The following information is a basic idea of the camping sites available for those who would like to camp at the main Event site. The layout, as on the plan now, can be adjusted as the time for the Event gets closer, to best cater for the members.

Onsite Accommodation

Main Event Site Accommodation and Camping and RV Sites:

#1 Main Camping Sites: Non Powered. Camp sites at 6m x 9m = 450.

# 2 Camping Sites: Powered. Camp sites at 6m x 6m = 55. The area will fit more in. This area can be part used for tent city. There are other areas on site to use if needed. Two are indicated on the plan but we can extend our camping sites even further south of the oval if the need arose.

# 3 RV Sites: Powered. RV sites at 9m x 6m = 128. We have left a 12m roadway between the rows for easy access. We could also use the area, as marked on the plan, at the western end of the oval for RVs as this area has power and water.

Temporary Ablution blocks: We have set out a basic layout for the purpose of giving a fair indication of what is possible with the area we have available. The layout can be adjusted as needed for the best result at the time of the event. Some will also be disabled friendly.
