Lightweight tents to suit the hiker, dome tents for the holiday camper and cabin tents to accommodate large families. Here you will find the best tent to suit your particular purpose.  Owners of Bairnsdale Camping and Outdoors - Wendy and David - will NOT stock a tent, that they are not prepared to use themselves.


 Vehicle awnings provide instant shelter.

Beach Domes

We are all aware that we have to protect ourselves from the sun. Beach Domes are an excellent way of bringing shade to wherever your are enjoying the outdoors.

Canvas Tents

Canvas Tents are simple and fast to pitch.  In a single room canvas tent it is usual for there to be a centre pole.  In some cases an optional internal side pole kit can be purchased as an alternative to a centre pole.  BCO does not normally have in stock two room tents - however we are happy to order on your behalf.

Dome Tents

Dome Tents are the most versatile tents on the market.  They range in size suitable for 2 adults to 14 adults.  From one room to multiple rooms. They should have an inner tent that keeps out the insects and an outer fly that keeps out the rain.  They normally have fibreglass poles, although there is a range of tents that have metal poles for added strength.

Hiking Tents

Hiking Tents are high performance and lightweight for the serious hiker.  They have a small pack down size making them suitable for the overnight or extended tourer to pack up inside their hiking pack.

Instant Up Tents

Instant Up Tents go up in a matter of minutes.

Privacy Shelters and Accessories

Privacy Shelters come in many forms. Pop-ups to construction frames. Single privacy shelters can double as a toilet tent or shower tent, whereas a ensuite double can be used as both at the same time, or as a shower tent and change room.
