Homemade wood-fired pizza while camping out bush seems too good to be true. However, Ooni has made it possible. The Ooni 3 is a portable outdoor wood-fired pizza oven that can heat to double the temperature of traditional ovens. It is also a fraction of the price and more practical than permanent wood-fired pizza ovens. It runs on energy-efficient wood pellets, which help it reach temperatures of around 500°C. The Ooni 3 weighs 13.4kg.

RRP: $438

To travel this rugged country and explore some of the best tracks, you need equipment that stands up to the task. To help with that, Dwiz has released its heavy-duty 70 Series Rear Track Correction Kit comes with strong chrome moly axles and high clearance plates. The main component of the kit is the 3020kg rated rear track housing, which is 1200kgs heavier than factory. This is thanks to its patent design of inner tubing and blocking in the housing that gives it a trussing effect, adding extra strength without sacrificing ground clearance. The kit is both ADR and SSM approved.

RRP: $3495 plus shipping/fitting

Southern Cross Fabworks understand the popularity of dual-cab utes and has created a storage kit to use the space normally left unused in the tailgate. The Southern Cross Fabworks team has created the Tailgate Storage Kit which comes with a clever lid so, when you don't need to get into the storage the back of the tailgate has a smooth back. However, inside the storage kit is plenty of space for tools, spare parts, or even a handy spot to rest a beer. The Tailgate Storage Kit is suitable for both four-cylinder and V6 models with tubs.

RRP: $595
