From what I've heard, you'll only need the following:-
Penn 8500, 10ft ugly Stick and 30lb Braid. The Gt's over there have Turbo Charged Tails and are that big they make Daryl Broughman look like Peewee Herman. ;D :o ::)

I agree with phill but will add buy from a tackle shop if possible and not from kmart or big w ( I'm not knocking these outlets ) but you want gear and advice from poeple who go fishing or poeple who has their living on the line so to speak. buying gear is a big investment and you want the best return for it , for up the rivers and creeks try an overhead outfit in the 4 to 6 kg range . I use mono line not braid ( but thats my choice others will say the other way ) also buy the best outfit you can afford. good luck
