This year we have 4 camping zones as outlined below.
Motor Village (For RVs & Caravans over 6m)
This area is for people in Caravans & RVs and is located near The Sanctuary.
It is mandatory for all RVs & Caravans over 6m in length to park in this area.
The area is flat and easily accessible by larger vehicles with wide turning circles.
YOU MUST PURCHASE AN RV & CARAVAN VEHICLE PASS FOR THIS AREA. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE CORRECT CAR PASS YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE IT AT THE GATE.
The Grove (Walk In Camping)
This section is reserved for ‘Walk In’ Camping. It has shady, established grounds and is centrally located.
It’s best for those who want a lush camping experience and don’t require a vehicle to form part of their camping space.
Parking is located a short walk from the allocated camping zones. Roadways are for pedestrian and emergency access only.
The Paddock (Freestyle Camping)
This area is best for big groups wanting to camp together and party crew wanting to camp with their car or caravans that are under 6m in length.
Suitable for 2WD and 4WD vehicles.
The Linga Longa team have worked hard this year to sow seed, groom and green-up this space. It’s been a wet winter and it’s looking great.
We expect it will be a much more comfortable experience than it was for those who endured the Mars like conditions of 2020.
The Sanctuary (Family Camping)
This camp zone is reserved for families with children and those who want to camp with family groups.
Caravans and RV’s under 6m are allowed in this area however a vehicle towing trailer or caravan under 6m vehicle pass is required.
We respectfully request that if you’re not a family or camping with a family that you leave the Sanctuary tickets for people who are.
As always we suggest planning your experience and preferred camping section in advance, purchasing the correct tickets for the area you want to camp in and those wishing to camp together with friends must arrive in convoy to ensure grouping.
Our friendly traffic wardens will be there to direct everyone to a suitable campsite. Please be kind to them and follow these guidelines to help us help you have a great experience.
Camping for the full 3 days is included in the cost of your event ticket. You can set up camp from 12pm on December 30, and we ask you are packed up and out of the venue no later than 12pm January 2.
Campervans, motorhomes and caravans are welcome however, all flammables must be removed before the event, including gas bottles. Please also note you are not guaranteed to camp near your friends in a campervan or caravan, so please try to arrive with all of your friends at the same time to ensure you’re close together.
Once you arrive you are asked to not leave the event site, unless there is an emergency. If you do need to leave the site, please find one of our camp rangers who will assist you to safely leave the grounds.
Please note, if you do leave you will not be permitted to re-enter the event.
Unfortunately, we cannot take responsibility for any lost or stolen items so please leave your valuables at home or lock them away.
A few tips and tricks:
Avoid setting up next to vehicle exhaust.
Keep your campsite free of flammable material and rubbish (use bins provided).
Don’t leave your vehicle running longer than necessary.
No gas bottles (including fridges, burners and kegs that require cylinders).
Bring garbage bags to store your rubbish in and take back once the event is over.
No cooking/heating appliances. There re plenty of affordable and delicious food options – so no need to bring your cooking gear – why not have a real break!
Mark your tent so you can find it easily at night.
Be nice to your neighbours –
- If noise of any form from your campsite is bothering your neighbours, at any time during the event, you will be asked to quieten down or turn your music down. If you do not reduce you noise levels, you will either be moved to the outer-most part of the campgrounds, or asked to leave. You can play music and have fun at your campsite, but you cannot annoy your neighbours. Introducing yourself to your neighbours when you arrive is a good way to deal with nuisance before it happens.
We are not offering glamping this year. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
