Darche's Nebula is a 2-person freestanding canvas hybrid, purpose-built for any outdoor adventure. The Nebula's innovative design makes for a functional four-season, all-weather robust shelter for 1 or 2 people. Uniquely constructed as a single-skin canvas, the Nebula combines the space of a tent with the comfort and durability of a swag. It's also larger than most roof-top tents, making it a great alternative for anyone who's not a fan of carrying a bulky, top-heavy sleeping solution on their vehicle.

The bucket floor is extremely resilient and 100% waterproof - outperforming any lightweight 2-person tent on the market. Designed for vehicle-supported touring, the Nebula 1550 packs down to a manageable size while retaining swag-like setup time and performance. With optional awning poles, Nebula's generous rain fly storm flaps extend to create a covered area, perfect for keeping your gear dry.

With instant bedding and set-up of just over 90 seconds, the Nebula is the perfect heavy-duty companion for expedition and touring.

About Darche | Product FAQ | Warranty | Catalogue



In 1991, Darche revolutionized the traditional swag market with the introduction of the Dome style swag. DARREN O’DWYER, the founder of Darche with his wife CHERYL (DAR-CHE), embarked on an eastern Australia journey. Wanting a shelter arrangement that was quick, practical, and easy to stow, Darren used his imagination and created a canvas shell with fiberglass poles and the dome style swag was born. Darren realized he required a suitable and purpose-built factory arrangement to suffice demand. Using Australian supply chain partners, Darche became the leading swag and canvas converter in Australia.

Today Darche is proudly owned by the Charles Parsons Group who have been actively involved for over 20 years in supplying textile and trim componentry to Darche. Charles Parsons is the largest textile wholesaler in the Southern Hemisphere with offices in every capital city of Australia, including offices in Fiji, Auckland, and Shanghai. The day-to-day running of Darche occurs in a warehouse facility based in Thomastown, Victoria with a site area of more than 40,000m². Darche is overseen by experienced textile product developers, business strategists, and passionate staff who are keen outdoor enthusiasts with sound knowledge and experience to match.



We are passionate, dynamic, and keen. We enjoy the same lifestyle choices as our consumers. We strive to provide our consumers the very best value, reliability, and service and most importantly, we recognize the trust they place on us. We welcome our consumer’s feedback both positive and negative and promise to keep delivering while listening. We are mindful of our vulnerable environment and build our products to last the journey. We encourage lifetime use and if over the years it requires attention, even if it is a discontinued product, we endeavor to find a solution, on a best effort basis, to have it back and performing for you.



Darche’s growth and shortage of experienced canvas converters and local machinists have seen Darche establish reputable offshore assembly and supply chain partners. Operating from four major plants purposely selected and audited by Darche. Machinists, assemblers, finishers, toolmakers, and QA/QC supervisors are included in our required workforce of over 180 people over our four plants. It is vitally important to note Darche do not use Trading Houses or vertical arrangements offshore to source product. We at Darche develop all product prototypes in Australia and are involved from concept through to market release. Utilizing Charles Parsons accredited laboratories and leading processes, all developments are then vigorously tested at the Thomastown facility and again in real-life situations by developers.
