The key to a great holiday in the Uluru is not the activities you do, the people you meet, or the weather you face but what you pack in your suitcase.

The Aussie outback is home to harsh terrain and isn’t your typical holiday vacation. If you forget something you cannot simply head down to the local supermarket or dismiss it as unimportant for some key objects are essential for the long journey to Uluru.

But don’t despair, for we have the ultimate outback adventure travel list which will turn your holiday into an unforgettable and laid-back adventure.

  • Clothes to suit the Weather

    Uluru and its surrounds are thought to be a dry, deserted land with the scorching sun heating up the rocks and sand, and for the most part, it is. But like any other place, the heat and weather shift with the changing seasons. With Spring and Summer guaranteeing sweltering hot days reaching low to mid-thirties. As well as Autumn and Winter’s time packed full of extremely cold days, dropping down to minus degrees at times. With hot days and cold nights, packing a suitcase for both can fill up the bag quickly. That’s why we suggest using layers, no matter what time of year. Letting you pile on or strip off layers when the weather shifts throughout your holiday.

  • Shoes

    What else do you do in the outback but trek everywhere? So, packing a pair of walking shoes, runners, or hiking boots is essential. Make sure you wear these shoes in, so you can avoid any blisters that might occur during the journey. Thick socks help with the constant walking strain and cold during the winter time. If it’s the hotter months, packing a pair of adventure sandals can also help you stay cool while still climbing and jumping any hiking obstacles.

  • Toiletries and other

    The dry region, with its scorching sun and the ice-cold wind sure do a number on your skin. So, making sure you’ve got your skin protected is always a good move. This includes the necessities, like sunscreen, lip balm, baby wipes, and lotion, so you can protect, clean yourself, and moisturise yourself even deep within the outback. Don’t forget other protection gear, like bug repellent and first aid, in case you get unlucky during your trekking.

Even if you do forget some essentials, most of the time the nearby travellers will all be willing to share, so don’t stress too much about it. Regardless of how long you travel, where you go, or what you do, we guarantee you will be ready for anything when you pack these crucial travel gear for your Uluru and Surrounds adventure.
