BCF Easter Sale
Along with the Australia Day holiday in January, Easter is a massively popular time for camping in Australia, and it goes without saying that the BCF Easter Sale is a must-see event for top gear at bargain prices.
For Easter, BCF tends to run a two-week sale in the lead up to Easter, followed by a massive four-day sale across Easter. So you actually get almost one whole month of Easter savings.
With so many Aussies heading off on their Easter camping trip, these sales have a big focus on camping and fishing equipment; expect to see half-price tents, camp chairs and sleeping equipment like stretchers and sleeping bags.
Some of the top deals from the BCF Easter Sale 2019 include:

BCF Stocktake Sale
- Next Sale: June, 2019
Like most other large stores in Australia, the BCF Stocktake Sale takes place in the middle of the year, and given that it's a chance for the store to clear out old stock, the savings are usually epic!
This sale usually runs from early June for two or three weeks.
BCD Spring Sale
- Next Sale: September, 2019
The BCF Spring Saleis known as the "Spring Clean Out" and takes place in early September. This one usually runs for about ten days, and like the stocktake sale, it's usually a large sale with heavy discounts across most categories.
The 2018 sale included up to 50% off Wanderer Tents and 50% off AFL camp chairs.
BCF Frenzy Sale
- Next Sales: 21st May, 20th August & 12th November, 2019
Frenzy sales happen a number of times per year in Australia, and they are always massive online shop-a-thons that involves loads of Australian retailers.
In recent years we've seen BCF involved in the May and November events, and the deals range from further discounts off clearance items to massive reduction on big-ticket items like gazebos, kayaks and fishing rods.
In 2018, BCF also offered shoppers two-for-one on Wanderer Camp Chairs.
BCF Black Friday Sale
- Next Sale: 29th November, 2019
BCF has been participating in Black Friday sales for years, and most recently we've seen storewide discounts across almost the entire online store.
In 2018, shoppers scored 20% off absolutely everything online, except for fridges and marine electronics.
Unlike regular catalogue sales that run for weeks, the BCF Black Friday sale tends to be fleeting, usually running for just 24 hours.
BCF Boxing Day Sale
- Next Sale: 25th December, 2019
The BCF Boxing Day Sale usually starts online on Christmas Day, and in stores from the 26th December. You can expect this sale to wrap up on or around the 31st December.
Because of the fact that so many Australians take holidays during the fabulous summer months, the BCF Boxing Day Sale is one of the most popular of the year, and it's also the time to score up to 60% off some quality gear.
Recent Boxing Day Sales at BCF have included discounts across most categories, and some of the biggest reductions are often found on tents - very handy for those who go camping during summer!
