What to bring with you to Australia?

Money and documents

Australians are very scrupulous in relation to their currency – the Australian dollar. Any other money, even the most beautiful and reputable, will not be accepted here under any circumstances. It is better to exchange the required amount in Russia: currency exchange in Australia is carried out exclusively at banks that operate until 16:30 at most, and are completely closed on weekends. Plus, the percentage charged for the operation is far from “childish.” An excellent option when traveling across the Green Continent is a bank debit or credit card of any of the common payment systems. Perhaps, only in the most remote villages you may need cash.

Of course, do not forget a swimsuit or swimming trunks: the coast of two world oceans is waiting for you! Be sure to grab a cap or any other headgear, as well as sunglasses.

You can take a light jacket and comfortable shoes with you – these things will come in handy in case of unforeseen weather disasters, and if you are traveling from the north to the south.

Planning a vacation at the ski resorts? It is also better to bring the equipment with you from home to avoid unnecessary expenses for its rental.

Medication

Pain medication
Means for the normalization of digestion,
Antihistamines

Familiarize yourself in advance with what can and cannot be transported to the country. For example, it is important to know that you can bring personal items into Australia with a total value of not more than 90,000 Australian dollars.

If you have rights of an international type, then you can take them with you, because a trip by car on excellent roads is a real pleasure. If not for the right-hand traffic!
