What do I need to pack for a camping trip?

Whether you are planning your first camping trip, giving out back a crack (your backyard!) or heading on your 3rd adventure this year, it always helps to have a handy checklist before you start loading the boot or trailer with camping gear. Nobody wants to get stuck out Woop Woop without tent pegs, so we’ve put together a printable list to help you be prepared before you hit the road or head out back.

Now, every camp trip starts with a tent or swag, but what else will make your trip comfortable? We show you how you can move from the essentials to the gadgets that will help you become a BCFing expert. From floor mats to camp toilets, eskies to freezers, and buckets to solar showers, even a portable LED mini projector – we have you covered for the ultimate camping set up.

Don’t be distracted by the flashy things, it’s important that you remember to pack the safety gear. A first aid kit, food that will make the distance, water carrier, sunscreen & mozzie spray will make for happy campers. And don’t forget to pack for the weather – summer calls for long sleeved UV protection clothing and when heading on a winter getaway, don’t forget to pack rain gear and a fleece jacket.
