Right on cue, the rains have arrived on the east coast to dampen Easter Holiday plans.

With the usual mass exodus from the big smoke over the next few days, if you must travel, please stay safe and stay alert on the road.Image Could Not Be Found

Good time to stay at home, I reckon.

Hahaha, it happens every year I swear. It's too much of a coincidence by now.

I think it's some sort of plot to ensure everyone has a childhood memory of a miserable, cold and wet camping experience. I know I do.

I reckon you maybe on to something there Rossco,


As well as a hike in fuel prices.
The two seem to go hand in hand at this time of year.

Sheeeesssshhh some blokes are hard to please :-)))

Sorry mate, you blokes up there definitely don't want any rain for a while.

When I got that image of NSW it had little rain images all over it, and when I clicked submit, guess what ????? they all disappeared. I rushed outside, but it was still raining :-(((.....if only it was that easy, aye.

Have a good one.

Hey Fred, Someone would just have to spit over the side of the Lawrence Ferry ATM and the river would flood.
Must be one of the wettest starts to the year in a long time. And the ants
haven't finished climbing yet either,
Yep, we've had more then our fair share.

Mark,
Keep the rain at Urbenville over Easter. We are "camping rough" at Killarney View Caravan Park & would like a nice sunny weekend(thanks very much).
Anyway, enjoy your weekend.
Is Anzac weekend camping trip still on?

Cheers.

Gave Fysh's little buzz box a good clean a couple of days ago, you wouldn't know it to look at it now.

I swear the last two times I've pulled the tent out it has rained the whole time (pulling the tent down in HEAVY rain with help from an 8yr old only is NOT fun). We are off to Swan Hill this time.

I have a theory - we bought one of those fold up clotheslines....both times we have taken it, it has bucketed down and it has been useless....if I take it this time and it rains in Swan Hill - I'll be giving it away, clearly its jinxed!

well Fred that would be one of the reasons we chose Swan Hill for our trip this time around....rain is good for the farmers and all but we don't want to be rained out! Went away for a weekend in late November - was hot and sunny all week before and all week after....rained all that weekend....haven't managed to get away with the boys since (damn kitchen reno's got in the way) so really looking forward to this trip - boys are excited (they are already packed)!

Please keep it in NSW Fred.

After 3 months hard work we have just managed to break thru and drive all of our tracks after wind storm and flash flood damage , and we hope to sit back and do nothing over easter as per Exploroz vic camping trip and we really don't need any rain to put out the campfire.

Hi All

The Cook and I are spending Easter at home, looks like some wet weather is on the way, so we have arranged for the family to visit us, and we will stay off the roads, Bbq's / Cobb Cooking Dampers ect,and a few quite Ales, might even wander over to the dam and get a few Yabbies, and down to the Tallebudgera Crk for some Mangrove Jack and some Muddies.

Yes it is raining on the South Coast.

My waterproof jacket and boots are both wet through after I got caught in heavy rain on my bushwalk this morning.

Glorious, cool day - I love it. As will the local camping place, cafes and shops who are open over Easter - they are extra busy if the weather isnt so good for the beach!

Heather
