Packing list tips

 

Packing list

As I’ve mentioned before it’s very handy to take as little stuff with you as possible on your trip (humans are collectors and so during your trip you’ll collect a ton of stuff anyway!). But what exactly should you pack? What are you going to need in Australia? Below you’ll find a list with things you’ll absolutely be needing, things that are really handy and even multifunctional. There’s also a packing list for the right (amount of) clothes for your trip to Australia.

 

Practical packing list

1.Electrical multi socket. (This is really handy when you want to charge more than one thing at once, and you only have one travel adapter that fits a Dutch plug into a Australian socket). You want as many electrical outlets as possible, this makes it easier for other backpackers to approach you when asking to charge something. This is a easy way to make contact!

2.Head light (for sale at the Wibra for 1,99 euro)

3.Travel bag for over you backpack (prevents people from putting stuff in your bag while flying) + lock

4.No sunscreen (Australia has a different density ozone layer, and so you’ll need a sunscreen with a different makeup). Handy to buy there. Most of the time, it’s also cheaper!

5.(necessary) Medicines

6.First aid kit.

7.Simlock free phone. This is handy because you can buy a sim card in Australia en put it in your phone.

8.Camera (on your phone). You often bring your phone everywhere. If it has a camera, you can take pictures of everything.

9.Credit card/world pay package (this way you don’t have to pay transaction costs every time you want to pay for something). Check this with your bank.

10.A normal camera with an extra charger and batteries. You don’t want it to fail you in the middle of no where....

11.Rechargeable batteries and charger. In the long term, this will save you money. These are also really easy to purchase on second-hand websites.

12.Mini-laptop (smartphones nowadays also do the job).

13.Old clothes (like socks that are worn out) that you can get rid of during your trip and easily replace over there.

14.Vacuum bags. These bags can be filled with clothes. When you roll this bag up all the air will leave the bag which will result in a very small package. This will leave you extra room in your luggage! (for sale by the Blokker).

15.Fanny pack for under your clothes. This is a flat bag that clips around your waist where you can, for example, keep your money and passport. Because it’s close to you, it’s harder to steal from.

16.(old) Comforter cover (for in your sleeping bag).

17.Sleeping bag

18.Towel made of hydrophilic diapers (for sale at the Hema, Zeeman, Action, Wibra. You can get three towel for about 2,99 euro). The practical thing about hydrophilic diapers is that they dry faster than any other ‘travel towel’ that exists!! Besides they’re also a lot cheaper! Ask you mom/grandmother about hydrophilic diapers, back in the old days everybody used to use them for baby’s, because it really is the best towel that exists!!
