I found that if you book the basics, ie, flights, hotel , and visa, then local tours can all be booked when you get there, all hotels will have a tour desk, even backpackers hostels. Also there are laundrette rooms in many hotels, so you can easily wash stuff through if you are travelling light. I tend to travel heavy, with dive gear and camera gear, but few clothes, more or less stuffed in around other stuff. Toiletries are the same brands you would buy here, supermarkets like Coles very much like Morrison's. Don't forget your driving licence if you plan on car hire, although public transport is very organised and linked up.
