If it hasn't happened to you yet, then it's only a matter of time – out on a trail, or camping remotely and you or one of your group twists an ankle, gets bitten by a spider, comes down with a fever or slips and bangs their head.
Having medical issues while hiking and camping is something we should all be prepared for, as even though Australia is a developed country with some of the best emergency services available, it is still huge and when you are off the beaten track it can take a long time to receive any help.
Having a first aid kit, even if you have no medical knowledge, should be essential for any hiker or camper. We have reviewed some of Australia's best first aids and compared them to take some guesswork out for you when you purchase this life-saving item.
