FESTIVAL DETAILS

(1) Total cost is $100 per couple, $60 for singles. This covers your camping and festival entry for the 3 days and nights.

(2) Booking can be made on line at www.tarafestivalncamels.org.au. I have reserved the sites but each person is to make their own booking. You do not need to add Australian Caravan Club to the booking as the organisers are only counting total numbers. You can also pay at the gate on arrival, this must be paid in cash and will be a total of $100.  

(3) You need to be self sufficient, there is no power or water available on site but there are portable showers and toilets. There is a dump point and water tap at the park next door but you may have to wait in line so please be prepared by having full water tanks before you enter the grounds. 

(4)The water in Tara is not potable so you will need to bring enough drinking water for the five days, or alternatively, purchase bottled water in the town.

(5) Dogs are welcome with the usual restrictions but must be happy to be left alone if you go off to the festival for the day.

(6) You will choose your own sites within our area so you do not need to let me know if you want sites together. If you want to be sited together, please plan to arrive together. You will not be permitted to send one or two members in to mark out enough sites for your entire branch, that is unfair to the other attendees. 

(7) The first activity is on Friday with the street parade at 9am, then the main festival area opens around 5pm with Saturday and Sunday being full days. Check the website for further information. 

(8) We will not be having any organised muster activities except Happy Hours and perhaps a morning tea on Thursday if enough people are interested. There will be plenty to do during your time there.
