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 2018.

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.

ABOUT PRE-BOOKING A SITE LOCATION: Paying for a camping site when you pre-buy your festival ticket guarantees you room within the festival camping area.  IMPORTANT: Please understand that pre-paying for your camping online DOES NOT automatically reserve you a camping site in a particular location.  Your particular site location will be allocated to you as you arrive at the entry gates.

RESERVING A GROUP SITE: 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

RESERVING A DISABILITY SITE: 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 mervnlinda@skymesh.com.au

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.

If you haven't already, submit your email address here to receive our E-News and you'll be amongst the first to hear ticket updates.

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

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 🙂
