Camp Oven Cooking Retreats

Super excited to be hosting Ranger Nick's camp oven cooking retreats - Check our facebook page for full details. 

Ranger Nick is often referred to as the Guru and Master of Keeping it Simple when it comes to camp oven cooking.

He was recently involved in successfully claiming the World Record title for the Longest Damper - 153 metres long!!

Appearing on  TV, radio and podcasts, Ranger Nick has been demonstrating the art of bush cooking professionally since 2010.

Ranger Nick will educate and entertain you with his camp oven cooking demonstrations, followed by a VIP dinner.


Keeping heritage and traditions alive, Ranger Nick will  show you how to produce a cracker of a meal with whatever is in the tucker box. He combines educational information with bush poetry, yarns and ballads. He will touch on topics such as heat control, different heat sources, cleaning and caring for the camp oven, camp oven storage and different types of camp ovens.


You will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on damper making session, where Ranger Nick will show how to bake the perfect damper.


At the end of the day, we’ll all sit down to a three course meal and enjoy each others company.
