The challenge with any holiday or trip, is what to bring. Do you bring that etra pair of jeans or your laptop? If you haven't travelled that much, you'll most likely pack a lot of stuff you don't really need. It takes practice and experience to slim down your bags. After enough trips you'll have it down to an art.

Though I've travelled a fair bit and can fit all I need for a week away in a small backpack, I'd never done any bike touring prior to my Oz adventure. I read countless blogs and talked to several bikers via email and in person, trying to decide what to bring and what not to bring. However, at the end of the day you just have to go for it and get rid of as you go. So here it is, my complete packing list. This is everything I started out with in Perth. What I finished with on the east coast is a lot less.
