Pack the Essentials for your Australia Day Road Trip

What have you packed for your Australia Day Road Trip?

It’s just around the corner…the first 2019 public holiday after the Christmas Break!


If you’re not planning on resting up and enjoying a good old barbie
at home then no doubt you’re headed on a  road trip!

Here are the 10 most rated essentials to prepare before an Aussie long weekend get away.

  • Vehicle safety checks – before you go anywhere check your spare tyre, tyre pressures, washer fluid, wiper blades, indicators, lights, brake lights, coolant & engine oil level.

  • Roadside Assistance – In addition to your vehicle safety checks, ensure your Roadside Assistance is current and covers you for where you’re headed. If you are an existing Pit Lane customer, make sure your complimentary roadside is in your glove box.

  • Getting started – check your planned route via the many Map Apps now available. This will assist you with avoiding traffic, congestion and delay.

  • Entertainment – music, phone/ipad & charger, games for the kids. Makes the time go by quickly and enjoyably

  • Snacks – Healthy, naughty, it is a holiday. Click here for some great road trip snack ideas.

  • Water – Make sure your water bottle is full.

  • Toiletries – Paper towels, hand santiser and toilet paper because who wants to be stuck at a public toilet with no loo roll and unable to wash your hands.

  • First Aid Kit – For any minor incidents, cuts grazes. Always be prepared to dial 000 in an emergency.

  • Sunscreen – This is a staple in Australia, don’t go out in the sun without it whether you’re at a winery, the beach or a mountain top. Click for more info on Cancer Council Australia Be SunSmart program.

  • Finally – you wouldn’t be in Straya without everything trying to kill you. So don’t forget your Bug Spray!

Most importantly, Arrive at your destination safely!

Wherever you are going and whatever you are doing, the
Pit Lane Team wishes you a safe and Happy Australia Day.
