Maclean Outdoors is a camping and outdoors store specializing in Hobie kayaks, kayaking and watersport accessories. Based in the scenic township of Maclean situated on the banks of the mighty Clarence river Nth NSW, we are ideally positioned within range of some of the best kayaking and camping destinations in Australia. Centrally located to the beautiful beaches of Iluka, Yamba, Angourie and Brooms Head all within 30 minutes drive, when we're not working at the shop we can often be found at camp or on the water in any one of the fantastic locations from Sandon to Woody Head. Nearby towns include Grafton, Coffs Harbour, Ballina, Lismore, and Byron Bay. Maclean Outdoors is positioned in the CBD, only 80 metres from the public boat ramp where we offer on-water Hobie kayak demonstrations by appointment.
We have a genuine affinity with Hobie Kayaks and everything to do with them, offering traditional recreational kayaks as well as the highly popular pedal (and or sail) powered Mirage kayaks, featuring Hobie's patented Mirage Drive. Solo and tandem models are available in both styles. We carry every kayak model in Hobie's fleet in every available colour.
To compliment our range of kayaks we also carry a full range of kayaking accessories and specialize in kayak fishing, kayak camping and kayak sailing. Not only have we helped outfit some of Australia's best known kayak fishos and adventurers, we've also been behind some major kayaking expeditions, including Dave Rastovich's (now world famous) Australian East Coast Transparent Sea expedition, as well as the numerous 'Yakass' kayak fishing expeditions.
We also carry a large range of camping equipment, from tents, swags, shelters, gazebos and sleeping bags to pegs, poles, lighting, cooling and cooking equipment. Included within our range are many well known brands such as Primus, Outdoor Connection, Sea to Summit, Black Wolf, Waeco, Mountain Safety Research, Petzl and Black Diamond. We cater to various needs and budgets, from holiday makers passing through to those who are gearing up to tour around Australia. If you don't find what you're looking for on our website that doesn't mean we don't have it in stock, or can't get it at a moment's notice.
To compliment our range of camping and kayaking gear, we also stock a sizable range of boating bits and chandlery equipment and also have a separate online shop set up with BLA, which makes their entire rnge of boating and hardware equipment available to you. Whatever your boating-bit needs are, the chances are high that we can help you!
Among everything else we probably should mention here on our front page, we stock a large range of parts and accessories for camping stoves, BBQs and other gas equipment, and yes, we also handle Swap-and-Go gas bottle exchanges and even better, fill up gas bottles on the spot!
