When you go north of around Ballina/Murwillimbah the humidity starts.  No use winding the windows up in the car during rain storms as your soaked with sweat in 2 minutes flat.
 
 You can tell how north you are by timing how fast your beer turns into sweat.L/Hr

Humidity? We've learned to breath under water

Several years ago my wife and I were in SEQLD, mainly around the Sunny Coast which is where we'd like to move to.
Talking with locals they kept telling us we'd struggle to cope with the humidity.
Wifey was talking with a lady in a shop who had lived in Darwin and she mentioned that everyone kept telling us about the humidity and was it really that bad. The lady looked at Deb and said "Oh love it gets a bit warm sometimes"
I must mention here that we've both lived in Darwin for about 30 years

Well I don't live in Darwin or up North. I live on the South Coast of NSW and the humidity doesn't normally stick around for this long and the fact I don't live in a A/C house or drive a car with A/C and my work place doesn't have A/C so I suppose its just not my cuppa tea lol jimson

It's the old story, it's what you're used to.
I came from the end of a Wellington, NZ summer to six months of winter in Brisbane then to the middle of the build up on Darwin.
I could not believe it could be so hot and humid. Day or night it didn't matter. 30 years later it's just normal

Now when I head south or east I wonder how I ever lived in cooler temperatures.
It takes me a while to get used to riding and NOT sweating but jeeez it's nice
