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


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


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


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).


Groups of 4 campsites or more may contact us to reserve site location. This can be done by contacting Linda in advance on 


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


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


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


There are water taps located around the camp grounds, with potable water available for festival campers to refill from.  No hooking up is possible.


If arriving between 8am to 6pm 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. No arrivals after 9pm.


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.


There is an RV dump point at the Tara Lagoon Parklands, right next door to the festival grounds.  Due to the large number of people using this dump point during the festival we ask that you please make use of a dump point before arriving in Tara.


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.
