Climate Data Online (CDO) provides access to a range of statistics, recent weather observations and climate data from the Australian Data Archive for Meteorology (ADAM pdf, 350kB), a database which holds weather observations dating back to the mid 1800s for some sites. We are progressively increasing the range of data available from CDO, in a variety of data formats including tables, data files (csv), PDF, graphs and maps. In addition, CDO provides the capability to compare and review the data.
Choosing the Map or Text
You can use either the 'Select using Map' or the 'Select using Text' tool to select your data. While many of the controls are the same, each tool offers different practical advantages.
There are a number of pages on this web site where you can access free climate data and information. See: Other available data
If you cannot obtain the information you are after, then you may contact us to request additional data. There may be a charge associated with this service. Data are available for individual stations, while gridded data and pre-packaged climate data products are also available.
!If you would like to obtain additional data from us we encourage you to, where possible, use the Weather Station Directory to provide us with the appropriate Bureau station numbers. This will reduce the time required to process your request, and therefore the cost.
