Walkabout Park
Check CALGA weather

Tips to interpret the forecast

Calga's weather is NOT the same as Sydney's or Gosford's. Often, it may be pouring with rain there, but we have no rain at all in Calga all day.

Walkabout Park sits high up at the top of the ridgeline so the rain seldom hangs around for long, and the ground dries up very quickly when it stops.

We have been using Weatherzone since 2009 and have found its predictions astonishingly accurate for Calga.
How we interpret the Calga weather forecast:


If it does rain, bring your gum boots and rain jacket for a fun day out jumping in the puddles! Tuck some coins in your pocket for hot chocolate, and you're all set for any weather. We don't recommend umbrellas as they might get hooked on the tree branches. Rain jackets give you so much more freedom. Or you can hang out on the verandah.

Showers
usually means the rain will only last a short while. In our experience, this is usually 5 to 10 minutes.

Storm usually means a short burst of heavy rain, or sometimes thunder and lightening with no rain at all.

Rain usually means the rain will hang around for longer periods, but check the time of day it is predicted to fall (often it only rains for part of the day, or late at night and in the early morning).

5% usually means it won't rain.

20% or less means it is extremely unlikely that it will rain.

50% means just that, it is just as likely that it won't rain as that it will.

70% or more means it will probably rain, but check the time of day it is predicted to fall (often it only rains late at night) and how many mm (often it will rain but only a very small amount and for a very short period).

10mm or less means that any rain, if it does fall, is likely to be for a very short period - maybe only 5 minutes.

50mm or more means that rain is likely to be steady for periods, but check the time of day it is predicted to fall as it is often between midnight and 9am with dry days.

70mm or more means that rain is likely to continuous, but check the time of day it is predicted to fall as it is often between midnight and 9am with dry days.
