    Bring a duffle bag

    Pink packing cubes blue duffle bag

    Luggage and bags: We always bring a soft sided duffle bag with us when we travel. Because we each can ultimately check two bags, this is a way to off load some weight of the primary suitcases. We usually put all the dirty laundry in the duffle, I don't think any thieves would want to much with dirty laundry, but then you never know.

    We also use packing cubes to organize the bags neatly. It is a great help if customs wants to open your bags.

    Packing List

    by davidlop Updated Apr 19, 2006

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Opera house from Harbour bridge area

    Luggage and bags: A light bag to carry your camera, maps/guide, a light coat for the sunset/night time, etc.)

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Confortable walking shoes (Sydney is a nice city to walk by), light clothes (depending on season, of course), maybe an umbrella (just in case).

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Just your teeth paste and brush, and some sunscreen in a sunny day if you're wearing a T-shirt :)

    Photo Equipment: Any you have is Ok, but check for the film: in my country is less than half the price. If you buy it at home for less than AUD 7 (24 exp. ISO 100) , just bring 3-4 with you :) Update: unless you have a digital camera, then bring some sort of backup media!

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: In summer, have your swim suit with you, there's plenty of nice beaches around Sydney!

    Miscellaneous: You can buy anything on your way, and not expensive at all (well, maybe except some import products). You may also bring somebody to share your café or meal stops/talks, or you may find him/her around, anyway ;)
