Australia is a vacation destination that has a lot to offer year round. However, packing for your trip is always the worst part. You don't want to over pack, but you don't want to not have something and end up needing it later on. Keep reading for some brief suggestions on what to take with you to spend the summer in Australia.

Sun Protection!

Whether you're hitting the beaches or exploring the outback, it's important to protect yourself from the sun. Wearing a hat with a broad brim and a copious amount of sunscreen is a decent enough start, but traveling with a good pair of sunglasses is always an excellent idea. Packing sun protection is not only an excellent way to prevent sunburns, but a cheap and easy way to keep cool in the Australian heat.

Beach Wear

With miles upon miles of beautiful beaches, it would be silly to not come prepared for a beach day even if you aren't the biggest fan. Bringing a swimming suit and a pair of sandals is an excellent way to beat the summer heat by making an into the water. A trip to an Australian beach will be hard to compare to any beaches you might visit near you.

Daily Wear

Whether you want to pack three suitcases or a single backpack, you'll want to have a variety of lightweight and airy clothing to help keep cool in the summer heat. Shorts, short sleeved shirts, tank tops, skirts, and dresses are all simple and easy ways to beat the heat. Paired with sandals or a good pair of walking shoes, you'll be all set to make the most out of your Australian adventure.

Dress Wear

You may find yourself wanting to attend an event where you'll find that your shorts and a tank top are woefully out of place. Whether you're hitting a club or attending a show at the famous Sydney Opera House, you'll want to have a selection of nice clothing to choose from to make sure that helps you put your best foot forward.

Just In Case

Like with any place in the world, the weather in Australia can change on a dime. Packing a light jacket to protect you from the wind and the rain is highly advisable. Maybe you even want to go the extra mile and pack an umbrella if you know you'll be spending time in the parts of Australia that are wet during the summer months.
