I am looking at doing some backpacking around Australia for about 6 – 9 months…
I don’t know anything about what type of sleeping bag to go for…I have done some research and theres always a 7c or 9c number associated with each sleeping bag model…
Is this code for what climate the sleeping bag is designed for? If so what type should I be looking for?

it all depends on where in Au you go and when. Northern Australia is very warm and tropical, then you head south and it can get cold unless it is summer there, it can still get cold, but not like crazy two sleeping bags and long-johns cold. I would not recommend a negative anything sleeping bag. 7c and 9c might be degrees Celsius. You can also buy sleeping bags over there. Australia is effing awesome, I spent four months there and barely scraped the surface of its awesomeness.
