Pannier Hire

Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Deuter, the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation has panniers available for hire. Ideal for those who wish to set out on multi-day trips on the Munda Biddi Trail without having to purchase their own panniers. We offer Dryshield (waterproof) Rack Pack and Rack Pack Low Rider rear panniers.

  • Hire costs
    Munda Biddi Members: $20/week
    Non-members: $40/week
    For more information or to book, please contact the Foundation.

  • Hire Conditions
    Panniers must be returned in the same condition that they were in when picked up. They should be free from dirt and mud. If not, the customer may be charged $50 for the cost of cleaning.
    The panniers are to be returned before 5pm on the final day of hire.
    Late returns will be penalised $10/day for each day the items (including parts) are overdue.
    A refundable deposit of $150 per set of panniers is to be paid before equipment is taken.

Personal Locating Beacons (PLBs)

The PLBs for hire are the ACR ResQLink™ PLBs which operate on the new 406 MHz frequency, are waterproof, compact and weigh 130 grams. Check the specifications.

You may hire these for use anywhere within Australia or New Zealand only.

If you wish to hire a Personal Locating Beacon (PLB) please read the Conditions of Hire and complete the PLB booking and disclaimer form and send it to us so that it arrives at least five business days prior to the start of the hire period.

Please read the PLB Instructions for Use before you take the PLB on your outdoor adventure.

Note that the new PLBs are required to be registered to the user. All mandatory fields on the booking form must be completed before a hire will be approved. The Foundation will register the beacon for you. 

Please book early! Our equipment is in high demand during the walking season (April to November). PLBs are often booked out months in advance.
