The Diamantina Weekender Family 4.5m Safari Tent has been designed for the large family or a spacious glamping or eco tourism tent site. It offers a massive amount of internal space for a single room dome tent, yet simple to set up and minimal footprint with no guy ropes required to set up. The package size is compact compared to the space it offers inside, with enough room to comfortably sleep 4-6 people with plenty of standing room all around. This is a super tough tent and very simple in design, meaning less possible components that could break or require maintenance. We developed this model to offer another alternative to the Bell shape tents used for glamping sites, only this design is stronger, uses better quality materials, requires less maintenance and therefore will be more durable after extensive use. This is the ideal tent to use for hiring out camp site accommodation.
NO GUY ROPES AT ALL which cuts down the set up time considerably, and you have a tent that can handle almost anything mother nature throws at it. Unlike the throw away tents that will likely break with a gust of wind, these tents are made with the best components, so you can relax and concentrate on other things. Think of it built like the best quality swag on the market, only with more internal room and a stronger frame.
Plenty of standing room with 2.35m centre height. The octagonal shape floor means 6 mattresses will fit on the ground that are 60cm wide each. Or set up a queen size bed in the centre for a luxurious space with extra room.
Why you should seriously consider this great shelter. Take a look firstly at every other dome tent on the market and you will find they all 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).
These tents are made with SOLID CORE SPRING STEEL POLES, rather than tubular steel poles or hollow fiberglass poles that can easily fracture. The spring steel is super strong but also very flexible, and has a memory to keep its shape and structure for many years of use. So we have the best frames. And they are so simple to set up. No fiddly extra bits to worry about. And you will feel secure in the knowledge this tent will stand up to storms, so you can relax and sleep well.
The canvas used 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 canvas fly sheet with front awning provides more shade and insulation, keeping the tent cooler inside.
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 zips, most don’t.
Our commercial partners who have used our tents for years realise pretty quickly they have found the best, and keep re using these models. They just don’t have to deal with tears and breaks and lost parts like other tents. This is no fuss quality that you can rely on to do a great job. 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 cant out perform a simple and strong product built to last.

Features and Benefits:
This is the largest single room dome tent in our safari tent family. Its very tall and spacious, yes amazingly durable, reliable and easy to set up. With a double skin canvas roof, its also going to be much cooler than other tents on hot days. 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.

NOTE – The Weekender Family 4m Safari Canvas Tent is without the front awning is generally not a stocked item.
