Clipper International Corp. incorporating Clipper Trading Co Pty Ltd, was established in 1956 and the Caribee brand has been available in the Australian market since the mid 1960's. As both the company and brand grew, so did the Caribee brands position in the Australian outdoor & travel industry. From the outset, the Caribee brand has created products that provide consumers with great value for money and class leading quality.

Continual growth and a growing market following allowed Clipper International to continually develop and expand it’s office and warehouse facilities.

Believe it or not, we are an Aussie company with a South American derived name. Caribee’s name comes from a South American piranha like species know scientifically as the Pygocentrus nattereri or Caribe. Its compact size masks the fact that it is a dominant and resilient species in its environment. A creature to be taken seriously.  At Caribee we take this same approach with our brand and products we make.


Caribee designs and develops the latest equipment for travel and outdoor markets. Our many years of experience has allowed us to build the Caribee brand into one of Australia’s largest and most trusted travel and outdoor brands. Caribee incorporates both Australian and International trends to develop equipment that not only appeals, but satisfies the consumers demands.
