If the current rate continues, by 2100 the edge of the new dry subtropical zone would extend from roughly Sydney to Perth. As these dry subtropical zones shift, droughts will worsen and overall less rain will fall in most warm temperate regions.
Poleward shifts in the average tracks of tropical and extratropical cyclones are already happening. This is likely to continue as the tropics expand further.
As extratropical cyclones move, they shift rain away from temperate regions that historically rely upon winter rainfalls for their agriculture and water security.
The area around the house gets visited each day by roos, potaroos, wallabies, all manner of native birds and as you imagine, reptiles. The goannas are a fair size and during the hotter days raid the coops. Pythons live in the roof and around the block and also get active taking the small chicks and goslings but thats nature. It's the poisoness snakes that can be a worry and I've had blacks and browns around infrequently. A black took my dogs life a little while back and not long before I got here a python from in the roof got hold of one of their cats.
backyard makes me envious for that lifestyle and the access to raw nature.
