    Essentials in the Top End

    by skatzcatz Written Jun 21, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: hiking boots or sturdy shoes for any walking, sandals alos for those wet trips. Lightweight clothing, long sleeve shirt if your prone to burning and a hat.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: sunscreen amd mosquito repellent. The UV rating can be as high as 11 and for tourists from colder climates this can become very harsh. Also at dusk especially the mosquito's and sandflies can become horrific in some locations.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: beach towel

    Miscellaneous: always have water available, local water is fine to drink
