about Us

Canvas Tent and Portable Shelter Specialists. The Diamantina Outdoors story began in 2002 diligently designing, using and testing various products across the globe to develop the worlds best portable tents, gazebos and shelters.

Resilient:- "Able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions. Able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed." This describes not only the heavy duty products under the Diamantina label but the journey of Diamantina Outdoors since inception. Diamantina Outdoors began in 2002 with its first range of dome tents for the Australian market. Quickly the brand expanded to include a high quality range of canvas tents for family camping, still highly regarded as some of the finest canvas tents in Australia. Over the years various ranges of camp furniture, sleeping bags, swags, mattresses, gazebos and kayaks have been developed. Today we simply sell the best of the best in the categories we do. Diamantina Outdoors - Unbreakable.

Our advantages

The Light Bulb Moment

After 30 years of using, testing, selling, and designing every type of portable shelter in Australia, Diamantina Outdoors has an established reputation for high quality tents and shelters fit for the Australian outback. Used and recommended by commercial operators for their proven strength and durability, Diamantina Tents are built to last. The light bulb moment clicks in when clients choose Diamantina Tents after experiencing how other brands dont last the distance. The smile gets bigger after you have faced your first severe storm, and your Diamantina Shelter is the last one standing.

Strong Designs & Product Characteristics

Diamantina products are extensively tried and tested in all sorts of extreme conditions and environments before hitting the market. We specialise in canvas shelters for a number of very good reasons. And a specific blend of textiles are chosen to provide the best performance characteristics in abrasian resistance, tear strength, breathability in hot weather, water resistance, and UV resistance. Only after these tests are completed, the product may pass to be sold under the Diamantina label.

African and Australian Partnership

Many of the Diamantina products are made in South Africa using high quality components. We provide these products globally and have the advantage of experience in testing these products in locations all over Africa and Australia. We share our expertise with our global manufacturing partners to provide the best possible advice and service. Bespoke product characteristics can be manufactured to give your eco tourism business a unique look and edge over competitors.
