The Wilderness Shop began as an independent outdoor shop in 1980. Originally located in Carrington Street Box Hill, The Wilderness Shop soon outgrew those premises and moved to their current location on Whitehorse Road in Box Hill in 1995. Needless to say, plenty has changed over the preceding three decades. Equipment has definitely  become lighter and more specialised.

Three decades of outdoor retailing experience has taught us that customers want real choice when it comes to their equipment and clothing. Everyone seems to be looking for something different, which is the reason why The Wilderness Shop stocks a wide range of products in each major line. For example we stock over 30 different tents and shelters, over 25 rain jackets, around 40 different shoes and boots and countless hundreds of rockclimbing gadgets.

As an independent store, The Wilderness Shop is able to hand pick the stock which we sell from manufacturers from around the world. What’s more the staff at The Wilderness Shop are keen outdoors people, and the chances are that one of the staff members has personally used almost every item in the store. This means that we can offer you real-life experience and advise.
