Brisbane winter is seriously underrated. The climate we enjoy mid-year (for about two weeks) is comparable to an English summer, so we really should be more grateful.

So rug up, kick back, and crack open some wine. Here are 13 things that every Brisbanite can relate to:

1. Official Brisbane winter uniform = jeans, jumper, thongs
