About Us

Australia’s Camping Quartermaster was established in 1988 by retired ADF member John Poiner who spent 20 years in the Army firstly in The Royal Australian Engineers (RAE) and then in The Royal Australian Ordnance Corps (RAOC). The business has been serving members of the Australian Defence force from all over the country since its inception.
