The clothes to bring will vary depending on weather and duration of your trip, but these are our essentials:

  • Underthings: socks/jocks etc. Always pack more than you think you will need.

  • Tops: 3 t-shirts/tops, 1 flanno (protection from cold or from sun)

  • Warm things: Depends on the weather, but make sure you bring at least one jumper even if you don't think you'll need it

  • Wet things: bathers & a towel

  • Food prep: chopping board and knife

  • One set utensils per person (knife, fork, spoon, plate, bowl, cups)

  • Aluminium Foil

  • Zip lock bags (we found these rad biodegradable compostable ones from biobag)

  • Olive oil (we love those new casks of oil from Grampian's)

Some of our camp cooking gear


  • Hot plate suitable for going over a fire

  • Camp oven

  • Billie or bush kettle

  • Jaffle iron

  • Skillet or wok

  • Long tongs, long spatula

  • Grill basket

  • Heat source: We prefer fire cooking but realistically its not always an option (e.g. fire ban). A simple gas cooker or a BioLite are the best alternatives to a good-old-fire.
