Great Walks

So in the interest of enjoyable times in the great outdoors here are the essentials for any overnight bushwalking or camping trip.


Once again, a no-brainer, but what’s important is getting the right pack for you. So when considering how to choose a backpack, ask yourself the following questions: Where are you going?

Once you’ve answered these you’ll have a better understanding of the type of pack you need.
