Nerida’s Camping Essentials

Nerida is our camping (plus sales, office and business managing) expert which is why she’s the perfect person to chat with you about your camping/campervan needs! We’ve asked her to tell us her top 5 personal must-have camping products. Here goes!


Head Torch

A big must have camping accessory! Perfect for finding your way around the campsite at night, finding your way to the toilet when it’s dark and in providing light to spot nocturnal wildlife.


Collapsible bucket & cooking pot/s

SeaToSummit X Pot is a handy camping essential as it’s a great size and saves space in your van. The collapsible pot acts as both a pot and a bowl! You can cook your favourite stir-fry and eat it right out of the pot. Easy and saves washing even more dirty dishes. For more information visit –


Uno cards and chess set

A game when camping is always fun and for some it’s a tradition to whip out the Uno cards for a few hours. Perfect for passing time when the sun’s gone down or the conversation has dried up…(never!)



Who doesn’t love snacking on nuts!?

This is a great go-to food when you’re hungry and on the road wanting a little snack to share (or not) or just to have in the evening with a sundowner.

Nerida’s all-time favourite nut recipe is Annabel Crabb’s spicy nuts!

Camping essentials – the products you need for your trip

So you’ve looked at caravans and campervans for sale, you’ve bought your mode of transport and mapped out your route. What next? No matter where you are going or what your camping style, don’t leave home without these products!
o 2 x camping chairs (preferably the ones that fold together to store in a thin rod like shape as opposed to those that fold in half or otherwise).
o A small fold out bench chair/table for your cooker. You can get something like this from any of the camping shops such as Aussies or Rays. They are cheap and have many users including a platform for your cooker when the table’s full, or a third seat if someone wants to join you for dinner.
o A bottle of metho/gas to fuel your cooker.
o Cooking essentials: a pot and pan, chopping board, cutlery and preferably a camping dish set with plastic mugs, cups, plates and bowls. Picnic sets are good for this too,
o One or two nice sized Tupperware containers. Because how happy will you be tomorrow when you find that left over pasta in the fridge!
o A bottle opener.
o Bedding.
o A board game or two.
