Australian made climbing gear 18-May-2015 At 4:03:44 PM BA
Back in the day, Ferret (aka Ian Anger) made harnesses and protective bags for Walkmans (wonderfully called Padded Cells). He also repaired packs etc.

Roland made aluminium bongs in sizes larger than Chouinards chrome-moly ones, as well as bolt plates and the world famous RP nuts. He also made 'crackers' from hexagonal aluminium stock as well, although not as large as range as Ewbank had made.

The Gledhills also made their own gear, bongs, bolt plates, aid bolts etc.

I also made my own bolt plates and nuts from hexagonal brass stock.

Rick White made (or had made for him) climbing shoes; Beau Brummels, for the height of climbing fashion.

There was a boot factory down in Collingwood/Abbotsford that also made climbing shoes.

Claw is infamous for his funky protection devices and didn't Mark Moorhead famously use an automotive seat belt for protection at Hanging Rock?

I am sure there were other Australian makers of harnesses, bolt plates/hangers, etc.
