Festival Camping

Camping Onsite

Camping onsite is all part of the fun of the Camels + Culture + Camping festival experience!


CAMPING DATES:  Onsite camping opens 8am Wednesday 31 July and closes Monday 5 August 2019.

CAMPING FEE:  $30 per site (same price if you stay 1 night or 5 nights). Camping open: 8am Wednesday 31 July to Monday 5 August 2019.

ABOUT PRE-BOOKING A SITE: Paying for a camping site when you buy your festival ticket guarantees you room within the festival camping area. IMPORTANT: Pre-paying for your camping DOES NOT reserve you a particular camping site number or location. Your  site location will be allocated to you as you arrive at the entry gates (with the exception of GROUP CAMPING).


GROUP CAMPING: Groups of 5 campsites or more may contact us to reserve site location. This can be done by contacting Linda in advance on camping.tarafestival@gmail.com 

DISABILITY SITES: Limited wheelchair/disabled access camping is available close to the festival entry.  Please contact Linda well in advance to reserve one of these sites on camping.tarafestival@gmail.com

AMENITIES:  We have toilet and shower facilities available for festival campers, located across the camping areas.

POWER:  The sites at the Festival are not powered sites. Generators are permitted from 7am to 8pm.

WATER ACCESS: Water Taps are limited on site, and please note, it is definitely not suitable for drinking

ON ARRIVAL:  If arriving between 8am to 7pm Wednesday to Friday, you will be met at the Entry Gate by our lovely volunteers and they will show you to your sites.  If arriving after these times, it's important to please read the notice board at the gate house to see where to set up your camp.  If you have pre-booked a particular site location this will be marked for you on the notice board.

CAMP FIRES:  Camp fires are permitted in self contained fire containers in all camping areas to keep you warm. It can get cold at night so bring along a few extra blankets also!  

Firewood will be available for purchase onsite.

DUMP POINTS: There are very limited dump points and facilities in Tara.  Please use dump points before arriving in Tara.

PETS:  Small pets on a leash are permitted in camping grounds, but not in the festival site.  Unless your pet happens to be a camel, it's really important you keep them well away from the racetrack - it's for the safety of our camels, jockeys and your pets too 🙂
