Northern Tide

I’d love to introduce myself, I’m Danielle the owner of Northern Tide Apparel. A female fishing and outdoor apparel range specialising in the first designed Fishing Dress.

Northern Tide originated in 2020 and evolved to address the imbalance of available (and well fitting) fishing and outdoor apparel for women. ‘With the innovation of the Fishing Dress, we bring something truly unique to the mix

We have two main products we are really excited about the ‘Jersey Dress’ and the ‘Shirt Dress’. These dresses really provided women with options, to have a feminine approach to fishing and outdoor sun protection as we believe ‘strength and femininity are not mutely exclusive’ .  

Northern Tide Apparel dresses are UPF50+ (ARPANSA certified), available in two lengths and range from 18 months to size 3XL. Our dresses are extremely versatile, we find these are used for boating, camping and general sun protection. We are stocked Australia wide with our 27th stockist recently jumping onboard. 

At Northern Tide Apparel our mission is to encourage, support and inspire women. We embrace all body sizes and aim to empower women to look and feel good whilst doing the outdoor activity they love.
We are committed to delivering high quality fabrics and work hard to ensure our designs are created with the female form in mind.  We are proudly an Australian, female owned and operated business.

I really look forward to meeting you at the event, please pop on by and say hello.

Icey Tek’s New Products

Cooler Bags

We have added 2 new sizes of Soft Cooler Bags, the 12 and 20. The all-new Soft Cooler, is made from tough TPU material. Inner lining is Super Smooth formed TPU for easy cleaning. Stock is due to arrive in March. 

For indent Orders of 10 or more , we can include a 940ml stainless steel Vacuum Insulated Drink Bottle AND a 590ml Vacuum Insulated Tumbler with every Soft Cooler. Over $100 worth RRP value included.

These are a high quality marine grade zipper with no metal components to corrode, for years of trouble free use.

Bottle opener included, attached to 1 end handle.

A handle on each end, for lifting in and out of carts, boats or storage.

A detachable shoulder strap, which can also be shortened to use as a carry handle.

Up to 40mm thick insulation in the lid and 20mm on the side and base.

Super Bags

Also, due to the popularity of our Super Bag 150, we have added a smaller size Super Bag 110.

This fish and game bag is 110cm, 40cm high and 20cm wide at the base.

It uses the same high-end materials and components. Designed to for superior cold retention and durability, for the most demanding users.

The Super Bag 110, is the toughest fish and game storage bag we have made.

This bag has an airtight and watertight zipper to help prevent thermal loss. The insulation is 20mm thick, closed cell foam.

The outer fabric layer is the extremely durable Thermoplastic Polyurethane. The inside skin is equally as tough, but with a super smooth finish to make cleaning easy.

Comes with a single drain plug in one end, to drain excess water or clean out.

Fully sealed and welded construction. 


110cm Long

20cm Wide (at the base)

40cm High

We have engineered the handles to be extremely durable. However, we recommend supporting the bottom of the bag when lifting the bag, when it is filled with over 30kg of contents. Lifting this bag while full, could cause damage to the bag internal lining from fish spines and teeth or to the handles from excessive weight.

While we made this as tough as practically possible, in case of punctures, we recommend a product called Tear Aid to patch and repair.

Oztent Invites you to come and join us at the Australian Adventure Expo…

We will feature a range of exciting new products that push into new avenues of business for OZTENT and will provide you with new opportunities and exciting offerings for your customers.

Be sure to come say hello and take a look at our new Storage and Organisation Collection as well as a few more exciting products we have up our sleeve. 

At OZTENT we got sick of messy campsites, disorganised vehicles and having the things you need out of reach. So, we created a collection of innovative bags and storage products designed to make camping, 4WDing and adventuring generally a neater more organised experience. As you’d expect from us, all bags and storage items are well thought through, easy to use and provide solutions to everyday problems. 

We love ‘sweating over the small stuff’. Allowing you to have bigger, better and even more enjoyable adventures- that’s what an OZTENT product is all about. 

We look forward to seeing you there!

Petzl’s 2023 Lighting Collection

Day or night, adventure doesn’t wait. Exploring nature through different recreational activities strengthens our communities. At Petzl, we want to help you make the most of it. So that you can discover, learn, go farther, have fun, and (above all) share the experience with a friend.

In 2023, our new lighting collection will carry you more confidently into the night than ever before! Our new generation of headlamps were made to adapt better and better to your every need. 

The star of the new line-up is a trail runner’s dream: The new NAO® RL takes a comfortable lead as the most powerful lamp in the collection, pumping out up to 1500 lumens and featuring REACTIVE LIGHTING® technology, which instantly and automatically adjusts the lamp’s brightness. The first time you’ll get to see a NAO® RL will be at Australian Adventure Expo 2023, on the Spelean Stand.

This isn’t the only product update! This year the ACTIK® CORE, ACTIK®, TIKKA® CORE, TIKKA®, and TIKKINA® headlamps received redesigns, complete with performance updates (including increased lumens), new fresh colours, and new accessories. These are available now but will also be available to see at Australian Adventure Expo 2023. All models are now part of Hybrid Concept® meaning they are also compatible with the CORE rechargeable battery and the headlamp will automatically detect the energy source and adjust the lighting performance.

Petzl Lights are distributed in Australia by Spelean Pty Ltd.
