I am leaving for Australia in 11 days, for a 5 week holiday travelling up the East Coast from Sydney to Cairns, obviously the floods dont sound too promising and I keep checking the weather forecast all along the coast which tends to be 'rain', is anyone out there at the moment and able to say whether there is any good weather?! (sunshine and warmth would be lovely!). Anyone else out there for the same time as me and similar timescale, a buddy would be lovely!

Hey Claire,

The floods are terrible up north (I'm near Sydney), and weather is not much of an improvement here too, with sun then rain... We had a couple 28 degree days over the new year period, but the following week has been raining... very unpredictable and basically uncharacteristic summer weather! Hopefully the weather sorts it's self out soon in time for your journey!

Thanks Nick.
Im sat here trying to desperately work out what to pack with the News on telling me that most of Queensland is flooded! Anyone with help about what I should pack would be greatly appreciated- are T's and shorts still ok??! Thanks.
