What do I bring?

  • Below is a recommendation only of items you should consider when travelling around Australia. Most items can be purchased cheaply once you’ve arrived, or can be hired when you collect your vehicle.

    Australia has a very mixed climate, temperate in the south east, tropical in the north, and a significant part of the country is arid desert (the hot kind). Note that coastal areas can have unpredictable weather, so it’s always best to check out the forecast before you leave a major centre.. For more information on climate in Australia, refer to the Bureau of Meteorology website. This resource will give you up to date weather forecasts for all major centres and rural central, weather warnings and sea conditions for those heading to the reef or planning to surf.

    While we do have a variety of cute furry marsupials, we also have a fair share of less friendly critters downunder. To find out more about our unique wildlife, check out the Australian Wildlife website.

    The most important thing to bring you is your sense of adventure. We only ask that you respect our environment when you travel so it can be enjoyed for generations to come.

    • Light jersey
    • Wind breaker/jacket (if hiking or travelling in the North during wet season)
