    I reckon if you contact your state BOM they would be able to put you on the right track.

    Re: Historical weather

    Here is a website for historical wind (and other data). Depending on what weather station you choose, will determine the data you get.

    http://www.bom.gov.au/climate/data/i...l?bookmark=200

    From here you can drill into historical average wind speeds and rainfall

    For historical wave info I can see Bouyweather has some data however you may need to sign up / pay for access to it

    Sing out if you need a hand drilling down into the BOM info

    Funchy, bom observations data is the simplest data set for wind but no swell to my knowledge. B/W gives me some historics as part of my subscription but i've never really looked to deep to know how much for how long.

    What, you lost faith in the forecasters and going it alone?

    Re: Historical weather

    I always found it facinating that people use past data - particularly planning a trip ........ sure you can get a ballpark idea that X month will be less windy than Y month . A mate would swear blind that changing his annual Bermagui trip from the mothers day weekend to the following has been a disaster ( weatherwise)

    I must be unlucky because quite a few trips have been a write off when looking at historical records & the opposite has occurred Cyclones early or late - high rainfall during what should have been dry strong winds any month. - time & time again. This is particularly true for northern Qld .

    Funny thing, we used to go to Narooma at Easter, and I reckon it would be very rare to have a weekend with low swell, every year was big seas and quite often a boat flipped over on the bar.

    Sounds normal, Easter is always set around a Full Moon and rarely do we have good fishing offshore weather at that time.

    Rider: this is on the Julian Calendar (except when the 2 calendars coincide) but if you follow the Gregorian Calendar for Easter most times you will get good weather.
