Packing Hints & what not to take

Australia has so many great places to see and do but it is also important to make sure you pack appropriately for your trip.

What should I bring?

Everyone has different preferences as to what they like to take with them on their travels but here are some helpful hints to help you get started.

  • Bug and sun protection

The ‘mozzies can be a nuisance and the sun in Australia is strong so it is best to pack protection against both

  • Personal organiser

Bringing a small plastic folder can be useful for keeping all your travel documents and itineraries safe and handy. Most importantly, don’t forget your passport and visa information.

  • Electrical items

Be sure to pack your camera so you can capture the wonderful sights you will encounter on your trip. Phone chargers are always a must and bring a universal plug adaptor so you will be able to use your electrical items when in Australia.


  • Beach towel and swimwear

Australia has some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world so be sure to pack the essentials for your trips to the beach.  Snorkelling equipment can be bought or rented when you arrive.
