David was very helpful and friendly. We got what we wanted 😊 We were after a sturdy, metal, rollup camping table.

Thank you for your positive review. Yes, the table that you purchased is one of the best on the market. We regularly run out of supply. We hope that you get many years of service out of your 'Fortis'.

I went to Bairnsdale Camping and Outdoors looking for some fibreglass rods for a dome tent. The staff member was very helpful, looking for, explaining and comparing my options. In the end, they didnt have what I needed in stock but referrred me to another store. They offered to order in what I needed if I couldn't find it accross the road.

Thanks you very much for your positive review Ian. Sorry, that we couldn't help you on the day. It has always been our position to send a customer to our opposition if we can't help them. That way the customer gets a positive outcome and any money spent in Bairnsdale stays in our town. We hope that you have many more years of service out of your dome tent.

I couldn't find a new pair of jets for my Primus stove until I found Bairnsdale Outdoor and was pleasantly surprised to find what I needed. Just one email to them and I received the parts in the mail a couple of days later. Couldn't be happier.
Highly recommended.

Thanks Greg for your kind response and review. David has a real passion trying to help people with hard to get gas jets for camping stoves. We hope that your camping stove is cooking up a storm.

i returned a hiking pack after several years which which needed some repair work .
The Owners felt that despite the age of the pack the damage should not have occurred and negotiated with the manufacturer to ensure i was supplied with a new pack.
A great result

Thanks for your positive review Wendy and Reece. Yes, David spent a lot of time in communication with the company. A positive outcome was achieved because of our 20+ year plus reputation with them and their knowledge of our expertise of the expected use of their product. We hope that you have many more years of enjoyment out of your trekking pack.

I went into this store to get some replacement metal tie downs for a tent that we had been given. I took in a example of what i needed. When the customer service person saw what i needed he said to me 'no we don't have those' then i asked if there was anything like it I could use instead. I was then told 'no nothing and thats what you get for buying a cheap tent!'
