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

  • 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.
