Thailand ... seemingly worlds apart.

While we are, relatively for Thailand, freezing our asses off, spare a thought for the inhabitants of Birdsville, Queensland, Australia ... seemingly worlds apart where ...

... where the Australian Bureau Of Meteorology (BOM) recorded a top temperature of 47.1 degrees Celsius at 4:12pm, the afternoon temperature has not dipped below 41C since Australia Day.

Much of Queensland and New South Wales is sweltering through the tail end of a horrific heatwave.

"People are out and about doing normal activities — they're tough out here," said the manager of the Birdsville Hotel, Ben Fullagar.


Obviously a Swedish tourist chasing that Bronzed Aussie Tan ...

"People in town know what to do, people know how to keep cool and not to move around too much," he said.
"Being a small town, everyone keeps an eye on each other."


Just where is Birdsville?



The heat map is here ... amazing the temperatures being recorded ...




The small town is surrounded by hundreds of kilometres of dirt.
During summer, the nearby Simpson Desert Park is closed to tourists, as if a car were to break down days could pass before another person comes along to help.

Is it just Birdsville ... nope




Thailand's cool snap is better by the day to this Aussie.

There's a video done by the Queensland police of a cop placing a frying pan on the bonnet of his car and frying an egg in it..... It sizzled away and was cooked in under 2 minutes.

This is part of the problem in the U.K.they think Aus is hot all year around and that it never snows in Australia.

^Looks like i picked the right time to come to Thailand from Queensland.
Cant remember the last time I was shoveling snow from my front door in Qld, Was and can't remember doing it from St Kilda in Melbourne either. Only ever seen it in mountains in the winter in Victoria.

Australia's known to get hot, especially late summer extending into early autumn..
Off and on drought conditions for the last couple of decades.

What's the news revelation?
