Why Buy Camping Gear Made in Australia

Owning the right camping gear is vital, especially when you are camping or Overlanding in Australia. Australia has a rugged terrain with a wide diversity of weather to accompany it. The Outback is also home to some less than desirable wildlife that you will need to protect yourself against and keep your distance from. Australian Made Camping Gear is ideal for fending against Australia's harsh conditions.

All in all, the Australian Outback is not something that you want to mess with. Not only is having the right gear essential but having the right high-quality made gear is essential. You should not be negligent with buying cheap gear that is not made for the harshness of Australia.

If you want heavy-duty camping gear that will weather the storms, then you should purchase camping products made in Australia. You know that you can trust camping gear made by an Australian because they know exactly the quality needed to last.

We'll detail what you need to look for in camping gear and why you should go with Australian made camping gear for your Outback adventures.

Camping Equipment and Swags that can weather the Storms


The Australian weather can be harsh, whether you are in the middle of the desert or the tropical rainforest. You can experience extreme heat as well as severe rainstorms. You do not want to go on your expedition unprepared for these elements.

Some items that are essential to be of the highest quality are swags. Your swag needs to have durable fabric that won't wither away under the sun or leak when there is a rainstorm. You will want to rest well in a swag that will keep you safe and comfortable from the elements.

For an Australian made swag, check out this Tracker Deluxe Dome High-Quality Swag. This particular swag uses a durable waterproof canvas that will last. It is also built with a high-quality mosquito net to keep out these annoying pests.

Australian Made Camping Products that can withstand the Terrain


You don't want to be caught unprepared in the Outback desert's hot and sandy terrain. You also don't want to be unprepared when you are in the heavy bushed forests. To endure every type of terrain, you will require gear that is going to last the distance whether you're in the red centre or whether you're conquering the victorian high country doused in snow.

To survive the multitude of adventures you're going to put your swag through, you should carry your swag in a heavy-duty swag bag such as this Heavy Duty PVC Swag Bag. This particular swag bag is made of some of the strongest material. Your gear will last no matter what comes your way.

Camping Gear that keeps the critters out!

Australia has a bit of a love/hate relationship with its wildlife as we love and appreciate the uniqueness that they entail, we also hate the thought of those hairy legs or slithery scales sliding their way into your bed at night. Whether you are on land or sea, you may encounter one of Australia's potentially deadly animals that you will want to keep your distance from. So you want to be well-prepared for any critter that may cross your path.

Having the right tools and equipment is essential for survival, whether fending off an animal or needing to eat for survival. A handy tool to carry with you is an all-in-one multi-purpose super tool that you can use for almost anything and everything.

One of the best tools you can have is this Leatherman Supertool 300 Stainless With Nylon Button Sheath. This Australian made toolset has 19 tools and is made of a durable metal that will last in heat or water. This toolset is very durable no matter what job it needs to perform.
