Some of the essential items which should be included in your pack are: first
aid kit, and matches.
In some areas and at various times of the year, you can expect
dramatic weather changes. There can also be dramatic temperature
changes such as between midday and night times. Depending on the
time of year, and for expected weather changes, other essential items
should include a space blanket, a parka and a woollen pullover, for
the colder periods, and during summer, a hat.
If you are setting
out from the main scenic viewing areas and tourist spots, carry a
detailed map. These can be obtained from most camping stores,
tourist centres and some National Parks and Wildlife Offices.
Your safety is
important, so be aware and be prepared.
