What Should I Pack For A 2-Month Business Trip To Melbourne

Briefcase in hand? All suited up? Champagne on the flight? Sounds like you’re travelling business class. Heading to Melbourne on a business trip is what many people are doing this year, after having not been able to visit the city for over two years.

So, what are you going to need to bring with you to make yourself as comfortable as possible for your stay? Here’s what the experts at StayCentral advise you to pack on a 2-month business trip to Melbourne.


There’s one thing you can’t get away without bringing on any trip… unless you’re visiting a ‘naturist’ resort. For Melbourne, however, clothes are essential – and a wide variety of them at that. The weather changes suddenly here, so you need to be well-prepared, even if you’re just visiting for a week. For a two-month trip however, we advise bringing:

  • Pants
  • Jeans
  • Suits
  • Shirts
  • Shorts/skirt
  • Dress shoes
  • Casual shoes
  • T shirts
  • Jumpers
  • Raincoats
  • Under garments
  • Hat
  • Bathers/swimmers (depending on where you’re from?)


Don’t forget important toiletries when you’re on a 2-month business trip to Melbourne. By this, we mean medications and everything else which is a hassle to replace while you’re here. For things like toothpaste, deodorant and aspirin, it’s not so important – we have those magical places called ‘supermarkets’ here too.


Can’t live with it, can’t live without it: technology is a must if you’re heading to Melbourne on a business trip. It’ll look pretty silly if you step into your first meeting and realise you’ve left your laptop at home. Here’s what to bring:

  • Laptop
  • iPad
  • Phone
  • Earpods/headphones
  • Chargers for all of these things
  • Powerboard
  • Extension lead
  • Kindle, if you use one

A big suitcase to fit everything in

You’ll need a trusty, reliable vessel to transport all of this stuff. Make sure you’ve got a perfectly-sized suitcase to carry your belongings in.

(Jetstar has a 14 kg carry-on allowance option which is great for all your technology/medicines etc that you cannot afford to lose if checked in!)

Why you should choose a serviced apartment over a hotel for extended business trips

When doing a two-month business trip, you’re not on a holiday – you’re living in a different city. So, why choose a hotel when what you need is a more liveable, long-term environment?

Serviced apartments are the way to go for long business trips. They’ve got everything you need at your fingertips: iron and ironing board, hairdryer, extra blankets, a well-stocked kitchen in which you can actually cook things (rather than those tiny kitchenettes that they have in hotels).
