Bedourie Oven

 

Bedourie Oven is a type of camp oven very similar to a Dutch oven, which was created by ‘drovers’ working on Bedourie station of Queensland, Austrailia. It is a thick walled oven made of mild spun steel. The mild spun steel enables it to withstand rough use and prevents it from breaking even when dropped, unlike the cast iron camp ovens. It is used by the drovers, as they would often miss a meal while camping if their cast iron ovens fell and broke. Today, it is most commonly used by campers and commonly found in stores providing camping cookware.
