Packing for a Caravan Holiday: Five Packing Tips

Packing for a Caravan Holiday: Five Packing Tips

Are you considering a caravan holiday? Perhaps you have friends or family members who have told you some of their exciting stories and experiences while on the road during an Aussie summer holiday. Sounds appealing, doesn’t it?

Caravans are surprisingly popular in Australia and can bring you comfort during a long stint on the road between towns and cities. Consider the below tips when packing so that you can relax and enjoy taking in the beautiful landscapes of Australia!

1. Bring your own ice

Prepackage ice in seal-lock bags. These can then be used as ice-packs, added to drinks, or you can store them in your portable fridge/freezer to bring down its temperature effectively.

2. Pre-pack as much as you possibly can

Basic food supplies, toiletries, towels and shoes can be pre-packed into your caravan ready for the next time you’re going away for a weekend/extended trip.

3. Buy a shoe bag

You can buy specialised shoe bags from a local sporting store. You’ll find that they’re made from mesh at one end and are fantastic for storing a few pairs of thongs. These are a great way to store the family’s shoes altogether!

4. Freeze your left-over food

If you have a frozen meal ready to pack for your trip, there’s dinner sorted for night one! This will prevent you from having to cook and then clean up after a day of travelling. Instead, you can relax and enjoy your first night away.

5. Befriend the paper towel

Paper towels and baby wipes go a long way on a caravanning trip. They will certainly become your best friend. They have many roles and can act as a plate, a great way to absorb grease, and of course they’re great for cleaning and mopping up spills.

These are just some of the helpful ways you can pack for your trip. Once you become a caravanning pro, you’ll be able to add to this list with your own tips! At the end of the day, the things that work best for you may not be what works best for others. Learn through experience and most of all, have a wonderful, relaxing, and rejuvenating trip! #followyourdreams
