Discover The Essential Camping Health & Safety Supplies

Camping is generally a safe and fun way for the whole family to get away. However, getting out into nature does mean that you're often further away from help should you need it and, because you're usually being active, accidents can always happen. What's more, you'll be more exposed to the elements as well as coming into contact with insects and wildlife so it's important to be prepared. A snake bite kit, or at minimum a compression bandage, is an essential piece of kit to have with you at all times. It's also a good idea to have a GPS so you know where you are or, if you're going further afield, take an emergency beacon so you can call for help if you get into trouble. Being equipped for an emergency is not just a good idea, it can be the difference between a treatable, minor injury and your holiday being cut short.

With well-known brands such as Carve and Bushmans, our range of camping safety gear is perfectly suited to Australia, renowned for its creepy crawlies and, while many of them are harmless, bites and stings are all too common. For this reason, it's a good idea to keep a barrier between you and them. Insect protection such as mosquito nets, insect repellent and sting treatment gel will help you keep the bugs at bay. We all know the importance of sun protection but many people don't realise just how easy it is to get sunburned when you're camping. Not only are you out in the elements all day, but you're also often around water, snow, and other naturally reflective substances. These can amplify the sun's rays and cause your skin to burn even faster so always remember to wear a hat, sunscreen and protective clothing.
