    Pack for the Weather

    by cjg1 Updated May 5, 2010

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The mountains are generally much coler than the city so make sure to have warm clothes or layers. Wear comfortable shoes for walking and hiking. Bring an umbrella or hooded jacket in case it rains; and it does sometimes.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: We brought sunblock, bug repellant, bandaids and aspirin.

    Photo Equipment: Digital camera

    Miscellaneous: Plenty of botled water and snacks.

    Shoes - seriously

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you intend to do any bushwalking / hiking you should take a pair of nice sturdy comfortable shoes with you. They will protect you from turning your ankle should you slip but they will also help to prevent a snake bite reaching your foot. See my tips on dangerous Australian for details.

    Don't let a little rain stop you!

    3 Sisters in the rain -and my fashionable hat!

    Luggage and bags: Remember that you aren't going to find porters lounging around the bend, so what you bring, be prepared to carry it. Make sure if you have a pack, that you can comfortably get it on and walk!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It sometimes rains.... really hard! Don't let that stop you from enjoying yourself. Take a hat if you're worried about head cover, and bring along a rain coat/ weatherproof/ plastic sheet/ whatever it takes to keep you from melting away like spun sugar. Besides, its always fun to see those other silly people who like to stand and take pictures in the rain!

    Photo Equipment: Lots of film, different sized lenses... different types of cameras... bring it all, who needs room for clothes!

    It's windy

    by Sajt Written Feb 8, 2003

    Luggage and bags: I think if you go there in the summer it will be very hot. You just need sunblock, but in the winter it's almost freezing. Bring jacket and hat. I remember some of the people from Japan. The didn't had anything and they was smiling about this. :)

    Be Prepared!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The Weather can change really quickly up here and it can get really cold overnight, even in the warmer months. Make sure you alway take some wet weather gear if you go out hiking. The changes can be really sudden.

    Shoes

    by iandsmith Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: A small backpack is good for day walks to carry some liquid.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Comfortable shoes. How many times do you hear that? The reason is because it's relevant! Imagine if you're down in the valley with a couple of hundred steps to ascend and you suddenly realise blisters are starting to appear. Not good. A strong solid sole is important if you plan to get to the bottom of the waterfalls. One thing you will not need is a big hat or sunglasses, unless you plan to walk the cliff tops. A lot of time you'll be in shade and they're not critical like at some other bushwalks that you may go on.
    For a day walk tend to be a little underdressed as you'll soon warm up and be shedding clothes that you will have to carry otherwise. One day I started out with singlet, flannel shirt and jumper. By the time we returned to our departure point I was in singlet only and sweating.

    Photo Equipment: Tripods are always a plus when filming in low light.
