Let’s face it, when it comes to buying a great simulation and gaming gear, you’re not dealing with peanuts. Some simulators can cost upwards of $5,000 (we’ve got some that retail for more than $20,000!).
Point is, you’re smart. You’re not about to hand over that kind of cash to just anyone, right?
You want to deal with the experts who can set you up with a world-class simulator, that’s perfect for your needs, at a great price and backed by a long-term, no fuss, manufacturer-backed warranty.
I’m pleased to say, Gamer Gear Direct fits the bill – perfectly.
We stock one of Australia's largest selections of racing, flight and golf simulation gear and gaming accessories at the best prices backed by first-class customer service.
We’re an authorised dealer for all the big brands including Asetek, Gomez Sim Industries, Cube Controls, RSEAT, Next Level Racing, Trak Racer, Playseat, Thrustmaster, Logitech, The Net Return, SkyTrak, Flightscope and a whole lot more!
When it comes to simulation and gaming gear, no matter what you’re after, we’ve (probably) got it.
Even if you don’t see a specific product when searching around our website, just let us know and we’ll probably be able to get it for you.
There’s a lot more to share with you on how we can help you get your hands on the simulator you’re looking for.
First, it’s about time I properly introduced myself and the Gamer Gear Direct team.
My name is Blake and I’m the founder of Gamer Gear Direct
I’m a self-confessed simulation and gaming fanatic. My team and I are 100% dedicated to help match you with the best simulation and gaming products for your specific needs.
That’s me in the photo you see here.
I've been a gaming and simulation fan for as long as I can remember.
In 1991, when I was 9 years-old, my parents bought me and my younger brother a Sega Master System for Christmas.
Yep – old school!
Along with the Sega console, my parents grabbed two racing titles: Out Run and R.C. Grand Prix.
As a 9-year-old kid I was spell-bound. I’d get up super early almost every day just to play those racing games. I’d be perched in front of the TV for hours and hours. My Dad would literally have to pry the gamepad from my hands and throw me outside, just to stop me playing.
That hasn’t changed, by the way. Only now it’s my wife screaming at me to jump off my racing rig or golf simulator and as she puts it: "Go and do something more constructive".
That love for racing games has never wavered. I’ve been obsessed with racing and gaming since the early 90’s. Every time I sit down to race on my rig, hit a few balls on my golf sim or turn on my Xbox and kill a few bad guys in Robocop: Rogue City, I get that same spine-tingling excitement as I did on that crisp Christmas morning in 1991.
But having the right products to fuel that excitement makes a big difference. Which is why I kick-started Gamer Gear Direct back in 2018...
To help everyday folks (like you) get their hands on the best simulation and gaming products around
Gamer Gear Direct emerged from humble beginnings in 2018. In fact, I started the business from my garage in the south east suburbs of Melbourne with nothing more than my trusty laptop, a few Xbox controllers and a couple of boxed up racing cockpits.
Today, we're official Australian dealers for multiple gaming and simulation brands and we oversee a warehouse facility in Dudley Park, South Australia (see an image of our facility below).
Plus, we've partnered up with multiple warehouses around the country, all in an effort to bring you the BEST gaming and simulation products from around the world.
A lot of our gear is shipped from this warehouse in Dudley Park, South Australia
My team and I are pure-bred gaming and simulation FANATICS.
So, if you’re need an answer to a question, if you’re confused about whether you should buy a full sim rig or go for a wheel stand or you don’t know whether a golf bay will fit in your garage, we’re here to help you.
The Gamer Gear Direct team is on standby to help you
Our team is made up of passionate gamers and simulation experts that are on standby five days a week to answer your questions and help you find the gear for your specific needs.
Whether you have a product specific query or you just want to chat about iRacing, Assetto Corsa Competizione or TGC 2019, our team is happy to take your call.
Let's introduce you to Karl, one of our dedicated customer service agents at Gamer Gear Direct. Karl's love affair with gaming began when he was barely young enough to get his hands around a joystick.
Karl's all-time favourite? The adrenaline-pumping racing game, Top Gear, on the Super Nintendo System. It might be old-school but Karl says every time he plays Top Gear, the gamer transports him back to his childhood.
Karl's love for gaming has shaped his mission at Gamer Gear Direct: to help YOU have the best gaming and simulation experience possible.
Whether you have queries, need recommendations, or just want to chat about old-school games, Karl's your guy. So, next time you reach out, don’t hesitate to drop a mention about Top Gear; it’ll surely fuel a delightful conversation.
Shop with us now and you’ll be playing with top quality, brand-name gear that's built to last and supported by the original manufacturer. That’s important for you to know. You don’t want to buy any dodgy, cheap sim stuff. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of it on the market.
Say hello to Kurt...
Ever wondered if our customer service agents actually know their games? Well, with Kurt, you've hit the jackpot. From those early days of dodging pixels on screen to mastering the latest titles, gaming has always been Kurt's jam.
Now, let's dive into his favourites. If you've ever found yourself engrossed in the high-octane races of Asphalt 9 or felt the thrill chasing rivals in Need For Speed, then you and Kurt already have tons in common. And for those who love to strategize and engage in intense combats, Kurt's got your six with his love for Call Of Duty.
