For those who will be packing up every morning and setting up every evening, touring tents (aka tourer tents) are ideal. They are tough and rugged to withstand Australian conditions, yet can be set up in mere minutes.
But how do you know which one to buy? Well, I have compared the best touring tents in Australia to help you figure out which one is right for you.
Let’s get straight into it!

Best Touring Tents Australia
OZtrail Tourer 9 Canvas Tent
This canvas tent is outstanding value. Not only that, but it is well built, sturdy, and spacious, making it (in my opinion) the best touring tent in Australia. It packs down to a compact square shape for easy storage.
The high ceiling at 210cm (great for getting changed in the tent!), large floor space and front and rear doors make it a very comfortable option. The generous 2 year warranty is also much appreciated.
Unfortunately, a few people have complained that their unit was not particularly waterproof, although others have not had any issues. As with all canvas tents, I highly recommend that you season the tent before you head out on your first trip.
The carry bag that the tent comes with is also a bit flimsy and it is probably worth upgrading this if your tent will be seeing a lot of action.
