You are interested in my packing list? You are planning a world trip or want to go to Australia on a Working Holiday Visa? Here you can find everything that I currently carry around with me in my backpack. Women always tend to take to much stuff with them. My packing list might help you to choose the most important things.



  • Fleece jacket (Quechua)
  • Hoodie
  • Cardigan (never worn)
  • Baggy pants
  • Black long trousers
  • Long sweatpants (bought in Australia due to cold nights)
  • Short sweatpants (bought in Australia for working)
  • Jeans shorts
  • Light shorts
  • Long sports leggings
  • Sports shorts
  • Long, breathable shirt
  • Shirt
  • 4 t-shirts
  • 2 tops
  • 2 sport tops
  • 7 underpants
  • 2 bras
  • 2 sports bras (one bought in Australia)
  • 5 sneaker socks (even less would be enough)
  • Comfy socks
  • Sleeping shirt
  • 2 bikinis
  • Cap
  • Flip Flops (Reef)
  • Running shoes (for hiking)
  • Sneakers (Adidas)

Tip: Less is more! So far, I am satisfied with what I packed. However, one “normal” bra would have been enough. Sport bras are so much better for hot days. They dry quickly and you can easily wash them by hand in the evening. In Australia there can be cold days and nights as well! One pair of long trousers and a fleece jacket is a must have, especially in air-conditioned buses.

Toiletries & Cosmetics

  • Washbag (Frilufts)
  • Cosmetics
  • Shower gel, shampoo, conditioner
  • Hair treatment oil
  • Micelle facial cleanser
  • Oil cleanser for the face
  • Nivea cleanser gel (bought in Australia)
  • Sunscreen SPF 50+ (really cheap in Australia!)
  • Face sunscreen SPF 50+
  • After Sun Gel
  • Deodorant
  • Lunette
  • Toothbrush, toothpaste
  • Tangle Teezer
  • Nail file & -scissors
  • Tweezer
  • Disposable razors (I regret not bringing my electric one)
  • Disinfectant spray (would leave that at home)
  • Desinfectant gel
  • Curd soap (for hand washing clothes)
  • Hand creme

Tip: When you’re traveling to Australia, bring your daily skin products with you. The selection of products and brands in Australia is quite small. Toiletries are (e.g. compared to Germany or the UK) extremely expensive.


  • One year supply of the pill
  • One year supply of thyroid medicine
  • Vitamin B12 pills (Greenfood)
  • Painkiller
  • Clinical thermometer
  • Fenistil gel for mosquito bites
  • Loperamid Akut against diarrhea (just for emergencies)
  • Dimenhydrinat against vomiting (just for emergencies)
  • Bandage and plasters
  • Betadine iodine cream (bought in Australia due to an injury)
Tip: I only took the most necessary medicines with me. In case you need a permanent medication, you should probably bring as much as you can from your home country (inform yourself about the import requirements). Everything else you can buy everywhere in the world.
