Electricity

When bringing your appliances to Australia, you may need these 2 devices:

Voltage Converter

Mains voltage in Australia is 230V 50Hz. Travellers from most nations in Asia, Africa and Europe should have appliances that work on the same mains voltage as Australia - therefore you will not need a voltage converter. Notable exceptions to this are Japan, USA and Canada which uses 100/120V 50/60Hz.

If your country does not use appliances within the 230V 50Hz mains voltage range, you will need to purchase a voltage converter.

Power Adapter

If your country does use the same mains voltage as Australia all you need is a power adapter. This enables you to plug your appliance into the sockets in Australia. Simply put, you plug your appliance into the power adapter and then plug the power adapter into the wall socket in Australia.

The plugs in Australia have two flat metal pins shaped live a "V" and some may contain a third flat pin in the centre.

Customs and quarantine

You are not allowed to bring drugs, steroids, weapons, firearms and protected wildlife into Australia. Some items as fresh fruits, eggs, meat, plants, seeds, skins and feathers are also prohibited. There is no limit on currency. Fore more information please visit:

Medication

You can bring medicine to Australia if its for personal use. Please make sure to declare them on your arrival and be ready to be subjected to controls. It is recommended to  bring a prescription or letter from your doctor outlining your medical condition and the medicine you are carrying.

Vaccinations

No vaccinations are required, unless you have come from, or have visited a yellow fever infected country within six days of your arrival. More information: http://www.health.gov.au/internet/main/Publishing.nsf/Content/health-pubhlth-strateg-communic-factsheets-yellow.htm

Australian climate

Between December and February is summer for most of the country, and the wet season in the tropical north. It's important to protect yourself from the Australian sun with a hat and SPF30+ sunscreen.
