About DARCHE

Whether you plan on campervanning around Australia, looking for a romantic weekend away, exploring the vast rugged outback or backpacking on a budget, there truly is something for everyone.

Australia still is a wild place

But let's face it with all that beauty Australia still is a wild place, especially if you’re going to be exploring off-grid or out in the enormous outback or wilds up North. Having the proper camping kit is one of the most important factors when heading out into the great outdoors. Whether this is your first go at setting up a tent or your hundredth outing, it never hurts to be well prepared. If for any reason you get into trouble, you will need to have everything with you to get out and back home safely.

For this reason, we consider the Campboss range by All 4 Adventure one of the absolute best in Australia.

From Campboss Camp Cooking Bundles that include everything you need to make delicious meals under the stars. While still being wild-ready and tough enough to take the worst hits without complaining. Made of spun steel which is lightweight, durable, and heats up much faster than cast iron. You will be able to cook faster with smaller fires. 

To The CampBoss Recovery System featuring three key components that eliminate the risk associated with traditional recovery kits. Kinetic Recovery Rope: Lightweight and incorporates up to 30% stretch. Stretch of the rope stores the kinetic energy which assists in smoother recovery of bogged vehicles: decreased shock on recovery points and enables superior performance in low-traction situations. 50% kinetic advantage over a snatch strap. Winch Extension Rope: Low elongation, minimal stretch, and extremely lightweight (1.3kg); floats on water. Soft Shackles: Extremely versatile, easy to use and lightweight (360g); eliminates the risk of traditional metal shackles; floats on water. No steel components and risk elimination technology while still being lightweight and compact.

All the way through to the Campboss signature swags. These spacious swags offer plenty of headroom and convenient access. Heavy-duty materials provide complete water protection and long-lasting durability without adding surplus weight. Plus a number of market-leading innovations.

First up, it has a 60mm high density foam mattress with a full cover. This guarantees comfort and a good night’s sleep while ensuring that it packs down nice and compact.

Campboss provides all you need for the wild.

Campboss truly does provide all you need for the wild but they’re not just about the tough times. It’s also about the good times, thanks to their innovative high quality equipment. Made in Australia, for Australia, by Australians, Campboss is the ultimate go to camping brand. Every time you go out exploring, make sure you’re the Boss of the adventure with Campboss by All 4 Adventure.

The main reasons people get into camping in the first place is often one or more of the following,

  • The Freedom: Whether you’re a backpacker wanting to escape the chaos of hostel life,  a couple wanting a romantic escape or have a thirst for adventure camping offers the freedom, peace & quiet that other accommodation simply cannot provide.
  • It’s often cheaper: I guess the obvious, Australia is expensive but camping in Australia is cheap and often free. Although the equipment can cost a lot initially, in the long run your camping supplies can be used again and again saving you some serious dollars on accommodation, not to mention gaining you priceless experiences.
  • To Meet the locals: When limited by accommodation such as hostels and hotels you will find you usually end up just meeting other tourists. Where as camping in Australia is one of the best ways to meet locals in unique locations away from the tourist traps.
  • Stargazing: Away from the cities and street lights, Australia offers some of the best stargazing spots in the world.
  • The Nature: camping in Australia means you can get closer to some incredible nature. Some of the most serene spots are only accessible to campers.

Nature can be your best friend or your worst enemy. So which will it be? It all boils down to arming yourself with essential camping gear. Long gone are the days when all you needed for a camping trip was a tent and a bag of s’mores.

Today, campers want an exciting experience that entails the use of all kinds of camping equipment. As much as the gear you’ll take with you depends on your own needs, there are a few camping essentials that you don’t want to forget. They can make a world of difference to your outdoor experience. For these, we highly recommend the Campboss range by All 4 Adventure as it has true pedigree. Jase Andrews founder of All 4 Adventure is a household name in Australia, known for his daring overland adventures in the largely unexplored wilds of Australia and host of Australia’s number one four-wheel-drive and adventure show, All 4 Adventure. Driven by an unquenchable love for the undiscovered regions of Australia this modern day explorer is persistent and fearless when heading out into the wild, But during his travels he needed an adventure recovery kit that he could count on even in the worst of conditions, so he designed one and Campboss was born.

Whether you’re going to follow Jase into the wild, or perhaps you just like to be prepared for the worst, Campboss will be your best friend. With premium lightweight, heavy-duty repair kits, recovery kits, camping kits, and other equipment, Campboss has your back.

Maxtrax-brand-camping-4wd-gear

MAXTRAX the innovative, lightweight vehicle recovery device designed, engineered & manufactured in Australia. Conquer snowy, muddy, or sandy terrain.

Designed and developed by Brad McCarthy, author of Dirty Weekends "The Essential 4WD Guides", after he recognized the need for a system that makes vehicle recovery and extraction a safe, simple, one-person task and eliminates the need for any outside assistance such as towing, snatching, or winching. MAXTRAX came from Brad's idea to develop a foolproof and fail-safe quality Australian made product to make extracting or recovering a stranded or bogged vehicle a safe, simple, quick and easy procedure. Due to Brad's experience, ingenuity and "hands-on" research, the idea of an alternative and innovative vehicle recovery device that was safe, simple, quick and easy to use eventually came to fruition in the form of MAXTRAX.

A super tough nylon lightweight, yet durable product that provides superior performance with a focus on the key issues of strength, effectiveness, usability and aesthetics. MAXTRAX was trialled countless times using typical (and not so typical) bogging scenarios. MAXTRAX was launched onto the Australian 4WD accessories market in late 2005. Not long after, MAXTRAX won Australian 4WD Monthly Magazine's award for Best New Product under $500.
