If you ever travel to Sydney, Bubba, you've probably driven through the area. AKA New England Tablelands. Glenn Innes, Guyra, Armidale etc.

It's 500m higher than your Toowoomba, gorgeous unforgettable scenery and wonderful mild summers.

Some would say ghastly winters, down to minus 15 degrees, but thats OK too, if you're curled up in front of an open fire with a book in one hand and a coffee in the other! 8)

Are yes, know it well. We once rode from Bathurst in the pouring rain in winter and when we reached Guyra I had a mini melt down and insisted we stop. Closest I've come to hyperthermia I think. It was my first long bike trip and I only had uggies on my feet and leaky rain gear. I learnt fast.

Abbi, that's absolutely gorgeous... I love the seat under the tree and the colour in the flower beds. The mild summers sound pretty good too.... and I think I could cope with the good book and the open fire in winter - sounds idyllic. And I bet you don't get carried off by mosquitoes every time you set foot outside the door at this time of the year either :(

Hardly any mossies here Lin. I do have lots more flies though.....this is sheep country! :roll: :roll:

Weatherchannel says the whole country is in the grip of a heatwave, but it was only mid twenties here. Same as Hobart.
