ARE POP UP TENTS GOOD?
Pop up tents from manufacturers such as Oztent and Oztrail are popular due to their instant-up simplicity. However, the difference between quality pop up tents and their undesirable counterparts is enormous. Purchasing a cheap no-name tent is a recipe for camping disaster, as it will leak, tear and probably blow away. Choose a pop up tent, dome tent, hiking tent or family tent designed by a well-known manufacturer, and keep your eye out for superior features that include:
- Water resistant fabrics and taped seams
- Fast hiking tent setup with adaptable configurations
- Pegs, guy ropes and bag included
- Awning, storage pockets and lantern hooks
- Strong frame and external fly
- Strong zippers and superior ventilation

HOW DO I CHOOSE A TENT?
Your tent choices should match your camping/hiking/trekking ambitions. There is no alternative to quality, particularly in a country as large as Australia, where temperatures soar and plummet and the weather can change without warning. Here are some handy tips for choosing the right tent so you can explore planet earth in style.
- Determine your camping tent space needs for accommodating everyone comfortably.
- Consider the weight of the camping tent if you are planning on hiking to the campsite.
- Choose a climate-appropriate tent suitable for your chosen destination.
- Make sure your family tent has enough floor space for people and belongings.
- Investigate adaptable tent accessories solutions for increasing floor space and camp storage.
- Consider the tent height for comfortably sitting or standing.
- Purchase tents, tarps, awnings and sleeping bags suited to prevailing weather conditions and wind strength.
- Consider tent accessories, portable toilets, food storage, shower tents and other outdoor options.
HOW TO KEEP WARM IN A TENT?
Tents provide a thin shield of protection from the elements and staying dry for campers and hikers is essential. The best family tents, pop-up tents, swags and other tents available at Anaconda are water resistant and promote air flow for staying cooler during the day and comfortable at night. The weather can drop markedly overnight in the outback, and you are guaranteed to wake up freezing unless you have a suitable tent, sleeping bag and other creature comforts on your side.
It pays to invest in a tent with a solid floor, strong guy ropes, and sturdy tent accessories, and the addition of a durable camp mattress will keep you high and dry. Our sleeping bag range is also unbeatable, so check out tent and sleeping bag options available at Anaconda, and pair your tent, bag, tent accessories, spare parts and other equipment for a warm and comfortable camping adventure. You should also take time to investigate other Anaconda products for creating an enjoyable camping or glamping experience. Modern camping can coexist with technology, devices, chargers, heaters, fans, solar lighting and other modern day hiker equipment.
WHAT SIZE TENT DO I NEED?
Most people prefer a slightly larger tent, rather than compressing everything into a confined space. If you require a general camping tent with more space, purchase a 3-person dome tent instead of a 2-person tent, or choose a tent with adaptable walls, rooms and awnings. Family tents can be a home base with all the bells and whistles including camp cooking equipment, solar lighting, USB compatible devices, an ensuite and every other type of comfort.
Your tent choice will probably be influenced by your favourite camping style, so whether you are looking for hiking tents, dome tents, cabin tents, a beach tent or roof top tent, Anaconda have the style options you are after. Our tents are hand selected by outdoor specialists for their workmanship, durability and weather-resistant performance, and with major tent manufacturers on our side, we pass the savings on to you.
