Sure - buy it from overseas:

The exped tents are pretty good - check out the serius extreme II.

Also, typically the tunnel tents will be less than the dome tents. But when you buy one, get a 3 person if you are using it of two as the inners have a tendency to hang down a bit from the fly and creat a bit of claustrophobia.

My vango spirit 200+ is a good tent and I think I found it here in Oz for about $499. With tunnel tents, you have to think a bit more about how you set them up - ie point the foot into the likely direction of the wind, tuck them behind big rocks, etc. The also are not as strong in extreme snowloading conditions.

That said, they do offer a bit more variety in how you set them up - with our without inner, etc.

Lastly, one other option would be a black diamon Megamid. If you now how to set these up, they are bomber.
