  • Specifications
  • Instructions
  • 320g canvas Our Duraproof 320 canvas is made from a polyester/cotton blend for the simple reason that the life, performance and strength are far better than other fabrics. We use 320g canvas on all of our roofs, walls, inner's and fly's. This means you're assured of greater performance from your tent.
  • Twin stitched seams Lap felled seam construction (doubling seams around on each other) with twin stitching ensures maximum strength around the seams of your canvas tent.
  • 1100 denier PE Floor The heaviest 1100 denier PE fabric is used to withstand foot traffic for many years.
  • Gold passivate frame The gold passivate frame protects your tent from wear caused by the canvas rubbing as the composition is longer lasting than standard galvanized frames. In addition, with our unique steel frame we are able to achieve more internal space and higher roof peaks.
  • Extra wall and peak height This tent has a very high peak and wall height giving more head room and more internal air volume ensuring a cooler tent over the hot summer.
  • Metal pegging D's All of our canvas tents have heavy duty metal pegging D's for extra strength and stability. If a tent does not have quality D's the webbing can be damaged by a hammer when driving in the pegs. This can result in the webbing being torn.
  • Quality zips, ropes and poles All our tents use heavy duty coil zips, guy ropes and poles so you can be assured your tent will last for many years of exciting family camping holidays.
  • No-see-um mesh Even small bugs can't get through our no-see-um-mesh. Enjoy insect free living with ample air circulation.
  • PVC skylights/windows Skylight windows are 2-way, with clear PVC on the outside and a zipped 'privacy' screen on the inside. This adds valuable light in all weather conditions but maintains privacy.
  • Lantern hanging points Conveniently located tabs to hang LED lanterns.
  • Power cord entry Power cord entry makes it easy to plug in appliances or charge your phone when on a powered tent site.
  • Fly available separately A fly adds longevity to your tent fabric while also providing many other benefits. It helps keep the tent cooler during the day and warmer at night. It cuts down noise and reduces morning light for a more comfortable sleep. It also stops condensation in the same way a building does with inner ceiling and outer roof trapping air between the layers.
  • Sunroom available separately Kiwi Camping sunrooms are made from the same quality fabrics as your canvas tents, including large windows, a loose fit detachable floor and an extra front door. They create a fully enclosed additional room or the three walls can be removed independently to create more outdoor flow.

  • Porch: 360 x 200 (cm)
  • Floor area: 16.5m²

The Kakapo

The Kakapo

Once one of NZ's most common birds, the kakapo is now one of the rarest. The kakapo is the heaviest parrot in the world and is the only one that is flightless and nocturnal. Its wings are not useless though, as the kakapo uses them for balance when climbing.
