I thnk top of you list of things to pack should be
I know this is your first flight and all but really the more anxious you make yourself the less you will be able to cope. Don't worry about getting every last blessed thing down on your list of things to pack, if you ain't got it you ain't got it and that's that. You will be amazed to discover that in Australia you can buy pretty much anything (and more) that you can in the UK so it will be OK
Chill out and just think of the sun and sea, stop making yourself dizzy with the flight, it's only a small part of your holiday HTH

not that brave, went to a big family wedding and the 2 1/2 year old was a bridesmaid, flight was ok but jet lag was a bit rough, how do you tell a 2 1/2 year old and 7 month old that they really do need to sleep, but would imagine with the ages of your kids that will be a bit easier, I would be lying if I said that I wasnt jealous, we had such a great time and I'm glad that we didnt let the long flight put us off.
