The list of items
A lot of people think this isn’t a necessity but if you out in the sun for longer than a minute in Australia, You can burn, damage your skin or even get skin cancer. Don’t risk it! Pack the strongest you can find, you might want a tan but 88 days in direct sunlight isn’t good for anyone!
