Some people I know lived in Burnie for a while. They reckoned the weather was much nicer on the eastern side of the hill compared to the western side. You've got to take what you can afford though.

Good luck Digger.

And Cranked, I'm just yanking your chain, ever so gently mate. Don't take it seriously.

It's Lembongan, btw.

Stanley is really pretty too. Saw some nice beachies on the Western side of “The Nut” when I was there.

Agreed. I was thinking the same thing.

A couple of surfers I know here, started doing regular trips to Marrawah and raved about it. They liked it so much that after a couple of years they upped sticks and moved there.

That was about 6 years ago and I haven't seen them since. They were originally from Capetown, probably missed the cold water of their hometown.

We bought a house in queenstown. 5 bed, repayments of only 70 a week, really bloody small mortgage. Can’t go wrong when we like small town living. I’m gonna set up a shaping bay, make some bellys with trail harbour in mind. We’re leaving gympie on the 24th next month. Time to check out of the east coast.

Same sentiment from me, digger. All the best to you and your family

Little bit out of the way from the direct route, but it'd be great to have another paddle out with you. I'm just about ready to trial my knee. Last surf was November. Hoping it stands up and Autumn is a good one

Cheers Rust and no mate it’s not. It’s 56 Macnamara Street Queenstown for 85000. At the moment on realestate.com.au it says under offer. If anyone ever travels that way on the West Coast after April drop us a line and we can catch a wave. Though I will be without internet till September or October. Will pm my number for those interested. Will be leaving 24 March and will be offline for quite a while. The house also has no tv antenna and I don’t intend to get one till we have finished the inside renovations. My bay should take a few months to finish then it will be open to any who wish to use it and then test there creation in some good waves. Though I know there are so many better places climate wise to visit. Will post a pic of the place later.

Good the fcuk on you, digger. One day for sure. Stone's throw from the West and day trip to the NW. Plenty of gems nearby, in and out of the ocean. My mum spent much of her childhood on Robbins Island. I need to get there before I'm dead. Closest I got was a fantastic left just near on the mainland

I hope to jump to king island one day mate. Swvic, you know you will always be more than welcome mate. By time you get down hopefully I will have sussed out the gems near me.

I'm living in Port Campbell now. Buckets of room for the bus in the backyard if you'd like a little detour on the way down

King Island is spectacular. Spent a couple of weeks there and would return at moment's notice
