Summer in Australia is iconic. White beaches, short shorts, frosty air-conditioning, and Gaytime ice creams. Summer is the epitome of Aussie culture. And what better way to celebrate the glorious weather than to gather your friends and family and hit the tar for an exploratory road trip.
We’ve compiled a list of all the must haves to keep you occupied and hydrated while you brave the scorching hot Australian countryside.
Firstly, an Australian standard you will need on your road trip is (obviously) sunscreen. It’s surprising how burnt you can get from sitting in a car all day with the sun beaming through that hole in our ozone layer. Keep applying regularly to avoid skin damage. Remember the good ol’ Aussie primary saying, ‘slip slop slap…’ and don’t forget your hat!
Next, you will obviously need some snacks. Cut up some apples, grapes, strawberries, and watermelon for quick and easy, healthy treats to keep your energy levels up, to ensure you stay alert while driving. Make sure you have a selection of chips and chocolate on hand to keep you going throughout the day. There’s nothing like a sneaky, salty treat while you’re stuck in a car. It’s important to keep everyone happy during those long trips on the road, our Cadbury Deluxe Gift bouquet is a crowd pleaser with a little something for everyone.
After you’ve finished your snacks, the boredom may set in. There are some exotic sights to see on your Australian journey, but you will be seeing a fair bit of dead grass (it’s Australia, remember). So, make sure you’re prepared with some travel games. Of course, iSpy is a classic game to play, but it’s always good to sort out some games beforehand, so you’re fully prepared.
We are pretty sure we don’t need to remind you of this one, but don’t forget your fresh, icy water. Come on. You’re traveling around Australia… in Summer – you’re going to need some water.
Another essential to take while you’re traveling is a summer playlist. Gather your good vibe tunes and download them early so you’re not wasting precious data while you’re adventuring. Also, don’t forget your phone charger and car adaptor or you’re really not going to have a good time.
