How cold are the Blue Mountains in June/July?

I was last there in October (2016), which had good weather. Probably haven't actually been during June) July before now, so I can only take a best attempt knowing what is common elsewhere in Australia, but I'm fairly sure the coldest it would get is single digit Celsius. (Should stay above 0)
High most likely in the teens°C

And now I've worked my memory of having been in a ticket those 7 years ago, I have renewed hope I can do well at this meet based on my placement of the (online) survivor game l was playing at the time of my visit.

The Australian Bureau of Meteorology suggests avg. min 2.6°C, avg. max 9.5°C in July. No idea what that is in ye olde Farenheit. So, pretty cold by Australian standards, but almost never below freezing during the day.

I signed up as very likely/almost certain, with this much advance time I don't think I'll have a problem making it (also the weather sounds great to me, certainly a welcome respite from the unbearably humid 90s of the DC area at that time).

Okay yeah I need to log in more than once a year.

Going to look into the viability of this.

Hey! It is very likely to be the second half of July 2025 based on when most people indicated they might be available. Exact dates should be confirmed at least 12 months beforehand, but we’ll post here with any updates. :)

Hello everyone!

I have a few more details to share about Survivormeet: 'Straya Edition

Dates


The meet will run from Thursday 17 July to Wednesday 23 July 2025.

At the moment, we are planning for the core Survivor game to run on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with the other days set aside to hang out, enjoy the beautiful surrounds and go on day trips if there's interest.

Accommodation


The main accommodation has been booked! As previously mentioned, it is in the Blue Mountains region west of Sydney. It is at an "Eco Retreat" in the town of Blackheath and is accessible from Sydney via train or car. I will share some more details in due course.

This will be the main venue, however, there is additional nearby accommodation that we can add on if numbers exceed capacity.

What now?


Right now, there's nothing you need to do, other than keep those dates in mind. Flights won't be available to book for another month or two. Chris or I will follow up later with details on how to formally register.

Hooroo!

Also, the cost of the booked accommodation mentioned will be covered by Stoive and me.
