Nature is Calling

The family camping trip. It’s almost become a rite of passage for every Aussie kid. Sleeping in stuffy tents by the river, in some far-off national park over the summer holidays, while enduring the sweltering heat, with only cans of baked beans to eat. Doesn’t it bring back fond memories of your childhood?

Luckily for them, technology has evolved to the point where you could almost recreate your living room and kitchen in the great outdoors. But, camping is all about getting back to basics and spending time away from the screens. Or so we tell them. This is why we have gathered every bit of camping gear worth its two cents in one place, making it easier for you to find the kit you need to make the trip go as smoothly as possible.

Leave the whining behind

Kids will come up with a million excuses not to go camping, which we have all the answers for.

  • ‘I’m hungry.’ Take some camp cookware to cook the little tykes up a feast.

  • ’The tent has no room.’ Another classic for those sleeping together in a tent too small for the group. The solution? Buy a bigger tent. It’s not rocket science.

  • ’The ground is too hard!’ Well if you had taken some bedding with you, there would be far less grumbling when they went to bed. On the other hand, you’ll also want to bring some camp furniture along to save your bottoms when lounging around the campsite.

  • ’I can’t get to sleep’ Chances are their sleeping bag isn’t as good as it used to be and it’s about time they got an upgrade.

  • I hate baked beans and canned peaches. Food often makes or break when it comes to camping. We find bringing a cooler or fridge gets rid of this complaint since you’ll be able to take all the meat, veggies, milk, eggs and cheese your tummies desire. The though next problem is knowing what to do with those ingredients...

  • ’I can’t see anything.’ Obviously, there’s no street lamps in the outback, which means you’re gonna need a couple torches and lanterns to light up your campsite when it gets dark.

Now that you’ve solved the many common gripes kids have, it’s time to get out there and explore what Australia has to offer to you and your family. Check out the camping section of our blog for more great info before you set out!
