My friend and I will be traveling to Australia in January for a year (backpacking and following the harvest trail). We've never tried a hammock tent but are intrigued by the versatility and light weight. We're concerned about the practicality in the outback though. Is it miserable sleeping on the ground in one of these? (we're looking at Hennessy Hammock's Scout since we are small girls and on a tight budget)

We've never been to Australia so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
