For years for us this was Barrington Tops - and almost all of them rain and lots of rain.
So this year, after lots of procrastinating I decided to stay home & weed the garden. As I hear the rain that started a couple of hours ago get heavier and heavier, I'm OK with my decision to stay at home this weekend. Although I may set up the tent in the backyard tomorrow...

Anyone else have a tradition of less than ideal holiday trips?

Also, thinking of going to Barrington Tops in April school holidays with kids. Where do you camp? Will it be too cold at that time?

Hi Nicole,

the nights could be pretty cold (have often had heavy frost) but the days could be nice (if there is no rain). There are lots of camp sites. I've mostly stayed at PolBlue - a large open site, nice big grassy flat / frost hollow, a nice short walk for small kids around the flat, or Junction Pools - smaller, fewer facilities and good long walks from there.

Check the National Parks site - they have details of the camp sites.

We have done the same as you Vicki and stayed at home one of the reasons being it usually rains at Easter. Listening to the rain last night thought it was a good decision, but look at it today!!! We did go to Dubbo last year and it didn't rain there!! So maybe west is the go!

Up here on the north coast (NSW) we have had 2 fine Easters out of the past 16...I watch the carloads arrive with their tents and admire their determination!
But on the central reaches of the Murray River, we had 1 wet Easter in 10 (and boy did it catch out all the people who did their traditional camping along the river...the farmers on their tractors made a motza towing all the caravans out!!)
Lesson: east coast...nup. You have to be a real stickler for tradition and sucker for punishment. (Personally, I stay home and listen to the rain on the roof!)
Inland...usually good.
