I am coming from New York and spending July in Australia :P :D :lol: . I want to climb at Arapiles but I am getting conflicting information. Some people tell me that it is going to be too rainy and that I should go to Townsville or somewhere else tropical :( . While other people tell me that it won't be a problem in Arapiles :D . Could someone give me the straight dirt :?: . Thank you.

I've climbed at Arapiles in April, May, September and October, but not during July. From friends that have lived there tell me that its fine for climbing during the winter if you are selective about aspect etc and don't mind the odd down day. The pub in Horsham is always open! Remember that in Australia the winter is the rainy season. Anyhow, rather than guess why don't you check out the aussie site below and post a question in the forum. Its a great resource for anyone visiting the land of oz.

There would be a VERY good chance of getting rain at Arapiles in July. It will be the coldest month (also August), and will get down to almost 35F at night sometimes and no warmer than 50F in the daytime if you're lucky.... yes, it is the rainy season in SOUTHERN Australia in the winter but in Northern Australia, like Queensland, it is the dry season.... Tropical is good advice.... Even the Blue Mountains can get VERY cold in July and has known to snow on occasion each year....
I'd say if you REALLY are coming to Australia in July and have no other time, then go to Queensland.... almost all days are sunny and 65-75F. If you can hold off to come until September, then you will find it more pleasant at Arapiles....
