weather in December

Hello, I will be in KI with my boyfriend in late December, and we will be doing a 3 day backpackers style tour. What kind of clothes should we bring? I read it's never very hot in KI, and I was wondering if jackets and warm clothes will be needed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

In december on KI I really wouldn't be packing a lot of warm clothes but it can get cool at times so be prepared by packing Shorts, T shirts, shirts and then take a Jacket (not arctic type.. perhaps a Hoodie Jacket or equivalent ), and a pair of jeans or long trousers. Layer up if it gets colder but the odds are that you could equally strike a warm weather pattern where you could be in shorts and T shirts day and night. All I say is .. layers..layers .. layers... Start with shorts and a T Shirt, put a long sleeve shirt over the top of that if you get cooler, and then a jacket if cooler again, finally add jeans if it's REALLY cold .. Most important would be good walking shoes and a hat... never underestimate the strength of our sun in summer... ALWAYS put on sunscreen if you're not used to Australian Sun
