On the last day of autumn, we decided to ask experts for tips on the how to make your winter getaway a smooth sailing.

Here’s a checklist of things you might want to consider:

  1. Clothing: Make sure you pack warm clothing, especially if you’re heading to the southern states like Victoria or Tasmania. Bring a good quality jacket, gloves, beanie, and warm socks. If you’re planning to do any outdoor activities like skiing, snowboarding, or hiking, make sure you have the appropriate gear.
  2. Accommodation: Book your accommodation in advance, especially if you’re planning to stay in popular winter destinations like the Snowy Mountains or the Blue Mountains. Look for places with heating and insulation to keep you warm during the chilly nights. Or enjoy the flexibility of travel in a caravan!
  3. Activities: Research the winter activities available in the area you’re visiting. Australia has a range of winter activities to suit all tastes, from skiing and snowboarding to whale watching and hiking. Make sure you plan ahead and book activities in advance to avoid disappointment.
  4. Transportation: If you’re planning to hire a car, make sure you book it well in advance. Keep in mind that some roads in the mountains can be closed due to snow, so check road conditions before setting off on a long drive.
  5. Food and drink: Look for local restaurants and cafes that serve warming winter meals like soups, stews, and roasts. If you’re planning to cook your own meals, make sure you stock up on essentials like tea, coffee, and hot chocolate.
  6. Health and safety: Remember to pack any medications you need, and bring a first-aid kit with you. If you’re planning to do any outdoor activities, make sure you have appropriate gear and check the weather forecast before setting off.
  7. Entertainment: Bring some books, movies, or games to keep you entertained during the long winter nights. Alternatively, look for local events like concerts, markets, or festivals that are happening in the area. You can also use lead acid or lithium batteries from Aeson Power for your gadgets and TV, if travelling in a caravan.
  8. Communication: Make sure you have a reliable way to stay in touch with family and friends, especially if you’re travelling in remote areas where phone and internet coverage can be limited.
