Event Sponsors – 2021/2022 Corroboree
Thank you to CAOS for your support for the 4WD QLD Corroboree as a Major Event Partner.
CAOS started early 2020 (just before COVID – great timing guys!) when long time workmates and friends Greg Bloom, Peter Ellemor and Wes Funk decided to open a small 4X4 and camping shop; we had already been selling a range of products including 4X4 gear for many years and knew we could offer quality products at fair prices.
The name CAOS came from Anne, Greg’s wife and it symbolized for us all the one thing we all wanted to avoid in our life – “CHAOS” – but knew if we got stuck in mud or up to our axles in the sand with the tide coming in, we have to be ready for CHAOS.
Whether you’re buying your first 4X4, or already have a truck that puts a grin on your mug, we’re here to help.
The origins of ARB go back to 1975, when company founder, Tony Brown, was inspired by a 4WDing trip through the top end of Australia.
Back then, 4WDers relied on homemade or ill-fitting equipment that was not designed for extensive Outback expeditions. Endless corrugated roads, extreme temperatures, and the heavy loads carried by Australian travellers were tremendously punishing on vehicles that regularly tackled these kinds of conditions. Tony’s many years spent toiling on his Series 1 Land Rover proved extremely beneficial to others in the top end during his travels. Damaged bull bars and broken roof racks ensured Tony’s expertise was regularly called upon, and through this experience an idea was born – well engineered, durable equipment that would meet the vigorous demands of 4WD owners.
Upon his return to Melbourne, Tony put theory into practise, and began working in the family garage to address some of the product deficiencies he’d encountered on his trip. It was exactly what Australian 4WDers had been waiting for, and ARB, the initials of Anthony Ronald Brown, was founded. Today, ARB is Australia’s largest manufacturer and distributor of 4×4 accessories.
Tentworld has been trading since 1968 supplying Australians with great value camping equipment and hiking gear along with quality service. We are one of Australia’s oldest online camping stores, having operated since 2003 we are experienced at getting your camping gear shipped safely and on time.
