Carports are a staple of the classic Australian home

The weather in Australia can sometimes be a bit unpredictable. We’ve been known to get thunderstorms, gale force winds, blistering heat waves, freezing cold snaps and even the occasional hailstorm.

Whether you are looking to extend your existing covered garage or maybe even replace it altogether, carports are a fantastic addition to any home. A carport is a very popular choice for Australian homeowners, especially if you don’t like the idea of a garage.

Australian Outdoor Living custom designs carports to suit any style. This ensures that your carport can be a great feature of your home. Not only do carports offer protection for your vehicles, they also provide added shelter for some external areas such as your front porch.

Some homeowners prefer the convenience of a carport as opposed to a covered garage with a remote control door.

Carport Options - Best of Both Worlds


There’s nothing like the beauty and warmth of timber, outdoors. The versatility of timber allows it to perfectly complement modern or more traditional style homes.

Our timbers are sourced in the most environmentally conscious way possible. Our durable and beautiful hard woods are sourced from managed forests, while our treated pine is plantation grown.


Australian Outdoor Living steel structures are strong, durable and ideal for the harsh Australian climate. With their low maintenance nature and exceptional span capacity, steel pergolas and verandahs are the perfect bold statement.
