Christie is an Australian family-owned company, dedicated to providing the best possible experience for our clients and public barbecue users. Founded in 1965 by David (Sandy) Christie, we started providing fixed electrical public barbecues to Councils throughout Australia to address concerns over public safety and potential bush fires caused by open flame barbecues. In 1987, we introduced a gas burner park barbecue for use in National Parks and other remote locations where mains power is often not available.
We are passionate about producing the safest, most energy efficient and reliable barbecues in the world. Our products have been bringing communities together for more than forty years – a proud tradition and part of the landscape. Working closely with our clients and always investing in research and development, we have been responsible for every major innovation in the community barbecue industry and have driven significant and continuous improvements in the areas of cooking efficiency, safety, design, usability, wheelchair accessibility, and quality.
After four decades of product refinement and with thousands of barbecues installed across the world, the name Christie is synonymous with reliable, energy efficient barbecues and exceptional customer support. In addition to local and national parks, our products are popular in caravan parks, resorts, retirement communities, high rise apartment buildings, universities, correction facilities, and anywhere that safe, energy efficient barbecue cooking facilities are required. We are proud of this heritage.
Christie is the only dedicated public barbecue manufacturer in the world. We focus exclusively on providing the safest, most reliable, and most energy efficient product on the market.
