Re: Camping in 'extremes'

Does anyone have any experience in 'camping' in the Uluru area for several days and the next week 'camping' in the Kakadu National Park in July?

We are travelling northwards on the train and then flying to Sydney so we are trying to minimise the amount of luggage we take. We have bought some heavy jackets, beanies and sleeping bags but will probably not need the heavier items in the tropics. Probably we will leave items that we don't need at an Opportunity shop in the Alice.

However we would appreciate further ideas of items that we need (or don't need). Both of the 'camping' safaris will be escorted - Emu tours in Alice Springs and Wayoutback in Darwin.

Temps in Kakadu may drop in the next few weeks, so maybe dont be too hasty in getting rid of warm stuff, but it wont be as cold as Alice S.

Usually you are better off having a few thin thermal layers rather than a thick jacket. As soon as the sun comes up it heats up and nice and warm.
