LA gets 284 sunny days a year (which is a lot!). By comparison, Sydney gets 236,but Perth gets 265.
Here is a site listing Australian cities: https://www.currentresults.com/Weather/Australia/Cities/suns...
Plenty of places hotter than LA if it is the heat you are interested in. Adelaide had a heatwave a few years ago where it didn't drop below 35C for 10 nights straight, and had days over 46C.
Why would somebody ever want that?
(I was suffering from 31C at lunch today)
Victoria? Only in Summer where temperatures occasionally exceed 100 Fahrenheit, winters are cold.
Tasmania? No, never.
I wasn't, I meant what I wrote, and nothing more specific than that.
Nonetheless, even comparing those two cities, I'm not sure "wrong" is an appropriate conclusion. It really depends on what metrics you're using.
LA certainly has more hours of sunlight, but it's not nearly as warm. However, hours of sunlight probably isn't what people mean when they say "sunnier", or else the Arctic would be a popular tourist destinations for "sun seekers" during its Summer.
