Fridges and Coolers
No Aussie summer is complete without a few frothy refreshments to go with it! Although we may all love the scorching hot days that come with this time of year, our food and drinks certainly do not.

Pool Toys, Inflatables and Games
The beach isn't the only place to be this summer! If you're lucky enough to have a pool you can cool down in the comfort of your own backyard - no hunting for a park required! While a good ole game of Marco Polo, or Battleships and Submarines is a sure-fire way to keep boredom at bay, if you get your hands on a selection of pool inflatables you'll be able to kick the fun level up a notch or two no dramas. Water Polo to pool volleybal, pool lounges to inflatable rings, they're sure to put a smile on the little tackers dials and we're sure the young at heart will be keen to get in on the action too. Don't think pool side is the only place these babies will shine, plenty of them make ripper additions to the beach kit as well.
Inflatable Kayaks and Fishing Kayaks
Who needs a boat! This summer there's a much easier way to get out on the water that doesn't involve waiting in line at the boat ramp or fighting for a car space. The humble kayak has become a fan favourite for adventure loving Aussies and one that's much easier on the wallet than your standard water-based pride and joy. The only thing that's really been against the ole kayak is its large size, well that's all changed now with the birth of the inflatable kayak - perfect for those short on space. No matter if you're taking her for a spin to exercise, checking out the local waterways, or throwing the fishing rods on board in search of a fresh feed, an inflatable kayak can do it all! They've been designed with ease of use in mind, offering a lightweight, relatively stable, and not to mention super-compact form of watercraft - What more could you ask for!
These things are everywhere this time of year, and it's easy to see why! There really is no better way to make the most of an Aussie summer's day than with the help of a tow tube. Tearing around your local estuary or dam with a bunch of mates, a few frothies, and you can't really forget a boat now can you. It's something the whole family can enjoy, but if you're someone who loves a bit of fast paced, foot to floor fun this'll be right up your alley. Tow tubes come in a huge range of shapes and sizes, so no matter the size of your fam bam you'll be sweet. Constructed from durable materials with quality components - get ready for a good time!
