Six-Week International Packing List

Here is my packing list as I prepared our family to take a six-week trip to Australia back in 2015.  For trips short or long, I keep a running packing list handy so that I hopefully won’t forget any basic necessities!  Good thing is, you can mostly buy it when you get there just in case.  Here’s a link to my husband’s packing list from our most recent six week European trip this summer.

This is the actual packing list from our trip Australia.

Non-Clothing Items 

My Clothing Items 

  • 2 sets of pajamas
  • 7-8 mix and match outfits (pick a color scheme so it’s easier to mix and match your outfits)
  • 2 pair of comfortable shoes (at least)
  • 10 pair of Undergarments
  • Hat and Raincoat
  • Toiletries…travel toothpaste lasted 2 weeks, travel hair spray and shaving gel lasted 3 weeks (including anything specific you use that you cannot buy more of

  • Layers/Coats (depending on the weather)

My Kids’ Clothing Items

  • 5 pair of pajamas (including one for the plane ride)
