What is the best camping gear for an Easter getaway?

Easter is Autumn-time in Australia, and the weather remains relatively warm in most regions. However, southern alpine regions and Tasmania can get cold, and outback desert regions cool down fast when the sun goes down. Check out historical weather patterns at your intended Easter camping location, and keep updated with prevailing conditions for a safe adventure.The camping gear you pack should cover all eventualities, including weather conditions that are a little warmer or cooler than anticipated. In addition, wet weather gear is highly recommended for combatting extreme conditions. Fortunately, Anaconda has all bases covered, whether you intend to soak up the rays on the Sunshine Coast, trek the outback, or head to the high country.
