About Us

Outdoor Link is an Australian owned business, established in 2006. We are a service-oriented supplier of quality outdoor, adventure and safety equipment to Outdoor Education Centres, schools, clubs, and other organisations.

As a consultancy, our strength is in researching all the products that are available, in order to help you find the right equipment for your specific end-use. The outdoor gear industry is always changing – new technologies, faster, lighter, stronger and so on. We keep our finger on the pulse so you don’t have to.

As an industry supplier, our aim is to provide all the information you need to make an informed decision about equipment purchases. With years of adventuring, guiding, and outdoor education under our belts, we are focused on providing you with the right solution to your equipment needs.

By delivering to you directly from our wholesalers, we minimise our margins and pass those savings directly on to you. Because we have access to all of the major brands, you can be sure you will receive the right gear for you, not just whatever is on the shelves.

Due to the vast range of products at our disposal, our website only displays a core selection. If you don’t see exactly what you are looking for, please contact us for assistance.

Contact us today to discuss your equipment requirements, big or small. We will return a comprehensive quote to you as soon as possible. We can also provide made to measure high ropes equipment – K strops and lanyards .

Here’s a brief introduction to who we are.

Peter McGrath

For the past 14 years Pete’s life has revolved around guiding and adventuring in the outdoors. Pete has enjoyed the outdoors everywhere from guiding school groups through the cave systems, gorges and rapids of the Ardeche River in Southern France to teaching snowboarding in Saas Fee, Switzerland.

Closer to home, Pete jumps at any opportunity to be out and about, from leading multi-pitch climbs in the Glass House Mountains to guiding sea kayaking expeditions in the Whitsundays. What a way to make a living!

As a qualified guide, Pete continues to work in the outdoor education industry, on a casual basis, assisting local schools in providing high quality outdoor education experiences for their students.

If Pete doesn’t answer his phone it is probably because he is out and about instructing, so please send an email and he’ll get back to you ASAP. It’s industry know how that makes it easy for us to keep our finger on the pulse!


Lesley Hughes

An avid adventurer, Lesley’s free time has always involved getting outdoors whether it be hiking, rock climbing, paddling or nature photography.

After catching the ‘travel bug’ in 2008, Lesley found herself rock climbing in Arco, Italy, snow camping on glaciers in France and hiking ridgelines in Austria. Where next?!

With her passion for the outdoors it wasn’t a surprise that Lesley traded the ‘traditional’ classroom for an outdoor education centre, where her classroom is now the great outdoors. She enjoys the challenge of teaching climbing, canoeing, hiking and navigating whilst leading students through expeditions.

When you’re out and about every week – rain, hail or shine – you quickly learn to appreciate the value of quality gear!
