If you’re travelling to Australia, you’re certainly not alone as every year the number of people visiting this popular country is increasing dramatically. As a woman traveller, you certainly don’t want things like contraceptives and feminine hygiene products interfering with having a good time. Also, if you’re travelling alone you don’t want to become ill and not know about Australia’s health facilities and services.
Remember too, that if you’re intending to travel while pregnant, just see your doctor well in advance to get the all clear. The cities and beaches are always great to see in Australia, but if you’re visiting some of the awesome outback towns such as Kununurra or Alice Springs , if you’re on any kind of medication, remember that your particular medications might not be readily available in these outback towns.
Pack a first aid kit with a supply of your unique medicines, as well as products to do with personal safety as well as emergency health. Certainly if you use injectable medications, you will want to ensure you have your own supply of needles and syringes for hygiene purposes and for safety sake. Also things like blisters, cuts and headaches may seem like minor deterrents, but they can bring a hiking trip through the outback to a standstill if you haven’t prepared yourself with plasters, anti-inflammatories, pain killers and disinfectants.
If you’ve been literally counting the seconds towards your getaway to the land down under, you don’t want health issues ruining your excitement. Prep before you go and pack smart so that nothing stops to from having the time of your life.
