Hi all, I'm a Brit about to make the big move to Sydney. Here I was, enjoying a semi-retired life in the wilds of Wiltshire when I got a call - 'come and help us in Sydney, we'll take care of the visa etc'. It took very little time to decide, I fancied an adventure and so I arrive on the 30th Sept. 2 weeks in jail then free to roam (I hope!)

I've been selling off a bit of kit here, but plan to bring my hammock/tarp setup, is that appropriate for bushcrafting in the Sydney NSW area?

Looking forward to meeting some new bushcraft mates!

Hope it’s all smooth sailing. 2 weeks will give you plenty of time to research places to go.

Big change for you, you will be coming into our warm then very hot weather. ☀️🥵😁

What region of Sydney? we still have Cov lock down here so you will be a bit restricted to your LGA (Local Government Authority) for a short while more.

hammock/tarp setup for Sydney region is fine, just need the trees and again coming into our nice weather, does get cool at night, you have an under quilt i presume.

Gday and welcome to the forum.
I am not far south of Sydney, Shellharbour LGA

cheers Mozz

Thanks for the welcome!

I'll be in Surry Hills for a few weeks, then will pick a different suburb to try, until my stuff arrives on the boat.

Yep, have an underquilt - I learned the hard way about needing it!

Any local groups? Or does everyone do their own thing?

A lot of us kinda do our own thang, but there are a few local Sydney groups,

not much has been happening, cold winter and this pestering lockdowns.

with the warmer weather and easing of restrictions, should be some more activity,

I am busting to get back out Kayaking and string up my hammock 😁
