This isn’t one of those flimsy lightweight tarps that claim to have durable hardware, the Kookaburra Heavy Duty Dura Green Tarp actually has reinforced corners and is made with tough materials. It’s a great all-rounder.
Heavy-duty moulded plastic is sewn into the corners and 3mm polypropylene rope welded around the edges. This is all teamed up with UV stabilised fabric and rust-proof aluminium eyelets at 60cm intervals… no wonder it’s got a tonne of uses!
Perfect for temporary shade, covering the trailer or the kid's sandpit, or as a camping groundsheet, the kookaburra Dura Green Tarp will stand up rigorous use and put up with continuous outdoor exposure.

How many poles are needed to secure a 2.4m x 3.6m sheet? Thanks

It will probably depend on what you want to do, and how you want to do it, but you'll need at least 2 for an A-frame style shelter, or up to 6-8 if you're trying to set it up with a flat top.

How to repair?3 answers
One of the eyelets of my tarp has come out. I've seen the eyelet replacement kits, but what would be the best way to repair the damaged area where the eyelet needs to go? Do you sell any special tape or patches that would work well with these tarps? Thanks!
Hi Leece - apparently type B is only for vinyl, and these tarps are polyurethane. Would type A be more appropriate? Thanks again.
Leigh - Perth(3 years ago)
Good spotting, I based my advice on Tarps being listed on the Type B patch, but I can see that Type A is the correct type for polyethylene as you indicate.

How many poles 4.88x6.12 answers
Hi, just wondering how many poles you would recommend for the 4.88x6.1 size tarp?
Dee - Cairns(4 years ago)
These tarps have eyelets every 60cm so there's a variety of ways you can use them with poles. I'd recommend at least 6 poles, 4 shorter and 2 longer so you can make a peak along the centre line which will stop water from pooling on the roof. You might even want to add an extra pole in the very middle and one of the Tarp Savers for that if you expect to see a lot of rain. Don't forget to add guy ropes for all the poles as well!

Tarp size for tent's ground floor1 answer
HI, the base of the tent is 2.4m x 2.4m, Can you advise what size of the tarp should I purchase to put it underneath of the tent? Warm regards,
Jos - Kuraby(4 years ago)
I'd suggest that you go for the 8 x 10 ft Kookaburra Dura Green Heavy Duty Tarp. Just make sure that you fold any excess tarp under the tent, don't leave it hanging out because it will create pools of water under your tent.

Why is the size 2.44x3.05 actually not that size? Elsewhere on the same page it is listed as 2.31x2.95
Yolande - Pooraka(5 years ago)
The difference in size can be a little confusing... One is the 'cut' size, meaning the total size of the piece of material before it is sewn. The other is the 'finished' size, the dimensions of the fabric once the edges have been folded over and sewn. It is confusing and I'm not sure why manufacturers do this, but that is the explanation.

How many poles and ropes I need?1 answer
I have a Coleman Gold series 10 person which comes with 6 poles and a bunch of guy ropes.
I want to use this tarp instead the shade protection from the tent. How many additional poles and guy ropes I need to set this 3x3m tarp up?
Felipe - 4169(6 years ago)
If you'd like to set up this tarp as some shade over your Coleman Instant Up 10 GoldÂ tent, I'd recommend that you purchase some seperate poles and guy ropes.Â
For poles we'd recommend using four of theÂ Alloy Pole in the 230cm size from Poles Apart, as you can extend them to reach over your tent, and use them with the 3.65 x 4.88 size tarp - as that's going to best cover the dimensions with aÂ little extra room to spare.
As for guy ropes,Â we'd recommend using 8 but you can always add more depending on where you're set up. Zempire make some good canvas ones that come in a pack of four which you check out here, so you could get two or three packets depending on whether you want extra to be on the safe side.Â

UV rating1 answer
What is the UV rating of this tarp? I am choosing between this and the Oztrail camper fly, and this tarp looks like a better UV protection than the camper fly. Please confirm. How about rain?
Robin - Burwood East(6 years ago)
The Kookaburra Dura Green Heavy Duty Tarp does not have a UV rating, but it is made from UV stabilised fabric, and is silver coated to reflect light - so it should be really effective at deflecting the sun. There is no waterhead rating on this tarp, but it does say on the packaging that it is waterproof - so it should hold up in rainy conditions.Â
I can't confirm whether the Dura Green Tarp has a higher UV rating than the Oztrail Camper Fly as they both don't have official ratings, butÂ I could take an educated guess and say that due to the thicker fabric, and silver coating on the Dura Green, it will be slightly more effective than the polyester ofÂ theÂ Camper Fly.Â
The Camper fly doesn't have a waterhead rating, but it's made from UVtex fabric which has been given aÂ 2000mm waterhead rating by Oztrail on their other products, so we could guess that it would be the same rating for the Camper fly.Â
Both will provide you with protection from rain, but the Dura Green Tarp probably has the edge for UV protection.Â

How many D rings on each side?1 answer
Tony - HOLLAND PARK, QLD(6 years ago)
These tarps have eyelets every 60 cm Tony, I don't have them all out of the packaging to count them individually, but you can assume that the 4.88m side has 8 eyelets, and the 6.1m side 10. Hope this helps.
Ben - Snowys(6 years ago)
Are the eyelets on all four sides .or just on the two length sides.1 answer
Peter - SYDNEY, NSW(6 years ago)
G'day Peter - There are eyelets on all four edges of this one. At roughly 60cm intervals. They're a really versatile tarp because of this. Cheers, Paul
