Bogong is Melbourne's leading gear store for quality hiking packs. Buying a car in Australia would only really be a good idea if you're looking to travel longer than 2-3 months with it. First of all, it takes a while to find a good car, as there are a LOT of bad ones around (we can tell you all about that!), which you'll only really know if you have the time to take it to a proper mechanic for a check, a test drive…and then you still have to be lucky.
If you go too small with your travel backpack size, each time you move accommodation you'll be wrestling with your gear and bag to make it all travelling bags fit, which gets annoying. If you're planning on backpacking the east coast of Australia, you will definitely stop in Sydney for a few days.
At Aussie Disposals we have a HUGE range of backpacks and bags for anyone who needs to get their gear from point A to point B. It's important to get a bag which suits your back and the type of gear you have to carry, but you can trust that no matter which bag you buy from us, it's going to last.
If anything goes wrong while you're on the road (we broke down every other day, but we were VERY unlucky I guess), you have to spend extra time in a place to get it fixed, which can be quite costly and is really quite stressful, especially if you're short on time (1,5 months sounds long, in Australia it isn't, trust me).
Fitting any hiking pack starts at securing the hip belts over the top crest of your hips, pull the shoulder straps firmly bringing the pack against your back and flush over your shoulders, adjust the shoulder load lifter straps to draw the weight onto your hips and then finally secure a light tension on your chest strap.
Giant logo stencils painted on building site hoardings, the infamous Beer for Bags event where beer was the only currency accepted in store during the sale, logo fruit stickers placed on millions of apples and oranges, colour by numbers toilet paper, tiny boxes of matches, controversial websites & hosting the Australian Cycle Messenger Championships.
