We really had spring sprung on us this year. In one day we travelled from Canberra, ACT to Whyrallah, near Lismore, NSW – and then the next we were in sunny QLD, back to Rainbow Beach. After last week in Perisher when it was snowing, we arrived back to sunny beach weather. What a difference in climate! We spoke to a few skiing campers, who said they were cosy in their van and caravan parks close to the mountain. One couple had been camped out all winter!
