If you’re an outdoorsy type, and you have mates of a similar disposition, you’ll probably start to hear the name ‘Outdoria’ bandied around a bit. So we thought it’d be nice if we introduced ourselves properly – hi, we’re Outdorians, and it’s good to meet you.
We’re all about escaping the everyday; finding those awesome little spots both on and off the beaten track. These probably aren’t on the front page of a glossy travel mag but they’re even better for that fact.
You know that feeling when you discover a secret spot – like a shady little campsite with a nice place to cast out a line just a couple of metres from your tent? Or maybe it’s a rock face that’s just a little further afield than the one everybody’s banging on about. It could even be a caravan park you've been going to forever and know like the back of your hand – it’s your spot, you’re willing to share it with a few close mates but that’s about it. It’s that feeling that makes it all worthwhile for us.
We also want to make sure that when you get to where you’re going, you’ve got the gear you need to make that trip as good as it possibly can be. Ever gone on a fishing trip with a reel that jams every second cast? Or been camping in a leaky tent? Then you know what we’re talking about.
We figure there are three things you need to do to make sure you have a great time in the outdoors: plan, book and equip. We love getting off grid as much as anyone (particularly because we spend our working week in an office). The thing is, we’re often pretty busy too and – even when we’re not – spending ages trawling the internet looking for the best places to buy gear and book our next escape isn’t our idea of a great time.
So we thought we'd create a place where you can do pretty much everything you need to do to book, plan and equip all your outdoor adventures. And we reckon it’s going to be pretty sweet.
To do this, we’re bringing together two sites – Outdoria (where you can buy and sell outdoor gear) and GoSeeAustralia (where you can book caravan and campsites) – so you can browse and buy outdoor gear from a heap of different stores and book stays at caravan parks and campgrounds around the country – all in one place.
But more than this, we’re sharing our own experiences and stories and talking to travelers and outdoor experts who want to share theirs. Every week, we’re creating articles and images to keep you inspired and informed. That’s what we mean when we say we’re building a one stop place for everything outdoors.
We’re doing this because we believe that great things come from working together as a community (ok, so that sounds a bit fluffy but it’s true). We love the outdoors and we reckon you must too. So let’s get to know each other better because together we can create something truly great for all of us.
If you haven't yet, sign up to our newsletter and we'll send you great articles and deals every week.
See you out there!
