Everything you could possibly want is available here in Austalia
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light and airy clothes are a must, to cope with the inevitable 40 deg days.
Cotton is great as it breathes, increasing air flow to the body and skin.
A good pair of hiking boots as there are just so many beautiful unspoilt National parks and wonderlands to explore here in Aus.
HAT- most important- wide brimmed
Lots of singlettes and shorts
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mozie repellent A MUST ( you will thank me guys seriously!)
Tweezers/ Tea tree oil- I say this for all you guys that want to do the bush walking/ get back to nature thing. We have ticks here which are these minute little buggers that like to crawl into your skin and they are a pain in the a$$ to get out. I found tea tree oil, if applied directly onto the skin, annoys the absolute sh1t out of these ticks and they crawl out. if that doesnt work your next option are tweezers. Always pull ticks out anti clockwise too.
Photo Equipment: A MUST. Bring loads of film or alternatively heaps of chips to wack into your digital camera. Wherever you go there will be so many photographic opportunities.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Waterproof tent with mosquito flies.
Miscellaneous: :-) Enjoy your stay you will Love it.
psst... I used to live at the bottom of this mountain- oh lah.....
