From sleeping gear to cooking equipment, lighting solutions to outdoor furniture, we've curated the ultimate camping checklist of essential items to elevate your camping game.

Shelter Essentials

When the weather decides to throw a curveball, you'll be glad you packed the essentials. In this case, tents, tarps, and hammocks aren't just shelters; they're your cosy retreats amidst the wilderness.

When embarking on a camping adventure, the unpredictability of Mother Nature is all part of the thrill. That's why being prepared with essential shelter items is paramount to ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience amidst the great outdoors. Let's delve into the world of shelter essentials, where camping tents, tarps, and hammocks become your sanctuaries in the wild.


Camping Tent

Tents aren’t just shelters, they become your home away from home. There are a range of camping tents designed to withstand the elements while providing maximum comfort and convenience.



For added protection from rain, wind, and sun, tarps are a versatile and essential addition to your camping gear. Whether you're creating a makeshift shelter over your tent or setting up a communal gathering space, tarps provide flexible coverage to adapt to any outdoor environment.



Perfect for lounging during lazy afternoons or enjoying a peaceful night's sleep under the stars, hammocks offer a unique and elevated camping experience.


Rooftop Tent

Experience camping like never before with rooftop tents. These tents are securely mounted atop your ute, offering stunning views, enhanced safety, and a convenient sleeping platform. With sturdy support from compatible racks, you can enjoy off-road expeditions knowing your rooftop tent is secure and ready for a cosy retreat at the end of the day. With Mountain Top's Adventure Racks, you will enjoy easy installation and the versatility to accommodate rooftop tents and other outdoor accessories.

Sleeping Gear

When it comes to enjoying a revitalising night beneath the celestial canopy, the importance of proper sleeping gear cannot be overstated. Ensure your comfort with essential items like sleeping bag or camping mattress, offering warmth and cosiness, sleeping pads for optimal cushioned support, and pillows to support your head after a day of exploration. Make sure to choose sleeping gear that suits your comfort preferences and climate conditions, ensuring you wake up feeling refreshed and ready for another day of adventure.

Cooking Equipment

One of the highlights of any camping trip is undoubtedly the food! Pack your portable camp stove, a versatile cookware set, and durable utensils to whip up some mouthwatering meals in the wilderness. From hearty breakfasts to gourmet dinners, cooking outdoors adds an extra layer of enjoyment to your camping experience. Don't forget to pack essentials like a cutting board, knife, and cooking utensils to make meal preparation a breeze.

First Aid Kit

Safety should always be a top priority when venturing into the wilderness. Be prepared for any minor injuries or ailments by packing a well-equipped first aid kit.

Additionally, include items like insect repellent, sunscreen, and blister treatment to protect against outdoor hazards and ensure a safe and enjoyable camping experience for everyone.

Pack a deck of cards, a favourite novel, or a compact musical instrument to unwind and create cherished memories around the campfire.

Hygiene Essentials

Maintain personal hygiene and cleanliness even in the wilderness by packing essential toiletries, hand sanitizer, and biodegradable soap. Keep your hands clean and germ-free, freshen up with a quick wipe-down, and practise ‘Leave No Trace’ principles to minimise your environmental impact. By prioritising hygiene and sanitation, you can stay healthy, comfortable, and refreshed throughout your camping trip, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the beauty of nature without any distractions.
