What equipment?

Hi, I am heading off travelling downunder after X-mas and would like to get some advice on what the bare essentials I should be packing into my backpack are? Apart from shorts and sun tan lotion I am at a loss???

Insect repelent, if you are going to the tropics make sure you close doors and windows half hour before sundown as the sand flies will drive you crazy, if you do get covered in bites dont scratch just have a cold shower and you will be ok. If you scratch you will have red spots for 2 weeks.

sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, mobile phone, swimmers, small towel, a small torch, a pocket knife with screwdriver etc and of course a camera.

Hope that helps you.

Make sure you pack a good pair of sunnies and I always find those lightweight travel towels that dry almost instantly are a great idea instead of luggung around a traditional bulky towel that tend to take ages to dry and a pain to wash.
