Australia has a varied climate, leading to different locations around the country having different heating and cooling requirements. In the energy efficiency provisions of the NCC, these varying requirements are addressed through the use of a climate zone map.
The climate zone map consists of eight climate zones and was created using Bureau of Meteorology climatic data with two supplementary zones added to accommodate an additional temperate zone and alpine area. The climate zone boundaries are also aligned with local government areas and are therefore subject to change from time to time.
The NCC climate zone maps have been made available below, providing enlarged PDF versions of the Australia wide map and each of the individual State and Territory maps.
