Gear rental and gear room

We have a range of camping gear available for hire for your own use if you are a current AUMC member. A reminder that any gear required for use on an AUMC club trip is usually paid for/included in that trip's fees. 

Please note that we do not hire out ANY climbing equipment outside of official AUMC club trips (this includes crash pads). 

Gear rental

Before hiring gear, please contact the Gear Officer at at least two days before you wish to hire it to ensure the availability of the gear and to arrange to meet with the Gear Officer or a relevant committee member to sort out a time for pick up and returning of gear. If you do not arrange this ahead of time we cannot guarantee that someone will be around to help you. Please bring cash to the gear room to pay your deposit and hire fees. Hire fees are per item per week and the deposit will be given back to you when you return the gear in good condition. Any queries or questions can be sent to

Rental fees can also be paid online, but please bring a cash deposit:
