Completing the Duke of Ed is truly an exciting time for students. We're here to make that easier! We can help with high quality camping and hiking equipment available for hire or sale at affordable rates. We do both bulk hire/sales to schools, or directly to individuals. Our aim is to make your job as coordinator easier, and help your school’s expedition run smoothly.
how it works
We will liaise with the school about what gear you need
The school can either book the gear as a bulk order, or we can facilitate parents booking the gear individually either through an order list or through our website
If parents are booking through our website, we will create a booking portal specific to the school so that parents know they are booking the the correct gear at the correct price!
We will then deliver the gear to the location required
We will set up and pack up the gear for you so you don't need to worry about it!
All team members at Wallaroo having a Working with Children Check
What we offer
A range of quality outdoor gear
Set-up and pack-up service
Communal facilities (showers and toilets)
THE SORT OF EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE FOR HIRE INCLUDES:
Tents (ranging from 2 person to 12 person)
Hiking gear including packs and boots
Various items for the overall activity, like iceboxes, gazebos etc.
We also offer these items and many more for sale at great prices, should your families prefer to purchase them.
For some schools we have created a gear hire/purchase list for parents to complete and submit, either back to the school or directly to us. The other option is for parents to place their orders directly through our website. We can work with whatever arrangement will work best for your school and activity.
Student buy night
An additional service we offer is to run a buy night for students and parents, at which we offer expert advice and students can be fitted for the items and clothing they need. These can then be ordered and delivered well prior to your packing day and departure. Such a night enables us to offer fantastic pricing based on bulk purchases – and we pass the savings on to you!
Set up and Pack up Service
We deliver gear to the location of the event and can have it fully set up before the students arrive. We can also pack up all the gear, so you don't have to worry about a thing!
We offer site management by having a Wallaroo employee on site at all times. They will be contactable by phone in case anything goes awry (such as weather or damage to a tent etc.) and they will make sure that the campsite is kept clean. All Wallaroo employees have a Working with Children Check.
We offer portable toilets and showers. These are kept well maintained and clean for attendees.
We can set up communal areas for students and teachers. We have many different sized shelters available. In these shelters there are tables and chairs for students and teachers to sit around and eat together. There is also potential for us to include hot water, a microwave, a fridge, power for charging phones, and some board and card games.
We offer a food service that is customisable for your event. We can provide breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Parents can pre-book the meal in advance through our online booking portal. An example of a food service we have provided recently is a buffet breakfast which included egg & bacon rolls, pancakes, toast, cereal, seasonal fruits and coffee.
