You also want to bring a comfortable pair of shoes to explore the city, comfy sneakers, hiking boots (if you plan on doing some hiking), and of course, flip flips for the beach.
5 Sunscreen that is environmentally safe for the Great Barrier Reef
If you are visiting the Great Barrier Reef it is very important to wear sunscreen that does not damage the reef and ecosystem. Even if you’re not going to the famous Great Barrier Reef, you’ll likely be doing activities that involve the ocean, and you don’t want to leave chemical residue in the water wherever you go.
6 Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is a must. It is better to be safe than sorry. Travel Insurance does not cost much but if something goes wrong, it is a lifesaver. Travel insurance covers theft, medical, emergencies etc. It’s a price worth paying for the peace of mind you’ll have while on your trip.
7 Good quality sun hat
Australia has very strong sun. You will want a hat that offers extra protection from the sun and the heat.
