It is always good to get a good price and good service from places that you buy and I was wondering if people could list their favorite internet stores from Australia or overseas. Particularly I would be interested in stores with camping/outdoors/fishing/travel etc that we in Australia can purchase from and be confident that the stuff will arrive.

I will kick it off - www.exploroz.com

I am a fan of the E-Bay, but if you have a tender centre near by get there. You can see what you are bidding on. I just scorred a good coleman fuel lantern with carry case (large one) for $22. I paid close to $100 for my small one, new two years ago. They usually have camping gear. They are also on the net at www.tendernet.com.au .

Your rig doesn't look like you sre struggling. How good is that little camper, worth the $40.000 or what ever?

I am struggling.......to open the tendernet site.

Camper is very good and worth the "what ever" I paid for it. If you sent me $40000 though you can have it and I will get a new one and spend the change on a boat!

Have to agree with the Prestige recommendation. Only used once, but good prices and items delivered promptly.

Also find good prices for some camping items at
http://www.grangerscampingworld.com.au/
Haven't bought off their website, but the same prices available in-store.

For general fishing stuff I look out for the 15-25% discounts at Kmart for their fishing gear, and Ray's Outdoor sometimes has up to 20-25% too. Don't expect any decent advice from the Kmart staff though, they have no idea about the stuff they're selling. Both advertise the specials on their websites.
