Cold Southern wind
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The Australian climate is strange. It can be very hot but at night it cools down considerably. I only packed summer stuff when I went first and I ended up wearing the long warm scarf I brought from winter cold Europe. So take a nice warm sweater with you.
Slip slop slap
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: What they say is very true! The sun is very harsh down under. So make sure you have your shoulders covered, a spf 20 or even 30 in your bag and a big sunhat! Well not a very big sunhat…just be careful.
Photography and a few basics.
