"Packing List" Packing list Tip by paola9

Packing list, Melbourne: 20 reviews and 11 photos

Luggage and bags: It is always good to have some extra space in your backpack as there's always something to buy at Melbourne. Backpacks are easy to carry around and have lots of space. Don't bring any big luggage if you're doing backpacking...it's sort of annoying trying to move around with them on the public transport.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A sweater, a pair of warm pants, and comfy shoes are a must. Weather in Melb is changing all the time so u never know what to wear. It's a pretty cold city even in early summer...it gets better and warmer by late december though.

Photo Equipment: Lots of film!! Many interesting buildings and funky sculptures around the city. If u happen to be in Melb before travelling to other cities in Australia i'd recommend to buy most of your film here as it is cheaper. There are some camera shops on Elizabeth Street where u can get film for good prices.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: An umbrella or poncho is a must if not here during summer time. It rains a lot

Address: Melbourne
