anyone up north able to comment on their ponds water temps throughout the year? im hoping to move up there in the next few years and just daydreaming about tropical ponds...

Yes, 

I'm sure the giant pink gouramis would love a tropical (rather than sub-tropical) setting.

Based on the Koppen Climate picture - anywhere north of Airlie Beach would be wonderful (I think); barring Tropical Cyclones - Debbie, Edward, Florence, George, Harriet. etc. etc.....

Cheers,

(freezing in Brissie's Winter if the temp goes below 20degC)

Have a couple if depth levels if making it yourself, up to 60cm for diff temps.

Plant around it, the sun can heat it up by hitting the ground close to it, more then you might think. 

Location matters to, there's ways to cool it if you have to as well, with out a chiller.
