We encourage carpooling and responsible drivers, if you are looking for a ride or know of any awesome ones, we encourage you to use our facebook page (will post and email a link to facebook ticket swap and ride share event page closer to event) to find travel buddies for the adventure ahead.

Motor homes, vans, camper trailers are all permitted and can be parked in designated camping blocks. For fire safety, gas bottles attached to campervans will be held at the gates and returned when you leave.

Pass outs are permitted between 11:00am and 4:00pm. No driving is permitted during the event, any car wishing to use a pass out will have to be parked at the camp perimeter. Any one caught driving on the event site will be evicted. We take no driving on site seriously for everyone’s safety. Any one arriving after sundown will be required to park in the over night car park and carry their tent in to the camping area.

Please remember that everything that comes with you must leave with you! We welcome couches and funky theme camps, but we are a small crew of volunteers that run this event so please leave no trace and take your rubbish home (not just into town).
