Hands up if you’re heading off on a camping trip over the Easter break! As Aussies, we love taking stock of the Good Friday and Easter Monday holidays to get away with the family and friends. Of course, there’s always that one thing that you forget to bring until it’s too late, whether it’s toilet paper, a first aid kit, fire starters or whatever else. Then there’s the things you probably wouldn’t have even thought of.
Whether you’re hitting the road, the beach or the dirt track, check out our 5 top camping hacks for a hassle-free Easter camping trip.
It seems the rainy season has come a little late this year, which means you’ll want to be prepared for wet and muddy conditions should the heavens open up during the public holidays. And while you might not be too concerned about your hair getting messed up while camping, it’s your muddy feet that can cause a real mess in hard to clean places like your tent. To keep your feet dry and your tent super clean, check out our slip-on rubber Gummies! These multipurpose gumboots are perfect for any adventure and come in two styles and a range of funky colours.
Depending on where you go, fresh drinking water might be a bit of a pain to get your hands on. And even if it is nearby, chances are it’ll go warm within the hour when you’re out and about in the sun. This is why we love our Watermate drink bottles so much! These stainless-steel bottles are double walled to keep your water cold for up to 24 hours and come in a range of colours from black, green & blue to pink, purple and heaps more. They also come in two convenient sizes – 550mL & 950mL – so even the kids will find their perfect match.
One of the best parts about camping is waking up and getting stuck into some good old bacon and scrambled eggs around the campfire. By lunchtime, though, the flies have attacked any remnants of food that’s been left out on the snack table. Whether you’ve got corn chips, salads, cold meats or a BBQ, our Buzz Off Food Cover is the perfect way to keep your food in reach while protected from bugs and pests. And the best part? They’re super light to help you save space but come with weighted corners to ensure it won’t blow away on a windy day.
Heading out for a day at the beach? Keep your towels clean and your clothes dry with our favourite beach accessory, Drysak. These handy bags are made from ultra-durable PVC and are double stitched to ensure the sun, sand and water stay out of your stuff. Forget plastic bags that break or tear and end up as litter. With a convenient shoulder strap and available in a range of funky designs, Drysak is the perfect solution to a day at the park, beach or bush.
If you’ve ever slept in a tent, you’ll understand the pain of the sun shining through and waking you up at the crack of dawn. And because the Easter holidays are all about enjoying time with the family, it’s so important to get a good night’s sleep to make sure you’re pumped for a full day of Easter egg hunts, food, booze and all the rest. The answer? Take one of our lightweight Eye Masks! These lifesavers come in a range of colours, complete with fun quotes, to block out the light and remind the kids that it’s nap time.
We hope you have a wonderful long weekend camping with friends and family & the Easter bunny spoils you with all the choccy eggs your heart desires!
