Despite what the travel guides and pamphlets at the travel agents, Australia can experience 5 seasons in a day including a real-world winter – whilst the temperatures here aren’t as low as say the rocky mountain’s or the French alps during the peak of winter.
Whilst alpine regions across the globe regularly plummet well under 20°C below zero, Australia’s capital city average minimum temperature through winter is rarely below zero, temps in more remote areas regularly drop below zero into freezing temperatures!
There are many ways to combat the frost this winter, and one of the best ways is by having the right gear for the job, there’s no point in getting all the way into the bush to have your equipment let you down.
There are a couple of essentials you MUST bring with you to make sure you stay warm, dry and happy at camp during the winter!
You need to consider setting yourself up with a reliable campsite shelter, there are a handful of options that offer campers reliable and a comfortable night sleep.
