Tip 2 Cool your esky in advance if you can, by putting ice pack in the night before you travel, so the esky is cool for the actual packing of food. Tip 3 Freeze water in plastic 2L juice containers at least a week in advance (so very cold and solid) and add these to your esky/cooler. These large ice bottles can take a couple of days to defrost, and provide clean, cold drinking water if required. Tip 4 Meals/food that you have frozen in advance will allow the food to be kept longer ,and provides cooling to the esky.   Just make sure you reheat any cooked food properly and thoroughly. Plan to eat perishables early in the camping trip. Tip 5 Pack as many ice packs as you can fit into the esky and around the food. Too many ice packs/bottles is not a bad thing. Tip 6 Keep the esky out of the sun at all times. In warmer weather, put a tarp or blanket over it as well. You might need to move your esky numerous times during the day to keep out of the sun.

Saves the esky being opened all the time to get drinks out, especially with children who seem to always want a drink. Tip 8 Pack your esky with the frozen food and raw meats at the bottom and near the ice packs, then layer the food in the esky so the items needing the less refrigeration (eg. fresh fruit and veg) are at the top. how to keep food cold when camping Tip 9 Thermal Ice Packs have proven to be very effective for us. We use these as they are slimline and can be placed around food and down the side of the icebox as well. Handy to have on-hand too for a first aid method. Tip 10 Want extra cold ice? With your empty plastic bottle, add 1/4 cup of salt to it. Salt in water helps it freeze faster and more effectively. Just make sure you mark this bottle of water, so you knows its a salty one when it defrosts. Courtesy of www.gocampingaustralia.com
Tip 1 Don’t use the party ice they sell at service stations/supermarkets. It melts too quickly and is uneconomical.  Use it only as a last minute top up, if you need to extend the life of your food for a day or two.
