    Weather Changes

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Always be aware that Adelaides weather can change really fast. When my inlaws were here from the UK, they were amazed that one day it could be 40C and the next could be 20C. Always have a jumper handy, as the weather can be really changable, especially near the coast or in the hills.

    Clothing and what to wear

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: While SA continues the Australian theme of casualness in its dress habits, it does boast a fine sense of style. A better quality of clothing can be found amongst its residents. Again, dress for the season. In summer the weather can suddenly turn cool, so a jacket of some sort is essential. In winter you need to dress accordingly, especially to protect against the wind.

    Miscellaneous: Boots during the winter, open toed can be used for summer where the it can hit up to 40'.

    Luggage and bags: Personal perferences.No doubt on that.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Clothings:
    I was there during the winter season in July.It is definitely much colder than Perth. I was ....freeezing! Bring an extra jacket for sure.Not forgetting wollen socks.
    As for shoes: check out my foot album.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Moisturiser creams is a must.I;m sure you wouldn't want to walk around with flaky skin.Share it with your loved ones, husbands, boy/girlfriends....
    An essentila first aid kit may come on handy.

    Miscellaneous: Not forgetting the "Slip slap slop" on your sunscreen during summer and winter as well.The UV level is rather high in Australia.

    Luggage and bags: Need not to carry anything heavy. It's more convenient so you can travel around easier.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Last month when i went there was Autumn. Trust me, it didn't feel anything like Autumn at all! The temperature was around 22 - 24 degrees. It was a great weather- you can just put on your sandals, a pair of shorts, a tee and probably a pair of shades and a hat. Jackets only needed early in the morning and at night. Stroll along the Glenelg Beach on the Autumn season in your summer outfit! =)

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can get anything at the pharmacies or supermarkets in Adelaide. No worries

    Photo Equipment: They have all the facilities there

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Slap on some sun block while you're there, k.

    Packing List

    by Ilena Written Sep 8, 2002

    Luggage and bags: Anything from a backpack up should do you fine, depending on how much you want to pack.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: You probably only need an umbrella. If you get electric shocks a lot, try to avoid synthetic clothing because Adelaide is very dry.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen - 30+!! Otherwise, pretty much everything is there. You have to ask for paracetamol over the counter though.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Lots of sunscreen. If you are hiking or camping in the bush, take long pants, a long sleeved shirt and sensible shoes, even if it is hot. If camping in desert areas, take warm clothes for the night - even in summer it gets very cold.
