Hiking Equipment


We have chosen a range of high-quality outdoor equipment for our guided tour clients, and the same equipment is available for independent bushwalkers to hire.

Tasmanian Wilderness Experiences Hire Equipment - Graham McLean testing hiking equipment

Drawing on our experience hiking in Tasmania and overseas, our selection criteria included comfort, ease of use, suitability, durability, light-weight and compactness. We have personally tested all items, and confirm that our choices performed exceptionally well under extreme conditions our clients would not experience. Where possible, we have purchased Australian designed and manufactured equipment, because we believe this is equal to any available worldwide, and we also believe in supporting our own country’s products. We describe the equipment in the following list:
