Before.

Graham Pryde’s, the owner of Camping Adventures, love for retail and camping goes back to his childhood.

HIs parents owned a Milkbar, which they sold when Graham was 4 years old. They used that money to travel around Australia in a caravan for 6 months, even though it was supposed to be a full year. Family brought them back earlier than planned. The Prydes lived in that caravan for a couple of years, and they bought a new business. This time they owned a news agency. When Graham got out of college, he started working in the corporate world in IT, but always held on to the dream of owning his own retail business one day.

In 2002, Graham and his own family had their first big camper trailer trip. They fell in love with the outdoor living style and the freedom it provided. This put 2 and 2 together for Graham and the idea of Camping Adventures started to form. He loved camper trailers, he loved Australian made and quality products, and he loved spending this quality time with his family. Combine that with the dream of opening a retail store and the idea was born. With the help of a friend in the IT-business, and many other mentors along the way, Graham opened the doors to his dream in 2015.
