A gorgeous sustainable camping mat with an authentic Aboriginal Australian design
With large dimensions, this affordable camping mat is incredibly popular for use alongside caravans and underneath gazebos. The 'Gum Leaves & Waterholes' mat is the perfect portable outdoor living space wherever you choose to stop. Our large caravan mats offer you waterproof campsite flooring on grass, sand and soil. These affordable camping mats make a practical boundary between creepy crawlies, little stones and sticks that may hurt exposed feet, yet sufficiently enable air to flow through the mat to help safeguard the ground underneath.
Like all our outdoor rugs, the 'Gum Leaves & Waterholes' mat is easy to clean and care for. Made from recycled plastics, dirt, sand or food spills can be hosed away with ease and folded or rolled up for storage or transportation. For your convenience, these camping mats include 6 eyelets for tie down purposes. Each mat comes in a sturdy recycled polyester carry bag that zips closed with a handy side silver insulated pocket and strong carry straps.
Indigenous artist, Caitlin Trindall designed this artwork with inspiration from her favourite camping spot in Burraga Dam, NSW where she visits with loved ones. Caitlin believes there is no better feeling than sinking your bare feet into the sand, dipping into the fresh water dam, and closing your eyes to listen to the sound of rustling gum leaves in the breeze. Burraga Dam is a place where Caitlin goes to feel refreshed, as the peaceful surroundings leave her feeling relaxed and free.
The design of this mat includes iconic features of Burraga Dam, with a pattern of gum leaves and waterholes that will leave you feeling connected to nature.
Whilst you're here gearing up for your outdoor caravanning adventure, how about a doormat to keep the outdoors outside (the turf ones work extra well!). Our portable picnic tables are also a great addition to any setup. You can use them for so many things; They provide a flat usable surface anywhere you might need it - like somewhere to pop your marshmallows by the campfire, or for cheese and wine night with your new campsite friends?
