Camping gear essentials  

Did you know that there is an entire day dedicated to sleeping outdoors? The 8th of August is Global Sleep Under the Stars Night, so in celebration, we have put together a list of camping gear essentials you need to get started.  

Whether you’re a seasoned camper or a first-timer with a brand-new tent, this list will help make sure you have everything you need for a great trip.  

Camp cooking essentials 

Once your tent is arranged and ready, food becomes the priority. After all, rustic cooking is an essential part of any camping experience. Essential cooking items include a camping stove with extra fuel, water storage, a pot and pan, utensils and knives, basic cutlery and crockery, dish soap, a sponge, dish towels and trash bags. Don’t forget to pack the actual food! 

The bed items 

A comfortable sleeping setup is essential for getting a good night’s sleep in the great outdoors. Ensure that you pack a temperature-appropriate sleeping bag, a pillow and an extra blanket for chilly nights. An air mattress or sleeper cot is always a good choice for extra comfort. 


While many campers opt to leave all electronics at home for the ultimate off-grid experience, a headlamp or flashlight, camp lantern, cellphone, and a portable charger are always welcome. At the very least, a headlamp, flashlight and camp lantern are essential for safety.  

Comfortable extras 

Just because you’re spending time in the great outdoors does not mean you have to sacrifice all comfort. Don’t forget to include a table and camp chairs, sunshade, extra blankets, perhaps a hammock, and camping games or books to help you relax. 

Miscellaneous items 

Now that your tent, cooking equipment and comfortable extras are taken care of, don’t forget about packing sunscreen, bug repellent, a first-aid kit, and a fire extinguisher along with your fishing or biking gear. 

When you get back from your outdoor adventure, don’t place your pricey camp gear in your dusty garage.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
