About Us

Desert Dwellers has been compared to an Aladdin's cave of camping equipment by customers who were amazed at the sheer range of stock available. Whether it is wheel chocks, tent pegs or gas stoves you want, will find them and much, much more at the store in Elder Street, Alice Springs.

Desert Dwellers is owned and run by John Herlaar, a long time resident of Alice Springs. He saw there was a need for a quality camping store, with excellent customer service in the Red Centre that could meet almost any camping need and in 2001, he set up Desert Dwellers. His aim is to make everyone a happy camper.

Come and see for yourself - visit the store in Elder Street, not far from the Stuart Highway, where we have plenty of parking for cars, combis, caravans and even large mobile homes! There is a map on the contact page.
