Outdoor Connection

www.outdoorconnection.com.au
We opened our doors in 1993 and being a local family business is something that I am very proud of.

One of the first suppliers that Mum & Dad brought in to our business all those years ago (& still with us) was a brand called the Outdoor Connection. The Outdoor Connection is now by far our largest supplier & their gear is absolutely amazing. Quality that you can see, feel and trust, designed in Australia to suit our Australian conditions.  The owner of the Outdoor Connection Bill McCormack, has something in common with Mum & Dad. He was a wheat farmer. He left the farm from out west of Dalby & got into camping equipment. Being a farmer Bill is exceptionally mechanical & he loves camping. This is part of the hidden driving success that shows through in to his product. One last thing about Bill & the Outdoor Connection is the fact he is a QLD family owned & operated family business. As you all know this is something I am insatiably passionate about like I can’t explain. Bill now resides here on the Sunshine Coast (Business is Brisbane based) & his product fits unbelievably well with the Camping Country Australia culture.

The New Camping Country Australia Store

The New Camping Country Australia Store

As the saying goes Rome wasn’t built in a day. We still have plenty to do but that’s OK, it will be an evolving process that is massaged and made right over the coming month or two with a bit of elbow grease, some late nights, quite a few Nanna naps and some wonderful creativity from many people around us. As a family, we definitely have something quite special to show you.
