Earplugs in case you have noisy neighbours at the caravan park.
Blindfold as I like to sleep in a bit and it gets bright in the tent
length of rope and clothes pegs or you can buy a pegless clothesline

Depends on when and where you are going. For bigger trips I always take some fencing wire- it has certainly gotten me home on mre than one occassion. Spares- well, hoses and belts come to mind, but globes & fuses as well, and tyres obviously. Going anywhere without a camp oven these days is decidely primitive, and chainsaws sound a better idea the older you get. A nice chair to relax in, a good swag and sleeping bag are essential- expecially the latter. UHF for chatting with, an HF for emergencies and letting someone know where you will be all make sense.

Hygeine is vital and if venturing away from the bush some bottled water will save you from misfortune. Water is probably the most important, and take heaps. Some basic tools will also help, but like I said, it will depend on how far you are going. I would also advise that you be very careful about tresspassing on Aboriginal land. The fines for a white man tresspassing on Aboriginal land are significantly greater in some states than say an Aboriginal man tresspassing on white man's land. I have heard of a number of people being caught out by this so be careful.

Good luck and enjoy your camping

I also have zip ties & gaffer tape with me at all times. These have saved my bacon many a time.
