A lot people that travel to Australia pack way too much stuff and end up having to lug an enormous suitcase around with them for the whole time they're in Oz.

Trust us, you don't need eight pairs of shoes!


We recommend that you get a good quality backpack (preferably one that zips open at the front and has a detachable day pack) and take around 15-20kgs of stuff with you. Anything heavier than 20kgs and you're probably going to struggle.

Below is our packing guide for your backpacking trip to Australia.


  • Passport

  • Drivers Licence

  • Credit Card

  • Padlock for your bag

  • A cloth tote bag and water bottle

  • Phone (unlocked) and charger

  • Headphones (preferably noise cancelling)

  • Power adapter for Australia

  • Casual summer clothes

  • Smart / going out clothes and shoes

  • Warm hoodie or jumper

  • Light rain jacket

  • Trainers

  • Flip flops / sandals

  • Swimwear and towel or sarong

  • Sunglasses and sunscreen

  • Underwear and summer pyjamas

  • Toiletries and any medication

  • Your favourite treat from home

  • Your Resume (if you're going to work)
