OZTENT CAMPING GEAR
WE PARTNERED WITH THE CREW FROM OZTENT TO TEST OUT SOME GREAT NEW GEAR!
On our recent trip into the Victorian High Country, we dropped the van off at the Mansfield Holiday Park and set off on a week 4wding and camping adventure.
WHAT GEAR DID WE TAKE??
- THE OZTENT OXLEY7 LITE TENT - If bigger is better, the Oztent Oxley 7 stands tall. It features a compact pack down size and includes an innovative pull-out extension that delivers a load of extra space. This is a great family tent.
It’s not just big, it’s clever. The tough exterior frame features aircraft quality components and a patented auto lock and release mechanism. Setup is super easy and the extra large attached awning adds even more living space.
High speed setup - Fly included - 100% waterproof material guaranteed - Pull out extension for extra space - Sleeps 7
OZTENT KING KOKODA CHAIRS - The King Kokoda Chair is one of the most popular chairs on the market. It features solid aluminum armrests which draws a lot of people in. With added lumbar support, strong construction and insulated drink holders, you have the perfect camp chair.
- OZTENT GECKO STRETCHERS - Quick and easy to set-up after a day on the tracks and super comfy padding make for a good nights sleep.
- OZTENT RIVERGUM SELF INFLATING MATTRESSES - Honestly, these are insanely good to sleep on!! The open cell foam sucks in air when the valves are open and before you know it you have a thick, comfortable mattress to sleep on. They fit perfectly in the Oztent range and even fit on the top of the stretchers if you need more comfort.
All the gear we took is exceptional quality. You really do get a great product when you buy from Oztent. It's tuff, good looking gear that stands up to real life camping trips which is exactly what you want when your heading away on a holiday with your mates or family.

Two of the most beautiful places in Australia and they're only 640km apart. From the insanely blue and clear waters of Cape Range National Park to the deep red colours of Karijini National Park. These are two locations that you definitely shouldn’t miss when travelling Australia. I’m going to tell you the highlights and how we tackled these amazing parts of Oz.
Travelling Australia is something we’ve always wanted to do. Explore each and every state, chase the sunshine, live by the beach and have quality time together as a family. It's very appealing isn't it! Deciding to travel Australia is a very daunting decision, an exciting one too! Looking back now, I think that its a pretty courageous decision, to pack up your life and drive into a world of unknown.
Kununurra in WA through to Kakadu, NT is one of our favourite stretches. The diversity of landscape is incredible and you can go from red dust to waterfall to coastline in no time. An epic adventure!
Below is our itinerary.
Leaving your home, family and friends, selling all your belonging to hit the road on a trip of lifetime! Its very daunting, exciting and a whirlwind of emotions. After lots of conversation with each other, we were expectant of an adjustment period but nothing can prepare you for it. Other than patience and a lot of it!
In this itinerary we tackle one of Australia's great tourist regions,"The Great Barrier Reef". We travel with our caravan in tow from Brisbane to Cairns and explore as much as we can along the way! There are so many great tours, attractions, campsites and scenery to discover along this coastline. We hope you can use this itinerary to help plan your own "Ultimate Great Barrier Reef Drive" - Cheers!!
So far we have done a full lap of Oz and been on the road since Dec 2015. We left from gorgeous Newcastle, NSW and headed north. We chose to go anti clockwise to do Cape York at the start of the dry season and to miss the migration of travellers heading south and across the bottom.
When setting off on your caravan travels, there are a few things we suggest to set yourself up for touring.
1. Good floor matting 2. A few 240volt leads to reach every power box 3. A few water hoses and a waste hose for the van as well as a flexible one for an outdoor shower. READ MORE…..
