Hot! We had days of 44C degrees, with crazy low humidity. To be honest, cycling in Malaysia and Thailand with 36C and 90% humidity was much worse! In Australia, as long as you stay hydrated, wear sunblock and a hat you are fine.

Low humidity gives you a chance to cool yourself down by pouring water over your head. It evaporates so quickly, that you feel cool immediately, for about 10 minutes.

In Australia we had to get up before sunrise and cycled until 11am. We then had a midday rest (usually a nice lunch followed by a nap) and could continue cycling after 4pm.

Staying on official camping sites was out of the question – extremely expensive and noisy. We always prefer to camp wild. With millions of stars over our heads we felt reconnected.
