Australasia Packing List

Australia and New Zealand are popular gap year destinations for travellers with beautiful sandy beaches, luscious green landscapes and water sports galore!

If you decide to take your mobile phone with you, it's probably easier to take a pay as you go phone and buy a sim card while you're over there.

As with many gap year destinations, mosquitoes and sandflies can be an issue here, so make sure you stock up on some insect repellent to keep painful bites at bay.

Another thing to consider for your trip is sun protection, so we've included a handy suncream mini pack in our packing essentials list.

Australasia is known for it's stunning beaches, which call for flip flops and one of our quick drying towels to get you dry after a swim or surf!
