It's cold. You may be used to sitting around indoors. But there is an alternative.
As coronavirus regulations ease, campsites are making their big publicity pitch: come and pitch with us.
At the Wee Jasper Reserves, managers Michelle and Michael Waters think the long weekends coming up will be the "biggest long weekends in our time".
"If the weather is like this it will be absolutely spectacular," Mrs Waters said, in the autumnal sunshine on the banks of the Goodradigbee at the foot of the Brindabellas.
She and her husband have been wrestling with how to keep within the virus rules while opening the site for the long weekends in June.
It's a "primitive camping ground" under the regulations, which means there is no electricity supply for campers and caravaners but there is a shower and toilet block.
The sometimes irritable pressure on communal barbecues may be less in the new COVID-19-fearful world, but there could still be issues.
The NSW government has said that camping will be allowed from June 1, but it is "working through these changes and conducting risk assessments for reopening accommodation and other visitor services on a case-by-case basis".
Despite the problems, Mr and Mrs Waters still think opening is on.
"We obviously will have social distancing," Mrs Waters said.
"We will need people to have sanitiser with them. We will need people to use common sense."
There is one big advantage to camping as winter approaches - guests will be allowed to have real fires.
"They ask all summer if they can have a camp fire and they can't," she said.
"But in the winter, in the autumn and early spring, you can have the most amazing campfires and the most amazing ambience, sitting around watching the glow."
Their park is so big that tents can be pitched far apart, and they aren't tied to an electricity supply so the distancing won't be a problem.
But at other campsites, the rules weren't so clear. Will some camping places be left empty, for example, so that tents can be spaced apart?
Some of the bigger enterprises have already said they will be open.
"In our parks, increased cleaning and hygiene practices have been implemented," read a statement from Big4, which has 18 holiday parks across the South Coast.
"The usual COVID practices of social distancing (1.5 metres) and the 'one person per four square metres' indoor rule is applicable in all parks in all regions. Our owners have spent the last few weeks deep-cleaning and refurbishing their parks and can't wait to welcome you back."
The situation in the ACT is different from that in NSW. The ACT government advice is blunt: "Can I go camping? No. Campgrounds in the ACT remain closed at this time."
There are two long weekends coming, next weekend and the one after - the first for Canberra's Reconciliation Day and the second for the Queen's Birthday.
The Caravan and Camping Industry Association in NSW said there had been an increase in interest the moment the opening of sites from June 1 was announced.
"We saw a huge spike in Google searches for caravan parks and campsites right after [that] morning's announcement, with people looking to plan and book their next getaway," the association's chief executive, Lyndel Gray, said.
"We are definitely seeing a pent-up demand for caravan and camping escapes and our holiday parks are ready to welcome holidaymakers back from June 1."
He said demand for caravans had not fallen. "Intention to purchase caravans and recreational vehicles remains positive," he said.
"The great thing about caravan and camping holidays is there is natural social distancing from self-contained cabins, state-of-the-art recreation vehicles with all their own amenities on board, or to large campsites, many with their own ensuites."
