Australia Weather


Australia is home to a variety of climatic regions. While it is true the majority of the country is hot-desert or semi-arid grassland, there are also other subtropical regions in the Southeast and East of the country. The northern coast of Australia generally has a tropical climate, except for a small region in the extreme North of Queensland wich falls within the Equitorial climate zone. A temperate climate can be found in Tasmania, Victoria, most of the coastal areas of New South Wales and South Australia, small parts of Queensland, and in the Australian Capital Territory.

Product Description:
Air hostesses took to the skies in the 1930s, proud and excited to have the most glamorous job in the world. This was a job like no other-filled with adventure, shiny new technology, and work that was thrilling, demanding and exhausting. Young women flocked in droves to be measured, weighed, and squeezed into snappy uniforms. Smile, Particularly in Bad Weather tells the story of the development of this pioneering profession. It describes the shift from the 1930s, when the girl-next-door took to the air with a great degree of bravado, through to the 1960s and the 'coffee, tea or me?' stereotype, where airlines sexualised the air hostess as a point of marketing difference. The book then covers the crucial period where air hostesses fought back, no longer wanting to be stereotyped nor discriminated against in terms of fair working conditions. The job of air stewardess shaped working women to become something more, it tested their independence, it encouraged self-enhancement and sophistication, and it took them to places they hadn't dreamt about.