At Gamer Gear Direct, Kurt channels his passion into assisting YOU. Whether you're in a dilemma over gaming gear, want insights on the latest titles, or just feel like discussing the best NFS edition (Hot Pursuit, anyone?), Kurt's always game.
So, next time you pop in with a question, throw in a little gaming trivia; you and Kurt might just become the next dynamic gaming duo.
Don’t waste your hard-earned dollars on those crappy Chinese simulators you’ll find scattered all over eBay and Catch
There are some truly terrible sim rigs and accessories floating around the internet.
Every now and then I’ll scoot over to eBay or catch.com.au and check out all the crap sim gear on those marketplaces. Makes me mad to think about the faceless folks on eBay trying to part good people (like you) from their money with second-rate, crap quality simulators and accessories.
Two questions you need to ask yourself BEFORE you hit the buy button…
1. Who is selling this stuff?
Can you really trust the folks on those marketplaces and the products they sell? There’s no real way to tell where they source products. You could be dealing with fake brand-name stuff, too. It’s like the Wild West, you don’t know what you’re getting!
On the other hand, we’re official resellers for every brand we sell online. Every product we list is sourced direct from the manufacturer. You can rest assured you’re buying REAL brand-name products, backed by a local, manufacturers’ warranty.
The second question you need to ask yourself before you lay down a single dollar is…
2. Can I trust these people?
It’s easy to hide away on eBay or Catch. You don’t even need an ABN to start listing goods. That means it’s open to rip-off merchants to infiltrate these marketplaces, sell all those dodgy goods and basically steal your hard-earned cash!
On the other hand, we’re a registered Australian business (Gamer Gear Direct is a division of the trustee for The Sterling Family Trust, ABN: 16 930 124 355).
You can contact us 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday on (03) 9961 0240…or shoot us a quick email: email@example.com
We’re a Melbourne based, family business run by a small bunch of simulator addicts and we've fast become Australia's No. 1 source for all-things simulation.
From racing to flight to golf, if you’re a serious simulation enthusiast racer or a weekend warrior and you’re shopping around for sim gear, we’ve got what you need.
From full simulator rigs to golf simulators, racing wheels and pedals, yokes, joysticks, monitors & monitor stands, gaming desks and chairs…we stock the lot.
We stock all the big brands including Next Level Racing, Playseat Thrustmaster, Cube Controls, Trak Racer, The Net Return, SkyTrak, Flightscope, Asetek and more
No matter what brand name gear you’re after, we’ve got it.
Better still, because we’re online-only and we don’t pay huge overheads, our prices are super-cheap.
While we don’t officially offer a price match, guarantee, if you do find something on the internet for a cheaper price, hit us up and we’ll see what we can do for you.
First-class customer service GUARANTEED
We’re happy to do what we can to make you our next happy customer.
Just before Christmas 2019 I got a phone call from a super-distressed customer.
This lady was in hysterics because the racing simulator she’d ordered for hubby hadn’t shown up.
It was well over a week since we’d shipped it out (should have arrived within three days). Worse, the tracking details were telling us the package was delivered.
But our customer was adamant nothing had shown up. In fact, her hubby had taken unpaid leave for a day to sit around for when the package was due to arrive – but nothing showed up.
Now, what do you think 99% of those big box stores would do? Being so close to Christmas they’d probably tell you: ‘too bad, so sad’.
But we’re not ordinary online retailer. Fact is, we take pride in being EXTRAORDINARY.
The team got in touch with our partner warehouse that’s shipped the package and then spent the next 4 hours on the phones calling multiple courier agents and reps to track down where this package had ended up and try and have it delivered before Christmas.
So, what happened?
Well that monster effort on our part meant we eventually found the GTUltimate and had it delivered just before Chrissy morning.
Here’s what that customer, Ashley had to say:
"I want to say a huge thank you to Blake and the team at Gamer Gear Direct. The service has been absolutely impeccable from the moment I first looked at items to the moment they were delivered. I bothered Blake quite a bit, but nothing was too much trouble and he went above and beyond to help me. 5 star service".
That's a pretty good testimonial, right?
Our business is based on making your shopping experience with us as pleasant and simple as possible.
We’re an online only store
We keep overhead costs super-low by selling all products through our e-commerce store.
See, most traditional brick-and-mortar stores often have huge overhead costs. They need to pay lots of staff, rent and huge marketing costs. How do they pass on those costs? By jacking up the product prices you pay!
We’re different. We run a lean ship here. We ship directly from our warehouse facility in Dudley Park, South Australia or from one of our various partner warehouses - whichever is more efficient. That saves us money and we pass those savings onto YOU.
Here’s how you can start saving money
on your favourite sim gear right now
I’d like to help your save money when you shop with us, right now.
Here’s what I’d like to do. I’d like to give you a $20 discount code (you can use for your first order on ANY product in our store with a value over $199). Consider it a gift from me to you for reading all the way to the end of our awesome about us page 😉

Not only will you receive a $20 discount code on your first order (for any product $199 and above), you'll also be upgraded to automatic VIP membership. This gives you first dibs on any deals, discounts and sales before the general public get a whiff.
From time to time we run sales that could save you HUNDREDS on top quality sim gear and accessories. But the only way you’ll get access to these crazy-awesome deals is by signing up below. Again, just type in your best email and hit ‘Yes! I Want To Save $20’.
