Whatever you do, don't come to Australia in our summer! It's literal hell on earth. I wouldn't even consider late Spring or early Autumn, for the same reason. Besides, our winters are probably equivalent to your Fall, so July/August is probably the ideal time for your visit. You'll have lovely cool evenings and mild days, everywhere except our mountainous, inland, and alpine regions. You'll get your 10c at night and high teens during the day in most of the southern coastal regions. If you want proper cold and snow you'll find it .. but you'll also be able to sun yourself on tropical beaches.
An Australian winter has something for everyone. An Australian summer has nothing for anyone .. unless you're quite demented and/or come from Northern Russia, and find the idea of 45c an exciting novelty.
LOL .. same. We leave ours open down to about 5c, but draw the line at zero. We don't heat the house at night, so we get the full experience
We haven't turned on our heater, yet, and we've been in this house for four winters. The lowest ever was waking up and the house was at 41 degrees, so your 5. We closed the windows and put on our sweat pants, which will last forever because we use them so little. (My favorite pair are 22 years old, now, and very little wear-n-tear.)
I dread having to turn it on one day, and we will. That burnt smell is awful.
Whatever needs blaming.
Good for you! We'd like to try going to no heating at some point, it's just a matter of practice. Friends living in colder climates don't light their fires until the house gets close to zero, finding 5c a perfectly reasonable temperate for indoors. They either keep very busy, or go to bed. Not much lounging around on sofas!

Expert calls for Australia to appoint foreign interference commissioner as China-Beijing tensions rise
People in Australia targeted by foreign powers often do not report it to police
An expert says a foreign interference commissioner would create more transparency about the issue
Alleged political interference has been a key part of China's ongoing spat with Australia
ABC news this morning.
This is a good idea I think. There have been muttering a about influencing and interfering by China for ages.
Chinese students have talked about intimidation agents of China.
There’s a large article by the Financial Times which concerned fighting between Mainland China and Pro Taiwan protestors at a uni in QLD.
There have been major instances of hacking and data theft from Unis.
It gets awkward when China has poured research money into Unis and wants a return in the the form of suppression of dissidents and restriction of criticism of China.
