GO CAMPING AND OVERLANDING ADVENTURE STAGE
Aaron Newman – Adventurer, Gear Expert, Owner of Camping & Overlanding – has more than 25 years personal experience in hiking, overlanding and camping.
Over the years he has taken the time to experiment with different gear in order to understand what to take to get the most out of each adventure, and now he carries a range of quality products designed for camping and hiking.
Aaron knows that products that take up less space and weigh less are great for when considering GVMs of caravans and vehicles; as well as for adventure camping when you are carrying gear on a bike or on your back. This is why Go Camping and Overlanding offers products ideal for overland touring in Australia, and importantly take into account the benefit of weight and space.
Aaron will head up the NEW Go Camping and Overlanding Adventure Stage at the Perth 4WD and Adventure Show, and has arranged speakers who can give interesting and relevant information on camping, hiking and overlanding, plus what gear to take, and how to enjoy the Australian bush without leaving a trace.
