Hi guys,

I have been planning a trip around OZ for a while now which has taken far longer to get going than i thought.
I will be leaving in a week or two and am heading south from sydney and slowly making my way down along the coast hopefully getting into WA around june/july.
Thing is it has taken longer than i thought and summer will be gone soon. I will be in lower nsw and south oz from now till june, i have never been in these parts before and am wondering how cold it will be in and out of the water?
I surf, snorkel and fish alot and am wondering if i have left my run too late

6 to 8 weeks of the swimming season left in Vic. After Easter the weather generally turns a bit cold & wet so would want a good wet suit.

Hi Oldsalty
When you are travelling over to the West at that time of the year, make sure that you drop into the Head of The Bight, to see the whales. Well worth the time and the small fee to see them.
Also a good place to fish over that way is Point Sinclair. Follow the signs from Penong to Cactus Beach and keep heading south. The locals at Penong say that this is their top spot to fish. When we were there one fellow caught an 18" whiting within 1 minute of throwing in his line off of the jetty. He said that if he does not get a bite within 5 minutes, he goes home.

Southern WA could be rather cold and wet by June/July. We've done a couple of trips across the Nullabor in March/April and explored the southern parts until it got too wintery for us, which was May, both times. Then we headed north.

Hi Oldsalty

I don't know your time frame, or where you have bee n before, but you can't get better than June in the Kimberley. Would it be better to do a 'figure of eight' through Australia, thus getting into the centre and north during the winter, and the southern areas during summer?
