    Pretty much.
    Walking along the beach in shorts and a t-shirt before sunrise and seeing the sun come up over the Keppell islands seems slightly better than the shorn dumb sheep option.
    Very funny watching the local girls being unable to cope with fifteen degrees and being unable to go out without jumpers and scarves.
    Apart from that we are pretty much experiencing the same temperatures : the maximum there is about the same as the minimum here.
    I should be back in time for Morgan.

    Ain’t that the truth!

    Been north in winter in the past, and always picked as “not from round here”, when you enjoy the local weather in a t-shirt...... ;)

    Had a great week away for the Spectacular and stayed at the Albatross at Nambucca, was not really a campsite but a camp spot but was an awesome place to stay because of the VW feel and we loved hearing the Kombi doors opening and closing along with the VW rumble as they come and go, it had been ten years since my last visit which was way too long, great to be back, cheers

    usually need to book in advance for Greenpatch, Booderee National Park, Jervis Bay...even then you might find some foreign tourists setting up a tent in your site :)

    We're on the old block. Clean with good hot showers. Will check out the newer ones later. Bloke at the pub tonight said he locked his car doors and drove out when he looked at the other park out on the highway.
    Pt Pirie's radio advert lately is "Change change change, see how we've changed!" Somehow I think they've still got a bit more to go.

    I can't talk, we live in Peterborough which is officially one of the lowest socioeconomic communities in SA. It's the only way I can pretend to be in a higher social bracket!;)

    Checked out the rest of the park and other amenities. Pretty good. Clean and tidy. Much of the look of the park is a lack of water. 4 inches of rain would improve the area. But we're not drought declared.
