BUSH ACCOMMODATION: TENT VS SWAG
The choice of swag or tent is a personal one which is dependent on your individual needs. A swag is good for shorter overnight trips and are quick and easy to ensemble, while a tent offers you more privacy and space. No matter which option you opt for there is a great range of quality products on the market to choose from.
Here are some of our favourites:
ARB SkyDome Double Swag
This is a great swag which is manufactured from 450gsm water and rot proofed canvas tested to Australian Standards. We love it because of its dual, low entry doors which roll up to meet in the middle, which as the name suggests, allows for excellent sky gazing.
Coleman 4P Instant Full Fly Tent
If you’re taking the whole family on a trip a tent is definitely a more viable option for you. We love the Coleman 4P Instant Full Fly Tent because set up is a synch and can be done in under 2 minutes thanks to the integrated frame which is pre-attached to the tent. This tent is spacious with large windows and a large front awning, perfect for the whole family.
If you’re after the convenience and ease of a swag but need the space a tent provides check out an Oztent 30 Second Tent. The Australian designed Oztent can be easily set up by one person in less than 30 seconds. Made from quality waterproof 8 ounce rip-stop-poly-cotton canvas and a heavy duty heat sealed PVC floor the Oztent packs down to a neat 45cmW x 15cmD x 2mL.
Obviously your individual needs and family size will determine which option you prefer along with the size needed. In the end it doesn’t matter what you sleep in, all that matters is that you get out there and experience what Australia has to offer.
