How to Pack for Your Backpacking Trip in Australia
BEFORE YOU START PACKING YOU SHOULD KNOW...
- Bring only necessities. Trust me, you’re not going to want to carry around 30kg of luggage, and you’ll acquire more things along the way!
- Suitcase or Backpack? Go halfway and get a backpack with wheels so you're prepared for any situation!
- Roll, roll, roll your clothes. It saves a lot more room in your suitcase if you don’t fold them.
- Lighten those liquids! Remember, you’re limited to 100ml in your carry-on luggage.
- Watch your weight! Check the bag weight restrictions before you get to the airport. No one likes paying extra baggage fees, and you’re not going to want to ditch your stuff!
