Often referred to as the “Guru” of camp oven cooking, Ranger Nick is the master of keeping it simple and has been demonstrating camp oven and bush cooking skills professionally since 2010, travelling the country and abroad. Coming from a large family, he whips up a cracker of a meal with whatever is in the tuckerbox.
A previous environmental education support officer and Ranger Guide from outback Queensland, Ranger Nick is putting his bush skills to use wherever his travels take him. When he is not cooking up a storm in the camp oven, Ranger Nick passes on his knowledge to school groups and fellow adventurers, teaching them the art of bush skills, camp oven cooking and outdoor etiquette.
Recently involved in successfully claiming the World Record title for the Longest Damper, Ranger Nick has guest appearances on “Step Outside with Paul Burt”, weekly radio segments on “West Bremer Radio”, monthly podcast interviews, is the author of three books, has released a DVD, developed a comprehensive Outdoor Training Program, has his own brand of merchandise and frequently gets invited to judge at large camp oven cooking competitions.
