              • Antiseptic - ti-tree oil, dettol, alcohol wipes etc.
              • Band-aids or suitable tape for blisters, cuts, abrasions etc.
              • Multiple bandages (crepe, triangular etc.) with safety pins or clips
              • a snake bandage is essential if you value your life
              • sunscreen
              • space blanket
              • a small container with details of your allergies, medication, emergency contact, next of kin
              • a first aid booklet
