    Is Canyoning in the Blue Mountains cold at this time of year?

    I can vouch for a cool 5 degrees here today. Wait for Spring, its hard to get the chill out of your bones at this time, let alone being wet. about 8 years ago

    Where are the best camping spots around Sydney?

    There are heaps of great options! Depends on what type of camping you are into but a good place to start is the National Parks website which lists all camping ground within National Parks in NSW; http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/NationalParks/SearchCampgrounds.aspx My favourite would have to be Caves Beach down on the Bodoree National Park, Jervis Bay, about 3 hrs south of Sydney - flanked by two great beaches, and its relatively small so cant get too crowded. You can drive in and then there's about a 200m walk into the site. Greenpatch is also a good option - you can take your car right in. http://www.environment.gov.au/parks/booderee/visitor-activities/camping.html If you want to heard west Turon Gates out towards Mudgee is a beautiful remote spot on the river; http://www.turongates.com/camp.html Ive also herd some good things about Glenworth Valley - just up on the Hawkesbury, barely an hour form Sydney; http://www.glenworth.com.au/accomodation-and-camping over 8 years ago
