hey Russ, i did the same thing and just ordered a summer UQ 900 "Incubator" and summer TQ 900 "Burrow" ---and i live in Ontario, not NSW! My thinking was most of my outings are in the summer, so get something that will do for summer nights. I hate being too hot.

If I start getting into winter camping, I'll just go for a dedicated winter quilt system.
BTW where do you hike there? You're really lucky. I did a nice day-hike in the Blue Mountains to the Ruined Castle. Beautiful and interesting country, even without getting off the main paths.
