The kids’ version of ARB’s classic SkyDome swag is three quarters the length of the full-size version, and measures 750mm in width by 1800mm length. These swags are designed for kids up to 12 years old and come in two colours – Fourby blue and Ariel purple, and come with popular kids’ characters printed along the sides – just the extra motivation you sometimes need to get the littlies excited to head bush!
Exceptional in wet conditions, these swags feature a heavy duty PVC base with welded seams for extra waterproofing. Top quality canvas is used all round, ensuring many years of use. A waterproof base extends for 75mm up the sides of the swag to prevent water leakage from the ground.
This swag includes a very comfortable 63mm corrugated foam mattress, sure to help the kids nod off quickly after a tough day on the tracks. YKK zips and fitted mosquito nets feature on all doors and windows, while four internal pockets have plenty of space for drink bottles, torches and other items.

The updated 5th edition of Hema Maps’ Kimberley Atlas & Guide is designed to help you make the most of your visit to this remarkable part of Australia. With detailed coverage of the Gibb River Road, Broome, Kununurra, Purnululu (the Bungle Bungles) and many other famous destinations, it ensures you won’t miss the ‘must-see’ attractions, but it also describes some of the lesser-known areas.
The guide features the top 10 4WD trips in the region as well as a detailed road atlas of the Kimberley and town maps of Broome, Kununurra, Derby, Halls Creek, Fitzroy Crossing and Wyndham. The guide also features detailed inset maps showing fuel, camping and rest areas as well as stunning photography by Carlisle Rogers.
According to Carlisle, “The Kimberley is right at the heart of the dream of outback travel. The colours here, the people, the gorges, the ancient reefs jutting incongruously out of red earth…it is a fantasy of water and desert. No other place on earth draws me like the Kimberley, and its beauty is impossible to capture completely on film, or in words. Let’s not forget, of course, that the journey here across the centre of the continent is worth it alone…and the payoff is life changing.”
A journey to the Kimberley is bound to change your life, but proper guidance is essential. Carlisle noted, “A traveller without a map is just wandering. And while there’s an esoteric beauty to wandering, you’ll miss so much here without the guidance, on the ground experience and accurate, up-to-date mapping that Hema provides. Having track descriptions, updated contact information for stations and beautiful photography of the region at your fingertips, it is much easier to plan your trip, and to keep track of where you’re headed once you get out there.”
“One of the things that sets Hema apart from just about any other guide book publisher, or map purveyor, is their steadfast dedication to accuracy and quality of information. From updated information on which tracks are open or closed to the latest data on parks, stations, tours and guides, you can safely rely on the guys at Hema. As always, it was amazing to be a part of this process. These guidebooks have informed and inspired me for years. I’m grateful to be part of inspiring the next generation of explorers.”
