TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Hello all, I would greatly appreciate some expert advice on attached tent specs. I'm a light weight intending SW Tas treks so it's got to be up to it. Cheers

No offense but I wouldn't touch it with a 4 metre pole.
Every single one of those lines screams K-Mart.
PE floors are not light and are not really robust
Fibreglass wands in that size are very,very weak
Steel skewer pegs are heavy
It specs like the Coleman Bivvy tent or similar
Appreciate a link to the product too
Ve are too soon old und too late schmart

I wouldn't advise a tent with fibreglass poles for south west bushwalking.
