When you hit beaches and campsites all over the country you’d be blind if you didn’t see a sea of shelters blazoned with the famous blue, black and white Adventure Kings logo.

There are 2 main categories of all weather shelter produced by this Industry leader.

The first category of shelter is the brand’s premium 4×4 Awnings. These awnings are built to last using a 170GSM ripstop polyester that is fully waterproof and UPF 50+ rated by a NATA accredited facility ensuring that less than 2.5% of harmful UV light transmission which is the highest UPF rating a material can get!

There are heaps of reasons to add an Adventure Kings Awning to your vehicle; but the greatest reason everyone should include an Adventure Kings awning on their setup is purely convenience.

With the ability to set up a 4×4 side awning in literally just a few seconds you can have instant waterproof and UV proof shade, wherever you can get your vehicle.

Available in 1.4m x 2m, 2m x 2.5m, 2.5m x 2.5m, 2m x 3m you can choose a size to suit your setup!

Nearly any campsite can reap the benefits of a vehicle mounted roll out awning, and by setting up your awning coupled with an awning wall over your campsite you can add even more of waterproof protection and shelter from the elements to a simple swag camping setup.

An awning is perfect for beach runs, or even trackside lunch breaks, or even smoko for tradies and is built with solid metal knuckles at the hinging points so it won’t break apart like some of the competitor brands that use cheaper plastic knuckles.

Permanently mounted to your vehicle an Adventure Kings awning is the perfect shade and shelter solution for nearly any setup, and best of all you don’t need to remember to pack it!
Australia’s second favourite setup is the Adventure Kings gazebo!

A Kings gazebo is built seriously tough, with a hammer tone finished steel frame for extra durability. It allows some more flexibility to your setup and allows you to add shelter to any setup regardless of whether you can get your vehicle there or not.

The flexibility afforded by a gazebo allows you to setup a solid base camp and leave everything put, whilst you do short side trips, to explore the area, restock food and drinks, go grab some ice, or even if you are at a campsite you simply cannot drive into.

The gazebo canopy offered by Adventure Kings is a 420D Oxford weave polyester. This fabric is very simple but very durable and offers excellent longevity and unlike nylon won’t stretch or sag when it is wet!

On top of being durable and heavy duty, this polyester has a protective polyurethane coating on the inside offering an even more waterproof setup for even heavy rain, and is accredited with the same UPF50+ rating of the Adventure Kings Awnings offering superior protection from Australia’s harsh sunshine.

The adjustable legs allow you to lift the canopy to a max head height of up to 2380mm with the peak of the roof apex being an additional 940mm higher for additional roof “slope” allowing water to flow off without pooling up or adding any strain to the strong and heavy duty hammer tone steel frame.

The adjustable legs also allow the Adventure Kings Gazebo, to be set up on uneven ground, perfect for setting up on the beach or in rocky/hilly country.

The Adventure Kings Gazebo comes available in 2 sizes, the most popular size is the 3m x 3m gazebo, it is compact and easy to set up making it perfect for market stalls job sites, campsites and even smaller backyards.

The larger option available in the Adventure Kings range of gazebos is the 6m x 3m gazebo which shares all the same features of its popular little brother whilst offering double the shade and shelter.

When you consider all the benefits of setting up an Adventure Kings gazebo or unrolling a Kings 4×4 awning there isn’t a better value shelter for any outdoor application.


Adventure Kings works hard to provide the best value shelters at the best prices possible, allowing more Australians to afford getting away to their dream campsites for less!
