"... but it wouldn't fit all the things I needed..."


That is 100% incorrect. What you meant to say is, "it wouldn't fit all the things I want to take..."

Seriously though, if you're going to be in a car most of the time, who cares... packing light and efficient is immaterial... bring the kitchen sink if you need to...

Have fun!

Haha I'm with you Amanda, it's going to be the clothes that kill me on packing. I'm wondering how many cooler weather clothes I need in Oz? Does it get to be heavy coat weather at all in their winter? It would save me a lot of space if I didn't need to bring sweaters and all that.

Iv head that you shouldnt need a coat really just a hoody for all year but im not sure. depends where you go i think. get a coat when your there. :) i hate packing. im half packed and already my suitcase is full so iv had to take out one or two dresses and pick my best shorts lol. im wearing most my bulky stuff on the way there and may put one or two items in hand luggage :)

Think I'll bring a few long sleeves and hats and maybe two hoodies and that should be fine. I just remember when I spent a semester in Northern Ireland by the end of the four months I was sick of everything I had brought to wear. :-) At least there's room for more here with most of it being small summer clothes. I don't need to start packing for at least another month yet, but I'm already dreading it!

Quoting jade.rayne

Oh oops, I said 5th up there, but I actually land on the 7th too! And yeah, I know I'm going to want to bring along half my closet and who knows what else, so I'm slightly concerned about dragging it all around with me! How long are you going for, Cate?

Hi Jade,
Im there for min 6mths but also visiting Thailand on way back!

Ive not made any plans yet regarding accomodation but would like to be in Sydney Christmas/NYE. Then visiting friends in Jan.
I really need to get myself organised!

Im dreading packing!!

Just bring anything necessary.
I can't bring a huge luggage when I'm not staying in one place... thinking of it makes me tired already...
