I bought a Coleman table early this year - (75 x 60 x 6 cm folded) it folds out to double its size (150 x 60 cm) - made of 'alloy' so it is strong and light.
Wasn't cheap, but I needed to replace the old one I had used for 20 years !
Chairs - there are so many to choose from - personal choice!Subaru Forester
size isn't everything !

Zedjay,

There are so many tables and chairs out there the choice is mind boggling. My advice is don't skimp on $. Nothing worse than a flimsy, wobbly table when camping. Buy a decent one with a solid top and aluminium protection strip around the edge. Re chairs...just remember it can be awfully cold when camping sometimes and sitting around a campfire keeps you warm in front but cold on your back. For this reason, we use high back chairs for a bit of extra weather protection not to mention comfort. Our chairs also have the adjustable back which is fantastic for being able to lie back or sit up depending on the moment.

Hope this helps.

Visit a few camping stores and choose something that suits you. What I like, you may detest. There's a large range available. Also consider space, packability, cleanability etc. Those table and chair combinations are OK for eating at but not practical around a camp fire. Better to get separate units.

We bought cheap chairs and table, and they lasted one trip before breaking.

Then shelled out for some good ones, and they are soooo cumfy and durable.

Find something you are comfortable in, then by the best you can afford ;-)

If you're in Melbourne, check the guys out at Go Camping and Outdoors.

http://www.gooutdoors.com.au/

They are great guys, and have good quality stuff at great prices.

2 years after buying our stuff, I went in there to ask about some niggly problems I was having with some stuff we bought from them, he remembered my name, and said, "sure bring it in" we'll fix it".

Great Service!

I bought a couple of bag chairs two years ago, don't know what make, for around $30 each discounted and they seem to be holding up well. I have a 15 year old Coleman camping table but it has become too small for our needs so at last years Adelaide 4x4 Show we bought an aluminium roll up table and it is just the bees knees. Paid $79 for it(Show Special). Very happy with both items.
Cheers

We purchased a combination table/4 seater from one of the chain stores (Target/Kmart) about 10 years ago and it is still going strong. Seats fold up into the table top and looks like and about the size of a guitar case. Cost about $50/60 and easy to replace. If you intent to store it in a home made storage system, get something that will fit in the space without having to modify the system. Can be purchased all over Aust. Used it last weekend on a trip to Ninghan Station, WA and had a ball.
