Where can I get a Volcano Bush Kelly Dingo?

Known by various different names, depending on the manufacturer, but essentially the same thing, is the humble bush kettle.

Searching this forum and many websites, I am convinced this is a valuable piece of equipment to add to the larder for a quick road side cuppa or some 2 minute noodles.

By all accounts and purposes, the stainless steel versions are the better ones, BUT....where do I get one from? I'm in Adelaide and Rays, BCF, and Christies don't stock them. I can get one from Ireland (via ebay) but I'd prefer to spend my money in Australia.

Can anyone recommend someone in Australia who stocks these? Website would be great, phone number will do.

Alternatively...anyone have one they don't use and want to get rid of?

Cheers...Fab.

There are 2 4wd shops near each other on sth rd, near hardly normals factory outlet just sth of the road that goes past the mile end bunnings.

I think one is Alltrac, and the other is opposite lock or something like that.
Well the one near altrac has stainless ecobillys, or bush kettles depending on what you call them, very similar to the ones made by national geographic.

Hope that helps.

Fab, are you talking about this critter? If so, I don't believe they're made anymore so looking out on ebay might be the way to go. A mate just recently picked one up in an op shop because they didn't know what it was.

National Geographic shops used to sell a similiar one, don't know if they still do.

We use the Eco Instant Billy - 1.5 litres from Hillbilly and it works a treat.

Made out of stainless steel, takes about 5 minutes to boil 1.5Lt of water.

They use to be made in Berri in SA but Hillbilly bought them.

Gooday,
We use Thermette or Picnic kettle as it is known in Oz
Had my first one given to me in 1964 when working with a Kiwi in The Kimberleys who was going overseas, it was actually a Malleys Picnic Kettle.
Got burgled in 2002 and it went with a lot of other stuff. Finally found a new one only in Copper in 2004," boy"! isn't it efficient. From memory it holds 2 litres and has the bonus you can cook on top of the Flu.
Not sure there are many selling them, but if you Google Thermette, you will find they are made in NZ and could get one from there without much fuss. Marvellous piece of gear. Only need twigs & leaves to boil 2 litres in about 3 minutes flat.
Cheers,
Boroma604.

Try Discount Camping on Main North Rd Pooraka, friendly service and are listed as stockists of the billy your after. Your also supporting a family business rather than a faceless corporate company.
