Bev's Tramping Gear Hire, based in Te Anau, is the place to hire all your tramping/hiking and camping equipment. We can help you out with packs and sleeping bags if you are walking the Milford Track for the first time, or if you need to hire ice axe and crampons for big winter missions.
We strongly recommend that you book ahead to hire hiking equipment for your trip into Fiordland. Booking is essential for all large orders over the NZ summer (between November and March).To book simply:
- Send an email containing a list of what you require (including your sizes) to Bev who will check availability. You can also save time by letting us know your preferred payment method.
- Pay the deposit of $50NZD per person by:

If you happen to live in Te Anau, just pop over with cash and we will get you all sorted out!
- Bev will check our stock and send you an invoice for the gear deposit. Once we have received your payment we will send you a confirmation that we have reserved the equipment for you!
How it works
We can send gear to anywhere in Otago or Southland, but prefer pickups from our shop in Te Anau to ensure proper fitting.
You can take gear away and arrange for it to be sent back to our shop.
We can store your vehicle or gear at no additional cost when we have enough space.
On site cash is the only method of payment, we don't have an eftpos machine.
When hiring equipment we require a deposit such as a passport or a credit card imprint.
Please decide carefully before you book. There are no refunds, unless DOC closes the track. If DOC closes the track there will be a refund less your deposit paid.
Bev and the crew in Te Anau have extensive tramping experience, having tramped all around New Zealand and especially within Fiordland for decades. Feel free to come in and have a chat when planning your next big trip. We have a small post on a few local tracks here including some inside info on New Zealand's Great Walks. You are invited to visit Destination Fiordland for all your information on Fiordland and Te Anau. For more information on tramping in New Zealand see tramper or D.O.C
