    As in this sentence.

    Just as well- bushcraft clobber is banned when it comes to staff.

    Its more of an Aussie word...

    Just means general attire... clothing and such.
    The statement is just telling the staff to wear smart and casual...

    My first thought of "clobber" is a verb: to hit with great force. The bus clobbered the jaywalker.

    A lot of those "Australian" slang terms originally come from the London cockney slang, with a bit more from the Irish and Scots.
