What Should I Bring On A K'gari Day Trip?

During a day trip to K'gari, there isn't much you'll need to bring! Most day trips include all food and supplies, so you'll just need to think about your clothes, footwear, and what you'll want in your day bag.

As there are so many things to see and do, we recommend dressing comfortably on any 1 day trip to K'gari! It is also important to consider the season when choosing your clothes. Summer is hot, so wear warm-weather clothes with sun protection. Autumn and spring can get a bit cooler, so have an extra light layer in case you get cold. Winter can be slightly cooler, though it is still Queensland so it can be sunny and warm during the day! Definitely bring a jumper and consider long pants. Also, wear comfortable shoes as you'll be on your feet exploring!
