About us

“We Sell The Best And Service The Rest”

In 1977 Ray and Lily Collins established R & L Collins Stove & Heater Centre, selling wood fired heaters, cookers, and spare parts. Soon after, they branched out to do repairs, servicing and installations and today, remain a family owned and operated business trading as Bairnsdale Stoves, Heaters & BBQs.

As one of the early pioneers in the industry, our name is synonymous with wood heating and cooking and provide unmatched product knowledge, experience and spare parts.   We use our experience and expertise to help you select the right wood heater and cooking options for your home.

Servicing East Gippsland to Melbourne and all the way into NSW, we stock the largest range of:

  • Quality Australian, European, American, Canadian and NZ made slow combustion wood fired heaters
  • European and Australian slow combustion wood fired cookers
  • Latest range of gas and electric gas and electric cookers
  • Gas log fires
  • Accessories including fire tool sets, fire screens, wood buckets and high temp paint
  • Heatlie and Morso BBQs
  • Low and mains pressure hot water cylinders
  • Solar panels
  • Evacuated tube hot water systems


Since the commencement of our business in 1977, we have always offered to install all wood fired heaters, cookers, hot water systems as well as our gas fired heaters and cookers with 100% guarantee on all work performed and are prepared to travel anywhere to do this work for our customers.

Repair & Reconditioning

With over 42 years of experience in repairs and servicing, we provide a full and comprehensive reconditioning and repair service from our Bairnsdale premises. We also specialise in heater door repairs (new glass, seals, handles, glass channels), sandblasting, painting and fan repairs or replacement. We recommend the doors and fans be brought into us for this work.

Largest Range of Spare Parts

In addition, we stock and supply the largest range of Australian made spare parts for wood fired heaters and cookers, including current, superseded and vintage models from both Australian and overseas manufactured units.

If your part is no longer available from a supplier, we could probably make it for you. We have been making up a vast range of patterns and moulds to make parts that no longer exist that are cast in Australian foundries.


Not only do we supply the largest range of manufactured spare parts, we also manufacture two of our own cookers. ‘The Ralann’ is a large 48” full slow combustion wood fired cooker and ‘The Jodanna’ is a 30” top fire stove, and both are 100% made right here in Victoria.
