardiness zones are debatable in Australia, for example, the latitude of my town is 32.6650° south of the equator & on the east coast,one source says that any zone from Sydney to Brisbane is within zone 10 whereas any town north of Mackay in Queensland is in zone 11a,further north in the tropics such as Cairns, Townsville & Darwin ,they are within zone 11b.

    Another source told me the major city near where I live (Newcastle) is within zone 11a which means that coastal city doesn’t have a temperature below 4°C.

    We live 40 kilometres inland from there but when I was working there the temperature got down to 1°C during the day,I ended up wearing my tracksuit underneath my work uniform, it was that cold.

    I got up at 6AM last Sunday morning & our thermometer read a temperature of 2.3°C outdoors,that is saying were in zone 10b,our overnight forecast is meant to have a low of 0°C so I’ll check that too.

    Our area is meant to have a humid subtropical climate (0°C minimum),I am raising tropical plants in pots which are surviving the cold, one of my 4 papaya trees which are about 30cm tall died because a slug or snail had a good munch on the trunk but the other 3 survived.

    1 of my 4 jackfruit seedlings died overnight in June over an 11°C minimum night temperature, it was a weaker seedling I think.

    My mango trees which are between 30-50 cms in height have survived over the winter but all of the trees have went into dormancy meaning that they have stopped growing while the weather has been cold.

    The papaya trees should grow in our climate zone but not many people grow them in my area, my grandfather on my dads side used to live in the same zone albeit 28.8° below the equator.

    He used to grow papaya until he got an allergic reaction to latex in 2001,he died last August.

    The climate zone there is about the same but more tropical plants get grown there,their annual rainfall is higher than ours & they are closer to the coast.

    It does get cold at Lismore which is near there but they are as far inland as we are,an old person got evicted from his home then thrown out on the street, he became homeless then died of hypothermia from sleeping outside during this winter.
