Gear Store


The gear store is located in the ANU Sports Union (Building 19A on Campus Map) in the new (far) gym. It is on the far side of the hall inside Storeroom 4 and up the stairs.


Opening Hours
Opening times are:

  • Tuesdays (for return of gear): 6:00 to 6:30pm, during semester, closed during January
  • Thursdays (for hire of gear): 6:00 to 6:30pm

The gearstore may be opened at other times at the discretion of the gearstore officers and is often opened in winter on Wednesday evenings for skiing pretrip meetings. Trip leaders proposing to conduct a pretrip meeting on other than a Thursday evening, and who anticipate a requirement by participants for club gear, should make timely prior contact with the gearstore officers to request their assistance.

Equipment Hire
Most of the basic gear required for club trips is readily available from the gearstore. Only ANUMC members may hire gear and may be required to show their membership card when doing so. Trip participants are required to hire their own gear.

Hire rates for club trips are very reasonable; you will pay no more than $15 for hire of all personal gear for a club trip. The club also hires gear to club members for private trips, subject to availability after all gear requirements for club trips being satisfied. For private hire rates, click here. A deposit is required for all hires. Please note the gear store currently accepts cash only, so you will need to bring enough cash to cover your hire and deposit. ATMs are available in the SRA foyer near the Purple Pickle Cafe, and in Union Court.
