Tom's Outdoors was founded by Chris and Gemma Russell in 2015 with the physical and online store being located in the NSW Snowy Mountains town of Tumut.
With our mutual passion for the outdoors we created a store, that gives others the chance to experience what fuels our fire. We pride ourselves on being 100% independent, family-owned and operated business.
Specialising in high-quality camping, hiking, fly fishing outdoor equipment and accessories. We built our range with brands that we know and trust.
Being based in Tumut allows us to live and breath what we sell. Living in the rugged Snowy Mountains region we have the opportunity to practice and gain knowledge in our own backyard, a type that can only come from experience.
Our goal is to encourage all families, individuals and visitors to get out and see our beautiful region and all it has to offer, every season of the year.
To both Chris and Gemma, family is very important and both their Grandfathers share the first name Tom. Both Tom's are keen outdoorsmen, they were both active outdoors into their late 80's, as kids Chris and Gemma they both spent a lot of time outdoors because of their grandfathers influence.
In 2017 we won the 3 awards in the Tumut Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. Best Retail Business, Best New Business and the big one Snowy Hydro Business of the Year.
In 2019 we won the 2 awards in the Tumut Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. Best Retail Business and Excellence in Innovation.
