The most commonly used tent on the streets of Melbourne is a tent, the most popular of the many shelters.
But tent camping has changed since the late 1800s, with tents now appearing in parks, parks and even residential areas, according to data compiled by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Here are the top 10 tents in Australia.

It is the most common style of tent, and its popularity is largely based on its simplicity, said David Linton, director of the Centre for Housing and Urban Research at Monash University.
”It’s a bit like camping in the woods.
There’s a lot of different tent designs, and I think it’s because of the simplicity of the design that people like it,” Mr Linton said.
”A lot of people have no idea what a tent is, and so they’ll go out and try and find one that fits them and makes them feel comfortable.
”People are very curious and curious about the tents that are out there, and they can just go out into the bush and find tents that they like.”
In a survey of 1,000 tent-camping Australians in 2017, Mr Littons research found that the most used tent is also the most affordable, with a maximum price of $1.90 per night for a one-person tent.

In 2018, there were 1.6 million tents and tents were sold in Australia (more than two million in a single year), up from 1.3 million tents in 2014.
The popularity of the tent has increased in recent decades, with more people moving into the city, particularly in Sydney.
The average house in Sydney is one of the largest in Australia with about 4,200 square metres (1,400 sq ft) of land, according a 2017 survey by Sydney Morning Herald.
This means it is possible to buy a one bedroom flat with two tents, and even a two-bedroom house with one tent.
”You can have a two bedroom house, a one bed house, you could even have a three bedroom house,” Mr Branscombe said.
However, he said the more traditional tent is still the most widely used, and is not for everyone.
”The tent is an easy way to get into a city, a city with lots of people and a lot to see, but it’s not the ideal way to camp for a long time, because you can get cold feet from time to time,” Mr Banscombe.
”So people want a tent that is lightweight and easy to use.”
Top 10 tent sizes in Australia The most common tent sizes are the standard three- and four-person, two- and three-bedroom tents, with the four- and five-person tents considered to be the most luxurious.
The tent sizes range from five to 12 metres (19-39ft) long, with many of the smaller tents being used for smaller people.
It is also possible to use smaller tents to stay warm during winter.
