Climate Kelpie has done a lot of the work for you, by rounding up and connecting Australian agriculture to "tools and information about climate to help you make decisions about your farm business".

As a "one stop shop" for climate risk management information and tools, the website has been designed specifically for farmers and farm advisors.

On the website, you can find information and decision-support tools on adapting to a more variable climate, as well as regional weather drivers for wherever you live in Australia. Also, the website provides case studies from over forty farmers across the country who have been recognised as Managing Climate Variability Climate Champions.  

Climate Kelpie also brings together and explains a number of global climate models.
