I'm travelling to Oz for a year and have never done anything like this before. I'm back pack shopping this weekend and i've no idea what i'm looking for. I'm not planning on doing lot's of hiking but i do plan on moving around the country a good bit. I'm female and fairly medium in stature and height. I don't really understand the difference between male and female back packs. Are the differences significant? What litre size should i go for etc etc......?

All help would be appreciated.......

Thanks a mil
