What to wear?
As you will transfer from Mission Beach by boat you'll need to wade through shallow waters and assist with luggage/groceries from/to the beach, boat and house...it is suggested that you have shoes that are easily removed, and maybe a change of clothes eg shorts. In winter the evenings can be cool so please pack some warm clothes.
What to pack?
Basically as little as possible. A few casual clothes and one pair of shoes, maybe some sandals or slides...don't bring towels and linen as the house is fully stocked. Do bring some of your favourite books, magazines, hat, camera, sunscreen, toothpaste, Ipod etc. If possible do not bring lots of little bags, but a duffle style bag that is easy to manage. Consider packing a small back pack and reef shoes for outdoor exploration.
