How to choose a gazebo for camping

It’s no secret that Australian’s are blessed with incredible scenery, warm weather and some of the best camping spots… What more could you want? However, despite all its glory, the weather is known to be unpredictable at the best of times – so it’s important to be on the front foot with Mother Nature. The best way? A gazebo! Trust us, once you’ve got a goodie, you won’t go back. So to help you choose the one that’s right for you, here are our recommendations.


Whether you’re setting up camp beachside or preparing for a market day, the Deluxe Gazebo series will make sure you are protected from the elements. Our trusted OZtrail DLX frame with reinforced cross gables ensures ultimate durability when faced with strong winds. Combined with a UV resistant 300 Denier polyester canopy featuring reinforced wear points and externally bound roof line seams to enhance canopy tension, the Deluxe Gazebo is tough, durable and a proven winner. The series features four gazebo styles, ranging from the compact Deluxe 2.4 to the unbreakable, large Deluxe 6.0 to ensure every level of shelter can be met. It’ll take a scene from the movie Twister to topple this gazebo over!

Fiesta Compact

Outdoor events are made better with our Fiesta Compact series. Perfectly sized to fit in the back of most small cars and SUV’s, the lightweight Fiesta Compact gazebo is functional and easy for weekend explorations and sporting events. Featuring our new CPT frame system designed specifically for the series, the Fiesta Compact gazebo boasts our smallest pack size yet. The frame offers quick setup with a staged leg system and an open roof arch and offset frame to maximise shade coverage. The Fiesta Compact series features improved and increased water shedding capabilities, so if you get caught in sudden rain, don’t fret! The canopy rails minimise any chance of water pooling on your gazebo, so you’re free to enjoy the sanctuary your Fiesta Compact provides from any unexpected weather. The series features four sizes and colours to suit every taste and accommodate all needs – turn your outdoor adventure into a party!

Fiesta Deluxe

Love our Deluxe range, but would prefer something less heavy? The Fiesta Deluxe was specifically designed and inspired by our beloved Deluxe gazebos, but streamlined to feature a reduced weight and pack size without losing any durability or strength. The DL frame has a two stage system to maximise easy gazebo set up and reduce pack size for better transportability. The renowned, heavy duty cross gable design is installed in the Fiesta Deluxe series to protect and stabilise your shelter from windy conditions. If you’re looking for a gazebo with all the perks of our classic Deluxe range, but need something slimmer and better suited to your busy lifestyle, look no further than the Fiesta Deluxe.

Shade Max

Maximum shade? We have you covered – this range has our largest gazebos on offer. Our Shade Max 4.8 offers 4.8m of coverage while the Shade Max 6.0 stretches a massive 6m to ensure every inch of your campsite or event is protected from the elements. We’ve taken our super strong DLX frame and made it even stronger. Introducing the DLXE frame, with additional side arm extenders and 32mm tubular steel legs to ensure this huge structure remains firmly in place. Our trusted cross gable design provides extra stability to better handle extreme weather conditions. The beautiful neutral colouring makes our Shade Max a statement piece for your event, but remains highly functional too. Whether you’re hosting a party or going camping with your friends, let the Shade Max keep you all covered.
