Sorry for the late reply been busy
Water temps in Perth are:
Summer (Nov - Mar) usually between 22 - 24 degrees Celsius - I usually dive in either a one piece 3mm wetsuit or a 5mm long johns with a long sleeve shark skin top and I am more than comfortable.
Winter (Jun - Sep) water temp is around the 14 - 16 degree Celsius mark - I have to wear a two piece 5mm wetsuit and after 50 min or so I am really feeling the cold.
The months in between the water is either warming or cooling down.
I would like to get a decent drysuit but they cost so much here in Australia that it is way down on my to get list (but maybe one day ) plus due to my 'athletic build' I have to get everything custom made
