Tent Buying Guide
Date Posted:7 June 2018
A tent is the most important piece of camping equipment you will ever pack for your adventure. Whether hiking in the mountains, a weekend at a Big4, 4WDing on Fraser Island or taking the family to a bush campground, you will need a good tent to bunker down in if the weather turns. A good tent will protect you from the weather, insects and even wild animals. It can also be used to protect your food and other gear.
We can’t cover all the aspects of tents and their varieties in one feature, so we will only focus on the primary aspects:
- Types of tents
- Geodesic Domes
- Fast Pitching Tents
- Roof Top Tents
The degree of ventilation you require will depend on the environment you camp in. If you do adventure camping in cold regions, less ventilation is best as you will be warmer and more waterproof. However, the average Australian camper will most likely prefer greater levels of ventilation.
