About The Aussie Heatwave

Established in 2000, The Aussie Heatwave is a Premium quality Australian Made Cast Iron Chiminea that's virtually indestructible and will last for generations.

The Aussie Heatwave Chiminea is totally “pyromaniac proof” and is adolescent kid & party proof as well. Unlike cheap copies that will crack and fall apart quite quickly. They come with a 10-year guarantee, but they will last a lifetime. We’ve been selling them for over 20yrs & nobody has worn one out so far.

They come in a natural catalytic rust finish created by a special process which stabilises & looks better with age and use. They won’t continue to rust away like mild steel does, the cast iron naturally gets a protective coating with heat and use, and they will develop a darkish brown colour/patina similar to that of an old cast iron cannon.

The Aussie Heatwave Chiminea is a one-piece heavy casting. It has no moving parts, bolts, vents or grates to fall off and wear out. Due to its clever design, it draws and burns perfectly giving a very efficient hotter, cleaner burning fire and as such has very little smoke and minimal ash. You will rarely ever need to remove ash! It’s truly amazing! Everything burns away on the bed of sand leaving no mess. Even the odd chop bone.

One of Aussie Heatwaves greatest features is that they are the only Chiminea that is completely safe to use on timber decks as the base and legs stay cool and due to the sand base & they don't spit or spark.

About Us 

Having introduced Australians to the joy of outdoor fireplaces with clay Mexican chimineas 25 years ago we then began manufacturing an Aussie version in cast iron and called it the Aussie Heatwave. Made In Country Victoria from the best quality recycled Australian iron which will last a lifetime.

They are the ideal outdoor heater that extends the usability of your outdoor entertaining area creating a warm cosy atmosphere for friends and family to gather around. There’s nothing more inviting than a warm crackling fire!

In addition to be an outdoor fireplace there is also an Optional BBQ /Pizza Oven Attachment which slots onto the top of the chimney to easily convert it into a woodfired BBQ & woodfired roasting and pizza oven. It’s A Lifestyle On Legs!!

The Aussie Heatwave Chimineas are available in one size, two styles, CLASSIC Design (THIS PRODUCT) and GRAPE VINE design. They both stand approx. 1.2m high & weigh 95kg.There's no difference in the way they perform it's simply a matter of selecting the style that you prefer.

Optional Upgrades & Accessories - to Create Your LifeStyle on Legs !

You can choose to upgrade to a heavy duty 3 leg stand. This stand is a sturdier, heavier metal as is the better stand to have if you ever want to add the Roller Deck as it has 3 wheels, and the 3 legs spreads the weight evenly over the wheels. Plus, it is lower for the roller deck.

Other optional accessories include rain lids & fire pokers, BBQ /Pizza Oven Attachment, Roller deck These can be selected and added to your order from the recommended products above.

Delivery And Shipping

Deliveries on the East coast of Australia generally take between 2-7 working days. However, if your order is urgent please advise us and we can endeavour to speed up delivery. For the West coast of Australia and far north Queensland & the NT, you should allow approx 3-10 days for delivery depending on your location.

Home Deliveries

All freight comes shrink wrapped on a timber pallet and the freight company will call you to advise a delivery day. For large items someone is required to be at home to receive the goods but with smaller accessories you can give the freight company authority to leave the goods at the front door if nobody is home.

Larger items include products such as the Chiminea and firepits and these will arrive on a pallet. Goods can be taken off the pallet and trolleyed individually to your desired location. Due to health and safety rules and insurances the Freight company will not enter your home or deliver to your back garden. They are only authorised to deliver the goods to the nearest level access carport or front door. If the drive or access is very steep or not easily accesses they will only deliver as far as the nature strip or nearest levels access.

We find that this general freight service is adequate for 95% of customers however if you feel you require a more comprehensive delivery service we can arrange a furniture removalist which will generally entail two men and they will deliver the goods and place them in the exact required location within your property. This service incurs additional costs and you will need to call or send us an email requesting this upgraded service. As a cost guide, depending on your location, this delivery service will be approximately double that of our standard delivery.

Depot Collection

The freight depot will call you when your goods arrive and are ready to collect. If you haven't heard from anyone after a week from the time of your order please contact us and we will chase them up. The goods will most likely have arrived and they have just neglected to call and advise you that they are ready to collect. You can collect your goods from a depot and they will easily fit into a station wagon, 4WD or UTE. The goods can be taken off the pallet and loaded into your car lying down or in the case of a UTE the whole a pallet will be forklifted into the back.

Occasional delays in freight can occur particularly in the busier times around Christmas and Easter. Generally we find everything runs according to plan but as the freight company is an independent contractor we have no control of events once its leaves our warehouse.

Damaged During Delivery

All goods are insured, but given the nature of our products we very rarely have any problems with damaged goods. In fact over the past 15 years there have only been a very few damaged items but in the event your item is damaged in transit it will be replaced.
