Gear Advice

Here is some advice from Auswalk on the types of clothing and equipment we recommend for our Australian walking holidays. And remember – there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing! What to wear and bring will be somewhat specific to the location of the walk. Weather and other conditions impact on what is most suitable. We have more information specific to each walk that we are happy to share if you ask, however the information is more than enough to decipher what you will need to bring.
