For the Whitsundays, all you’ll need is a zipless bag – think canvas shopper bag or a bag for life. The reason for this is that bed bugs can get in to zips and if a bed bug gets on to one of the wooden sailing ships, it’s fatal for the boats structure.
When packing, we recommend that you bring swimmers, sun cream, a hat, flip flops, a hoodie for the evening, basic toiletries, a towel, change of clothes, power bank, go pro and a camera. This may seem like an obvious list, but when you’re buzzing to get going it’s easy for your head to scramble.
You are allowed to bring alcohol with you, so long as it’s not in a glass bottle. But goon comes in a box, so that’s not a problem!
