Zealand were used. Australian high-quality station data were obtained from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology ( http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/change/datasets/datasets.shtml ). These represent the highest quality data available and are free from artificial discontinuities and trends. Further information on these precipitation and temperature data and a full list of stations are in Lavery et al. (1997) and Trewin (2001) , respectively. Data for New Zealand were provided by the National Institute of

anthropogenic forcings are also reasonably well constrained (e.g., Schmidt et al. 2012 ). With knowledge of changes in the global climate and the potential external drivers, this period is well suited to a combined data–modeling approach to understanding the response of the climate system to external forcings (e.g., Fernández-Donado et al. 2013 ). However, despite the quantity and quality of the available data, our understanding of the events of the past 1500 years and their origins remains limited. The

). However, prior work did not result in a consolidated and quality-controlled database of TCs in the region. SPEArTC integrates all previous efforts to identify TC tracks by 1) tying the various TC sources together; 2) digitizing new track information along with post-1969 satellite data, allowing for further statistical and spatial analysis; and 3) making the data more easily available in convenient formats and at a centralized, secure location in line with the work of the International Best Tracks for

a large degree of overlap with the primary site. It is interesting to note, that while 11 locations are used in this study only one site (Yan Yean, BoM station number 086131) is used by Gergis et al. (2012) to validate their paleo-reconstruction. The monthly rainfall data for the individual sites used in the network reconstruction are taken from the Australian Data Archive for Meteorology (ADAM), managed by the BoM. As such, they have been subjected to some degree of quality control
