Best Instant Up Tents Australia – Reviewed & Compared

Do you hate setting up and packing down your tent? Trying to simultaneously connect both ends of your tent poles, clipping the fly onto the poles, and banging pegs into rocky ground isn’t much fun. In this article, I compare the best instant up tents in Australia, to let you know which one is right for you.

Instant tents (also known as instant up tents, fast pitching tents or quick erect tents) make setup fast and easy by having the tent poles already pre-attached to the tent itself.

As each instant tent range comes in a variety of sizes, I have based my comparison and reviews on the 4P variety to keep things consistent where possible. Unfortunately, the OZtrail Lumos Fast Frame range does not come in a 4P variety.

I list the varieties available for each range at the end of each of the product reviews.
