The ultimate tent this summer
It’s no secret that an Aussie summer brings the heat – so it’s important to use a tent that is versatile for the climate you are in. The Fast Frame Cruiser 240 Tent is an all-rounder, perfect for touring and has total climate control. Not only convenient and spacious, this beauty allows for sun protection with easy to assemble awnings – but don’t let that stop you slapping on that sunscreen!

The Australian summer essential
Picture this – it’s mid-afternoon and you’ve just sat down after a big morning at the beach. There’s no greater feeling than reaching into a cooler and pulling out an ice-cold drink, hearing that click and seeing all the bubbles racing to the top. Keep those drinks cold all summer long with the Enduro Backpack Cooler - water resistant, highly durable and coupled with a thick EVA foam insulation – a must-have.
Capture all the action
The great thing about the outdoors is that it’s #unfiltered. From glorious stretches of sand and lush green forests, capture all the action and beautiful scenery with an Action Camera 4K – the camera made for the outdoors. No matter what the conditions and whether you’re diving under a wave, river rafting or hiking, this is the ultimate gift for the passionate explorer.
Give someone the gift of swag
For the camper who loves to escape on a last-min camping trip but isn’t a fan of lugging around an entire tent, our Mitchell Discovery King Single Swag gives them the convenience to do just that. This swag has a high density open-cell foam mattress and a sturdy canvas carry bag is included for easy transportation and storage. Who said camping is complex? Not us!
Wanting to give the gift of relaxation? Our Anywhere Hammock is the perfect gift this summer for those needing a reason to hang ten, literally anywhere. With durable fabric and rope guide and easy to install with zero assembly needed, set this bad boy up in under 10 minutes and enjoy a comfortable snooze in the shade!
A campsite staple
Kick your feet up this summer, no matter where you’re holidaying. This all-rounder camping chair really lets you relax as you recline your seat, and make use of that footrest! What a winner.
Don’t be left in the dark
Never underestimate the importance of a headlamp. Super bright, with a run time of up to 106 hours and a beam distance measured to 97 metres, trust us when we say these little superstars are going to come in handy more often than you think.
Water on the go
This one is more for the hikers – we don’t want to see you run out of water on the go! Save space and weight with one of our 1.5 or 2 litre hydration backpacks and never worry about cutting a hike short again.
Treat the kids
Become their favourite person with a new toy to take away with them to the beach – and how good does a wave rider sound? With a heavy duty polyester outer and grip handles, this will keep the kids entertained for hours.
Everyone will be a fan
A swim can only cool you down for so long, and sometimes you just need a constant source of cool air – and that’s where these come in. The portable, rechargeable fans with built-in LED lights have more than 30 continuous hours of battery life and will be your new best friend this summer.
