Outdoor Connection Galaxy Plus Family Dome Tent
The Galaxy Plus three large bedrooms and a Sunroom, for outdoor dining and relaxing away from flies and insects, make the Galaxy Plus a real ‘Homestead’ for your family holiday.
This premium model features large rooms, high straight walls, and exceptional peak height the full length of the tent. The Hybrid Pole system that, with a square centre structure, makes this extra large tent very strong and stable while also being very simple and easy to erect – a breeze!
Four large ‘Floor to Eave’ windows and four large Omega doors open the bedrooms to the outside world to give maximum ventilation and cooling for hot Australian summer nights. Internal windows & door covers, that zip upwards from the bottom, ready privacy and also provide protection from drafts on cold winter nights.
The three side wall panels/door covers on each side can be erected and zipped together as a single long awning providing extra shade. The large end doors can also be erected as three pole awnings and can have the Optional Awning Side Walls fitted for extra shade or protection – a real homestead with extensive shady verandahs! A great feature is Outdoor Connection’s gusseted fly. Using this facility, all the awnings can be joined together to make one huge wrap-around verandah around the whole tent.

The CHOICE tent comparison of September 2011 awarded the Outdoor Connection Weekender Tent the highest score in the “What to Buy” results. The Galaxy Plus shares the same design and fabric qualities as the Weekender as well as the ‘easy to erect’ Hybrid Square pole system. This pole structure provides strength and stability, creating excellent headroom and internal space while being simple and quick to erect.
- Each end bedroom is 305 (W) x 240(L) cms (internal measurements) with straight walls that do not taper at the ends. This maximises internal space providing lots of ‘walk-around’ headroom not found in any other brand of tent. Each end bedroom has large Side Windows providing cross-flow ventilation for fully screened coolness and comfort. A large Omega screen door at each end of the tent rounds off your all-around comfort.
- The middle room is also a full 305(W) x 240 (L) (internal measurements) and can be used as a storage/living area or as a bedroom. Each end bedroom has large Side Windows, with a screen from floor to eave, providing cross-flow ventilation for fully screened coolness and comfort. A large Omega screen door at each end of the tent rounds off your all-around comfort.
- Peak Height runs the full length of the tent
- The Sunroom, 240 x 240cm, is a full mesh room attached to the front of the middle room
- The Square Hybrid Pole System combines the strength of steel upright poles with the flexibility of fibreglass poles to create a frame with exceptional strength and stability. This pole structure also means the tent has near vertical side walls providing maximum internal ‘walk-around’ space and headroom.
- Sewn-in Dividing Walls with an Omega door separate each room. The Omega Door mesh and privacy screens can be tucked away neatly in a side pocket.
- Internal window and door covers allow ready privacy and give protection from drafts on cold winter nights. The front awning of the Galaxy Plus extends around the sunroom and over the full length of the tent giving a particularly large awning area.
- 100D HiCount fabric Outer Fly. This fabric is much heavier and stronger than any other dome tent fabric. See Tent Waterhead and Fabric Weight Comparisons
- Waterproofing with a MINIMUM 3000 mm Waterhead (actually measured at 3000mm) so you stay dry even in the most severe and persistent wet weather.\
- UV-PROTEK treatment of the outer fly fabric guarantees maximum resistance to fabric degradation from the damaging effects of UV light offering longer life to your camping home.
- Durafine No-see-um Mesh is featured for all windows and doors to keep the midges and mosquitoes out.
- Pole Sleeves across the roof of the tent maximising strength and stability.
- Hybrid Pole System for maximum strength and stability and maximum headroom.
- Inner tent is breathable polyester for extra comfort and minimizing condensation inside the tent. The Inner tent has its own zippered privacy panel and mesh screening to match that on the outer fly. So that, while you have great ventilation, the tent can also be closed up from the inside if the night turns cool.
- Remember a family of four may produce more than half a litre of condensation in a night so ventilation and breathability of the inner tent is important
- Privacy Screens zip from the floor upwards on the full-length side windows so that you can control the air flow into the tent.
- Large Omega doors, with both privacy panel and insect screen, are at each end of the tent as well as in the dividing walls between the bedrooms. These doors can be fully unzipped and tucked away in a storage pocket at the side. Very neat and compact! The Omega door can also be zipped partly up from the bottom to control air flow.
- Durafine No-see-um mesh and privacy screens on all doors and windows.
- All doors and windows can be closed from inside the tent
- Large awnings are formed by side the doors on each side of the tent. The door covers can be poled out and used as individual awnings or zipped together to form one long continuous awning along each side.
- Three Pole Awnings are formed by poling out the two end doors. Outdoor Connection’s three pole awning forms a pitched structure so the awnings can be left up in the rain.
- Optional Side Walls are available for these three pole awnings. Side walls can be attached to either or both sides of the awning and be poled out to form a great extra large awning in fine weather or pegged down for extra protection under the tent awning in wet or breezy weather.
- ‘EziPak Drop-In’ Carry Bag with fold-over flaps. Two compression straps with durable Snap-Lock buckles. No more struggling to get the tent in the bag.
