Travel tips for Australia

All the travel tips for backpackers, low budget travellers, families and more!

 

Purchase your gear for Australia

Think thoroughly well what you want to bring along on your trip. On the internet you can find many examples of a packing list and tips for what to take with you and what not. (see also the packing list or other preparation tips on this website)

The first important tip is that you should carry as little luggage as possible. Practice proves time and time again that people tend to take far more than they really need and if you add to that all the things you collect during your trip, you will end up like a pack-donkey instead of a backpacker. It is therefore useful to pack your bag as strictly as possible before you leave.

 

Helpful tips

1. Bring along some worn out clothes. Clothing you can throw away during your trip and replace for some fresh garments/underwear/shoes along the way.

2. Think carefully to what country and climate you go to and think of what you can easily buy over there so you don’t need to drag it with you on the first part of your trip. so you do not need to drag around. Furthermore, a lot of things outside Europe are much cheaper!

3. Buy your backpack, your flight bag (a bag to secure your backpack in prevention of someone putting drugs in your bag) and other equipment second hand on a website. A lot of second-hand things are as good as new and are often 75% cheaper than new stuff. This will save you a lot of money, which you can use on the trip itself (Remember; to save money = to travel longer!)

4. Instead of buying, borrow things from your friends and family if you (briefly) go abroad. You can surely borrow a backpack or perhaps a head light or something else that will come in handy.

5. Use an (old) quilt in your sleeping bag. This acts as a sleeping bag inside your actual sleeping bag and is easier to wash than your regular sleeping bag.

6. You can easily buy a backpack second hand. Salesmen in a shop will assure you (obviously a sales pitch) that you have to have a backpack/rucksack that will perfectly follow the line of your back. This is not totally true because the time that you actually carry your backpack is only little. (lifting closets during a removal does more damage to your back) A perfect fit of your backpack is not essential EXCEPT if you plan to do long hiking trips and/or you would like to hitchhike your complete journey. However, the modern backpacker will only have his backpack on his back from hostel/campground too bus/train/car and from bus/train/car to a hostel/campground. That’s it!
