Embrace Nature: Why Australia Loves Clear Roof Marquees.

clear roof marquees

In Australia, our consistently great weather, especially in the warmer months of the year, is the perfect natural setting for an outdoor event. What’s more, we are also incredibly fortunate to have a truly beautiful country to call home with plenty of stunning locations to be thankful for. From the awe-inspiring coastline to dramatic cliffs and lush rainforests, it’s no wonder why clear roof marquees are a popular choice. No matter which part of the country you are living in, you can be sure that when you look out your window, you’re treated to spectacular scenery in one form or another.

With such rich climate and nature, it’s natural to want to bring these elements to the fore when you’re planning a marquee event. One of the most popular ways to do this is to utilise clear span marquees and add clear roofs as an additional extra. Not only is the inside of your marquee free of pillars and poles, when you look upwards you will see nothing but nature. Melbournians love this style of the marquee as you have all the comfort of covered space (in case it rains without notice) but still feel like you’re outdoors. It’s the perfect compromise between having an indoor or outdoor event, especially if your party is going to run into the late evening when the temperature tends to dip.

Bringing The Outdoors Indoors

The most obvious reason why clear roof marquees are a popular choice is you can truly have an indoors/outdoors party. It’s such a shame for an event to have a drinks reception outside your venue where everyone is enjoying the sunshine and the beautiful surroundings, only to be ushered indoors for the next part of the event. With clear roof marquees, you can enjoy the feeling of the outdoors with all the comforts of being indoors. It’s the perfect compromise that allows you to feel like you are still outside enjoying the weather and the views of the surrounding area.

More Natural Light 

Clear roof marquees allow the natural light to flood into your event, brightening up the space without the need for artificial lighting. Not only will this extra dose of sunlight lift the mood of your guests but the natural light is also much better if you have a photographer working on the day. Whether the event photographer is doing the rounds, you have a photo booth or your guests are trying to get the perfect selfies, natural light is always more flattering on your face.

Save Money

Running an event of any size can be expensive – especially the cost of a marquee wedding. Employing caterers, sending invitations, organising entertainment and securing a venue will all add up and then there are all the incidental costs that you need to take into account as well. A top reason why clear roof marquees are a popular choice is that they can help you to reduce some of the costs associated with your event in terms of heating and lighting. In a solid roof marquee, you will typically need heaters and lighting to ensure your guests are comfortable throughout the event. However, with the warmth and light from the sun coming through the roof of a clear marquee, you won’t have to turn on those heaters or lights until much later, if at all.


For events with a firework display, clear roof marquees are a fantastic choice. Instead of having to usher all of your guests outside in time for the display, they can watch from inside the marquee. All your guests need to do is look up and watch as the sky lights up with the flash, dazzle and colours of your firework displays. The atmosphere inside the marquee will be elevated immediately and you can be sure that the rest of the night will be one to remember.

Embrace Nature With Clear Roof Marquees

With all of us spending more and more of our time trapped in artificial environments, clear roof marquees allow you to embrace nature at your next event. Treat your guests to a more natural atmosphere with plenty of sunlight and views of the surrounding area. Let them have an outdoor party with all of the comforts of being inside and you can be sure that all of your attendees will have nothing but positive things to say after your next event.
