Hi Penny, and Happy New year to you. Darwin will be different - but I'm imagining beautiful growth and lots of luxuriant greenery - and colourful vines all year round. You'll have a great time.
All the very best, and let us all know how you get on! Even a small change of garden site takes a bit of time and relearning. My very first garden was pretty much frost free, and when I first moved here I had no idea that daisies etc. would die in the winter. Oops.
Post us some of your garden pictures, if you like.
Hmm... I can often be found asleep in a chair around 5pm...
