Best Pop Up Tents Australia – Which Are Worth Buying? (From $49)

Are you keen on going camping but find tent setup tedious and time-consuming? Well, pop up tents may be the answer you have been looking for. To help you figure out which one is right for you, I will be comparing and reviewing the best pop up tents Australia.

Pop up tents (also known as easy set up tents) don’t actually have separate tent poles like conventional tents. Instead, the structure of the tent is already built into the seams, which means that as soon as you lay the tent flat on the ground, it will automatically unfold and form the correct shape.

With a pop up tent, setup takes (literally!) just a few seconds.

  • 3,000mm waterproof rating
  • Sunlight blocking to keep you cool and let you sleep in
  • Built in internal lighting makes it easy to see at night

The Explore Planet Earth Speedy Black Hole range is widely regarded by many as the best pop up tent in Australia.

It is a surprisingly sturdy and reliable camping tent, especially for a pop up. The 3,000mm waterproof rating will keep you dry in almost all conditions, although some people have noted that you need to peg it out carefully to prevent pooling or water on the top.

The sunlight blocking lets you sleep in beyond 6am, and also helps keep you cool on hot summer days, but also warmer on cool winter nights.

The built in internal lighting is a nice touch, and it means that you can easily play some games in the tent at night, without trying to attach any torches or lanterns. It can be powered from a USB battery adapter, or a power bank (this is not included).

The 3 year warranty is fantastic and not often seen for these units.

It comes in 2, 3 and 4 person varieties.
