Customer Reviews about Bairnsdale Camping & Outdoors

Article Publisher

Proprietors David Neale and Wendy Brownrigg first opened Bairnsdale Camping & Outdoors in 1996. Since there was already a franchised disposals store in town, they decided to widen the marketplace and source stock of a higher quality, a more specialised nature and wherever possible Australian made. This business policy still exists today.

You can find Bairnsdale Camping & Outdoors at 220 Main Street in Bairnsdale, Victoria. We are just a few doors down from McDonalds. Call in and discover a huge range of camping and outdoor products rarely seen outside of large metropolitan areas. We stock everything you will need to best enjoy your camping and outdoor adventures, holidays and leisure time in the beautiful East Gippsland area.

Customer satisfaction is our primary focus. What you think about our product range and customer service is very important to us. Your feedback is always welcome and most helpful. Read the comments our customer's have submitted to date.

Thank you for your help and service first class

Thanks Ken for your positive review and supporting our business. The Bushman 4 cuppa kettles are a great product - but more importantly they are locally made in our region.

Found hard to find jets !

- 14th August 2017

Have had a Primus gas stove since I inherited it from my parents . It must be 50 years old . What a pleasure to find a source of the correct replacement jets for it . Ordered them on Thursday , Received them on Monday . What excellent service . In a world of throw away consumer goods , great to be able to keep a good stove going .

BCO response:
Thanks Dave for your review. We hope that you get many more years out of your family treasure. Happy cooking.

Primus replacement gas jet

- 20th March 2017

I have a 30 year old plus primus president gas cooker which I couldn't find a jet for at all the major camp shops like BCF, Anaconda and others in Queensland. I stumbled across Bairnsdale Camping and Outdoors on google and made contact with David via email. After David replied I made contact via phone and told me he thought he had the jet required and sent it to me via post. I put the jet in and the stove works like a charm. Thanks for the great service. Highly recommended.

Thanks Anthony. It is great to hear that the gas jets works as we expected it to. We appreciate your support of our family business.

Excellent advice choosing a toilet

- 16th December 2016

It turns out not all toilets are created equally. Fortunately, David at Bairnsdale Camping could point me to the Cam-Poe galvanised steel toilet which suits our needs for a sturdy, semi-permanent bush toilet and seat that will be used with a long drop earth closet. This will last a long, long time.

The Cam-Poe is a rarity now. It is NOT one of the many varieties of portable and lightweight ones requiring plastic bags and chemicals to work.

Thanks for your geat advice, Dave.

Response from BCO - Thanks Stephen for your great review. It was a pleasure to give you good advise. David.

Stove Replacement Knobs

- 25th October 2016

I needed replacement knobs for my Jackeroo 1095 stove. Dave and Wendy could not have been more helpful. They asked a few questions, we agreed on a replacement which I received in a few days, they work perfectly. Thoroughly recommend them.

Response from BCO: Thanks Stuart, we are pleased that you received the stove knobs.

A Happy Shop

- 23rd February 2016

A happy shop that were happy to make a sale and help us find what we needed. With a lot of camping competition in town opposite the highway, they try to do their best with customer service.

Response by Wendy Brownrigg, Bairnsdale Camping and Outdoors : Thank you very much for your very favorable review. We take pride in providing our customers with correct information on products and also giving excellent customer service. We like to provide the same level of service to our customers, as we would like to receive. Next time you are in the shop, please introduce yourself as we would like to personally thank you.

Excellent knowledge

- 22nd February 2016

David and Wendy have excellent knowledge and if it's not in the store, most likely they can source it for you. 10/10 for service and expertise.

Reply by BCO: Thanks Pao for your lovely comments. Yes, where possible we do try to source stock or information for our clients.

Expertly run by experts

- 14th February 2016

What a pleasant change to find a locally owned store with staff who actually know what they are talking about and sell you the right product for your specific needs. A very pleasant change from the mass marketing of many. Great service and just as good value as the bigger stores who claim unsuccessfully to be the best around. Here you get it right first time with the help of the staff. The service and knowledge is free.

What they don't know about camping isn't worth knowing

- 30th December 2015

Wendy and David were able to assist with my questions regarding purchasing a top quality Swag. The service didn't just stop at the selection point but they gave advice about ensuring the long term care, treatment and safe storage.

Response by Wendy Brownrigg : Thank you for your positive response. We hope that you are still enjoying the use of your swag. Thank you for supporting our family run business.
