The Diamantina Weekender 1 Safari Tent is a high quality canvas dome tent perfect for the weekend away. Although its compact in size, it is perfect for 2 people with standing room in the centre. What’s appealing about this amazing little tent is its super tough and very simple. No guy ropes required at all, and only 6 minutes to set up.

These tents stand alone for their simple yet stable structures, because the components in these tents are stronger than all others of equivalent size.

Dome tents usually have a hollow frame made from fibreglass or aluminium that are cheap to make.  Unfortunately these frames also break very easily and require regular repairs and maintenance.  Our Weekender series of tents are made with a unique frame – SOLID CORE SPRING STEEL.  This frame is solid, has flexibility to hold its shape, and doesn’t break easily like the hollow frame systems.  So this tent can withstand up to 3 times the wind strength of other dome tents WITHOUT THE NEED FOR ANY GUY ROPES.

At 1.75m high in the middle, you can stand up in it. The 2.1m floor means 3 mattresses on the ground that are 60cm wide each will fit. Its the perfect little tent for 2 people with extra space for gear storage.

There’s not much point comparing this tent to the Chinese made dome tents in most stores, because every aspect of this tent is better quality.

All Chinese made dome tents require guy ropes to set them up. If you don’t use the guy ropes and a wind comes along and breaks the poles, your warranty is void (read the fine print in warranty paperwork with all brands).


The poles didn’t break.  It’s a quality piece of kit.  And so simple to set up.  ONLY 6 MINUTES.

You may think a pop up tent may be a better choice.  But look closely at the elbows and joints.  These are light weight moving parts that can break easily in wind.  And they will rattle and make noise.

These tents are stronger.  No moving parts that can break, and No fiddly extra bits to worry about.  It stands solid and firm.  You will feel secure in the knowledge this little tent will stand up to storms, so you can relax and sleep well.  We encourage you to look closely at the components in all the options and choose wisely.

The canvas used in our Weekender series of tents is a 320g rip stop poly canvas. Better than the canvas used in many swags. Its tough, has a superior tear strength, doesn’t fade quickly and can handle a few bumps and bruises along the way.

The floor is 550g PVC. This is tougher than some camper trailer materials. No sewn seams on the floor. You wont wear a hole in this floor easily.

The zippers used are YKK. Simply the worlds best. Do some research and find out how many other tents use these world class zips, most don’t.

This simple tent design packs small into one carry bag, so it can fit on a motorbike.  But its not a hiking tent, because the overall package is too heavy for hiking due to the high quality materials.

Time and time again in camp sites all over Australia these tents outlast and out perform all other tents of a similar size in harsh weather conditions. Don’t pay attention to the latest marketing goop talking about pop up this and air pole that, the idea of convenience needs to be carefully measured against simple strength and long term performance.

Features and Benefits:
Virtually unbreakable solid core spring steel poles – never worry about dealing with a snapped pole again.
Exclusive rip stop canvas – the only tents that can be set up semi-permanently without fear of fading or deteriorating in the harsh Australian sun. No other tents dare to make this claim.
Category 5 compliance – meets strict quality control standards to offer the highest quality possible.
Cooler – the materials used allow hot air to escape, providing more comfort.
Quieter – These tents don’t rattle and shake when the winds pick up. Compare this to a floppy dome tent or pop up tent that rattles all night in the wind.
Stronger – Much stronger structure in cross winds, holding their shape firm and stable.
Durable – Hands down will last up to 10 years longer in the Australian sun than most other dome tents. Put up a cheap dome tent in the sun for 1 month and watch what happens to the materials (will fade and break down).
Darker – Don’t buy a light and bright coloured tent because at 6am when the sun is up, so are you as the tent will be a bright glow. These tents deliberately let in less light in the early morning hours allowing you to enjoy more peaceful sleep.
Water resistant – Highly water resistant materials and treatments are used so these tents perform in the harshest conditions.
Strong rip stop UV resistant shadecloth netting used on the windows and doors. All other tents use nylon or polyester no seeum mesh that tears easily and breaks down in the sun.
Super Heavy Duty 550g waterproof PVC bucket floor. Simply nothing more heavy duty that this.
Never buy another tent again. Built to last.
