Certified Self-Contained Motorhome/Caravan Parking

There is a dedicated area for Certified Self Contained Motorhomes and Caravans to park overnight over the weekend. $10.00 per vehicle, per night for event ticket holders - no need to book, plenty of space and there will be a dedicated space with a great view of the distant mountains.

Motorhomes and caravans are welcome from midday on Friday 20th of April to stay until 10am on Monday the 23rd. Cash payment for event tickets and parking can be purchased on arrival.

If you arrive on the Friday afternoon, a collector will visit you Friday evening and take full payment for both event tickets and overnight fee - as you'll be inside the event grounds. 

Local Lions will be handling the parking and motorhomers can arrive through the main gate. If you arrive during event opening hours you will be charged for event tickets by the Lions and a separate collector will come round in the evening to collect the overnight staying fees.
