Winter in Australia officially started on Monday, June 1st. So which place in each state and territory had the coldest start to the season in 2020?

The lowest temperature in Australia on Monday morning, prior to 9am local time, was -1.8 degrees at Mount Buller in Victoria. This was closely followed by -1.4 degrees at Ouse in Tasmania, while Butler's Gorge (TAS) rounded out the nation's top three coldest places with -1.3 degrees.

All states and territories had at least one location drop below 5.2 degrees on Monday morning, with the NT claiming the title of highest low temperature on the first morning of winter. This went to Yulara Airport near Uluru, with a minimum of 5.1 degrees.

Official daily minimum temperatures for Monday June 1st are taken as the lowest temperature measured during the 24 hours prior to 9am in each state and territory. This means that temperatures measured after 9am on Monday will be attributed to Tuesday morning's daily minimum temperature.
