Things You Must Pack for Your 2022 Australian Adventure


Australia is heaven for travellers, no matter how they choose to explore this country, so it’s not a surprise that it’s one of the most popular travel destinations. But Australia is also much different than any other spot, mostly due to its tricky climate. So how do you pack for a trip to Oz? Clothes and other general necessities aside, here are some of the must-haves for your adventure in the Land Down Under.

 

Plug adapter

If you want to stay connected, you need to pack a plug adapter because Australia uses different sockets than those used across Europe and many other places. Australia uses a type I plug, but also accepts unearthed 2 pin and earthed 3 pin variations. If you’re also planning to hit New Zealand, expect the same plugs.

 

Bug repellent

Australia is famous, or better-said notorious, for its creepy crawlers. While you don’t have to worry about Malaria, you still need to stay safe from insect bites. Mosquitos and sandflies can cause a lot of discomfort so a bug repellant that contains DEET should find its way to your bag.

 

Sunscreen

Australia is very close to the equator and the Earth’s damaged ozone layer, so the sun is very damaging there. Make sure to always practice sun safety and carry sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection and a high SPF (between 30 and 50.) If you’re also applying insect repellant, keep in mind that it can reduce the effectiveness of your sunscreen, so you might need to invest in a higher SPF. Something water-resistant is also smart since there’s no way you will resist Australian beaches.

 

Skincare products

Australia is a great spot for living, but it’s not very welcoming for your skin. It’s hot and dry so all the moisture can leave your skin pretty fast. Plus, the sun and salt from the ocean can cause damage as well. But as long as you have your trusted toners and lotions, your skin will stay healthy. And if you forget to bring what you usually use, you might want to try something high quality and buy Cemoy in Australia for healthy skin and glowing complexion in all weather conditions. You’ll be one of the rear people to come back from Oz with healthy skin!

 

Water bottle

Especially in the summer months, the heat in Australia can be exhausting, so every traveller needs to stay well hydrated throughout the day. In general, it’s safe to drink tap water in Australia, so make sure to reduce plastic waste by skipping bottled water and investing in a reusable bottle. If you’re backpacking and want to reduce the size of your pack, there are water bottles that can be collapsed or rolled up when empty.

 

First aid kit

Australia offers so many adventure opportunities and many dangerous crawlies, so you will probably need to treat at least a cut, blister or insect bite while you’re there. Your first aid kit should always be handy and filled with plasters, bandages, antiseptic wipes and disinfectants to clean wounds. Some of the things experts usually recommend for Australia are insect bite relief, antihistamines for allergies and paracetamol.

 

Travel pillow

This item is not crucial, but if you want to survive your long flight to Australia, it will save your life—a travel pillow. In some cases, you might get a pillow from the airline, but a quality neck pillow you bring from home has no substitutes. You can later use it in your hotel for extra support or during your Australian road trips.

Australia will welcome you with both hands no matter how unprepared you come, but it’s always better to come equipped with a few commodities and safety items. They will make your perfect Australian adventure even better!
