We are dedicated to becoming an integral part of the local outdoor community and a place for outdoor enthusiasts to train, meet, re-fuel, equip themselves and most importantly share their passion and knowledge of the outdoors.

Throughout the year we are looking to hold an exciting range of events here at Apex Outdoor. We purposely designed our space to accommodate a variety of activities.  Our Boot Log Cabin converts into a fantastic focal point for presentations and talks from local and national stars of the outdoor world.
