I've planned five week vacation throughout Austrailia and Tasmania during the month of July. After reading the posts, I'm a little concerned with the weather and how cold it'll be in some locations. I'm from Canada, and I understand the concept of a cold winter, but what should I be packing in my suitcase?! (I'll be in Melbourne, Sydney, Alice Springs, Darwin, Cairnes and Hobart.) A good rain jacket seems in good order, but will I need mitts and a tuque to walk around Hobart and Port Arthur?
Any help with my silly questions is greatly appreciated!
