About Us

We're inspiring a life lived outdoors through gear that's considered, enduring and trustworthy. Our carefully curated range of gear is tried and tested in the mountains of Kosciuszko National Park and surrounds.

Watch: The Tom's Philosophy

Our Story

Founded on a mutual love for the outdoors, Tom’s Outdoors began in 2015. Founders Gemma and Chris Russell, who continue to run the business, are on a mission to inspire a life lived outdoors through gear that’s considered, enduring and trustworthy.

Tom’s Outdoors operates from Tumut NSW, where we thrive in the mountains of Kosciuszko National Park and surrounds. The rugged Snowy Mountains region and all the outdoor activities it offers allows us to live and breathe what we sell.

We specialise in premium, built-to-last outdoor clothing and equipment for fly fishing, hiking, camping, paddling, trail running, bike packing, climbing and snowshoeing. We stock a carefully curated range of brands whose philosophies align with our own.

However, our end goal is bigger than selling outdoor gear. We work to encourage families and individuals, younger people and older people and those from near and far to experience the outdoors, especially in our own local region. We are passionate about sharing the beauty of the Snowy Valleys and stories of the interesting, talented and wondrous people of the outdoors.

Who is Tom?

Chris and Gemma both have Grandfathers with the first name Tom (no, they’re not related!). Both Toms are keen outdoorsmen and as kids, Chris and Gemma spent a lot of time outdoors because of their grandfathers’ influence. Hence, the business is named in tribute to their Grandfathers.

Snowy Mountains Fly Fishing Tours

We are dedicated to offering an exceptional outdoor experience centered around the art and joy of fly fishing, catering to both seasoned enthusiasts and beginners. Our skilled guiding team embodies the essence of Tom's Outdoors providing an inclusive, professional and educational guiding experience. Drift the Tumut River, walk and wade Kosciuszko high country streams or fish the Snowy Mountains lakes.
