Yep. We've been here before.
But this is Oz mate.
I've been in Canada and the USA and UK at the start of autumn so I know how and why they do it that way.

vic it has been amazing this year how closely the seasons have correlated with the official dates. Literally 1st march and we went from a hot dry flat summer to a wet, surf filled autumn.
June 1 and winter started on cue with a cold southerly from a tasman low.

So where shall we be when el Nino kicks in? Big chance for now. We had summer right through March, a very wet April, dryish May and now it's cold. Long term, the solstice and equinox have been the definers - at least down here. I'll continue that way for now. Trev's in lala tardland

The solstice and equinox happen the world over, on the same days, even in Queensland. Swvic knows wats up.

So, in the Northern Hemisphere, you reckon summer starts on Midsummer's Day.

Summer begins at the summer solstice. Ends at the fall equinox , which is the beginning of fall.
It's not rocket science, but it is science.
Or maybe not. I suppose seasons are a human construct and can begin and end whenever people agree.

The locals who have lived here in the SW reckon the seasons are:

Birak (Dec-Jan): Dry and hot. Also known as Season of the Young.
Bunuru (Feb-Mar): Hottest part of the year. Also known as Season of Adolescence.
Djeran (Apr-May): Cooler weather begins. Also known as Season of Adulthood.
Makuru (Jun-Jul): Coldest and wettest time of the year; more frequent gales and storms. Also known as Fertility Season.
Djilba (Aug-Sept): Mixture of wet days with increasing number of clear, cold nights and pleasant warmer days. Also known as Season of Conception.
Kambarang (Oct-Nov): Longer dry periods. Also known as Season of Birth.

So you reckon summer starts on June 1st and lasts 6 weeks?

Meteorological and astronomical seasons aren't the same.

I was just noting that astronomical seasons are just one way of looking at it, as are meteorological seasons, as are other seasonal systems.
I do think the average person thinks 'winter' roughly defines the coldest part of the year and I would think the winter solstice would be leaving it a bit late as a start date in most regions, but maybe 'winter' has another meaning for most people.
