If you are planning a trip down under there is essential equipment you need to take with you. The country’s summers are particularly hot, and this brings with it the good and the bad things that come with this kind of climate. Even if you’re not planning to go in the summer, many on our list will still apply.
If you are planning to go to Australia, here are some things you should consider taking with you.
Spending time in Australia’s sun is glorious, but you will burn without precautions. Peaked hats are essential for keeping the sun off your face. This allows you to enjoy the delights of the beach and outdoors and stay safe from the sun.
Again, like the hat, you need sunglasses to protect your eyes from Australia’s strong UV rays.
An iPad leather case is essential for travelling around Aus. You don’t want sand getting into your favourite device. It’s just not the same. Always go for quality in this regard.
Ensure you can charge your iPad and your phone when in Australia. These devices are so much better when fully charged.
Waterproof Camera Case
If you’re taking a camera and why wouldn’t you take a waterproof camera case. The coastline is where you’ll be spending a lot of your time, so having the extra protection against the sea is advised.
Suntan Lotion and Aloe Vera Oil
High factor suntan lotion is advised, and you’ll need a lot of it. If you forget you’ll probably burn, and that’s when the relief of Aloe Vera oil comes into play.
Insect Repellent and Allergy Pills
Australia is home to a vast range of exotic creatures and insects. It is a good idea to ward them off, especially the mosquitos. The allergy pills come into play if the pollen count is high or you forget your insect repellent!
Australia in the Winter
Australia’s winters are not as cold as temperatures experienced in Europe. If you are travelling in the colder months, add these things to your list.
A good scarf has a variety of uses, and it will help keep you warm without having to wear a coat.
If you’re going on hiking trips, thermals help keep the edge off down under, when in down under!
Dressing in layers is a good idea in the winter. A few t-shirts and a thin jumper are all that is needed. Thermals come into play if you find yourself getting chilly.
Jackets and Windproof Jackets
A good jacket is a lifesaver in the evenings, and a waterproof and windproof jacket will play its part when travelling around the country.
Australia has plenty of good nightspots, and many require some kind of smart casual attire. Casinos, clubs, bars, could be off-limits to you if you turn up in a pair of jeans and trainers. Although, you should pack the latter as well.
Australia is a fantastic country, and this list should help you get the most from it.
