Aussie Road Trip Essentials

Must-haves for when you’re on the move this Easter

Australians love a road trip and the Easter break is the perfect time for a few days away. Whether you’re planning time out in the great outdoors, scenic drives through the countryside or a caravanning and camping long weekend, there’s some road trip essentials that will take your getaway to the next level.

Fire Up the BBQ!

No outdoors getaway experience is complete without a barbecue! The Char-Griller Akorn Junior Kamado Charcoal BBQ (RRP $269) offers a portable and compact set up for all your cooking needs. Made from heavy steel to ensure heat retention, this griller is perfect for smoking meat, vegetables or grilling kebab skewers. The smaller size won’t disappoint, with all the features needed to regulate temperature, including dual dampers, a temperature gauge and triple wall insulation.

Get in the Zen Zone

Perfect for those who like to camp, hike or kick up their feet while enjoying the great outdoors. The Two Trees Single Nylon Hammock (RRP $31.98) is lightweight, strong and quick drying. Its compact size makes it easy to take with you anywhere and give yourself that little bit of extra comfort while enjoying outdoor activities.

Mosquitoes Be Gone

Nothing ruins a peaceful night by the campfire quite like mosquitoes. The Thermacell Backpacker Repeller (RRP $64.95) is the tool for the job, keeping pesky mozzies at bay by creating a 21m2 zone of protection so you can enjoy your travels in peace. Light weight, portable and easy to use the Backpack Repeller can be taken virtually anywhere. Utilising the same camping gas canisters that backpackers and campers already have in their bag, this compact repeller is an essential piece of gear.

Don’t Let A Flat Battery Ruin Your Day

If you’re planning a road or camping trip, the Stanley Lithium Battery Booster (RRP $149.00) is an essential piece of equipment. This battery booster safely jump starts a flat car battery within seconds, so you will never be stranded on the side of the road again. The Stanley Booster also comes with two USB outlets that can be used to charge mobile devices, along with an LED torch to light your way in the dark.

Stay Safe

Keep your personal belongings safe and secure while you are on the go with the Master Lock 1.8m x 8mm Combination Bike Lock (RRP $21.55). It’s ideal for securing mountain bikes, scooters, jetskis, surfboards and smaller possessions.There’s no keys to lose, and it’s easy to set and reset your own 4-digit combination. The self-coiling steel cable provides strength and flexibility, while allowing for ease of use for many different storage types.
