CAMPING FEE:  Stay tuned for announcements about tickets and camping fees for 2019 Festival.

CAMPING DATES:  Access to the showgrounds for camping will commence a few days before the event.  Dates and more details to be announced closer to the 2019 Festival.

* If you are a club wishing to book 10 sites or more, or to reserve the limited wheelchair camping, please contact Merv & Linda well in advance on [email protected]

AMENITIES:  With thanks to Toowoomba Portable Toilets, we'll have excellent toilet and shower facilities available for festival campers.

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

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 at certain times.

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

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

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 🙂

Please join us at the community fire pits for happy hour from Wednesday  - 4pm onward. BYO and join in chatting with your fellow campers.
