Our Story

In December of 2019 we pitched our camp on Dowe St Tamworth, NSW. Next door to our mates at The Welders Dog tap house, we figured a little hole in the wall coffee shop in one of our favourite places would be a good way to contribute…

We found there was a lack of places to take us on the coffee adventure we were craving. Don’t us country folk deserve all those snazzy brews the city slickers take for granted? We decided to do something about it…

During our time road-trippin’ and coffee sippin’, we learned about all the cool independent Aussie roasters doing specialty coffee that deserved to be championed in regional Australia…

Out of that need (and our love for the coffee of course), Camp Grounds was born. With our combined skills (Matt in hospo and Mon in design), we made a plan to create a place of changing brews, coffee brewing gear and good times that directly supports Aussie roasters who are doing the right thing by people and the planet.

We are spreading even more of good brews and smiles with the launch of our second specialty coffee shop in Gunnedah NSW from August 2021 – October 2023.

We passed the coffee machine reins at the gunny shop to Renee and the Reverence Sourdough Bakery team in October 2023. Word on the street is they are still serving up the Floozy good brews!

November 2023 we moved to our new Tamworth digs at 322 Peel St.

We’ve doubled our seating (and it’s comfy) so you can come hang even longer…chill out with outdoor and indoor dining – make ya’self at home in our new home!

With a cool collection of specialty roasters and our very own gear we answered the call to open up to the wider world. For all that love that locals give to us, we wanted to spread it around. That’s why we took things online – launching our online store!

Cofounders Matt & Mon both are stoked to have a talented crew of Happy Campers – who are much more than bloody good baristas! Learn more about the team in Tamworth here
