Just turn up. You will find a space to camp. The
all year round places will be booked up, but there are camping

Society (A&I) plan to open the showground for camping
and parking for the MardiGrass weekend, which is May 3 &

They can also help minimise the impact of so many visitors
to the village over the big weekend.
They are offering $20 per head
campsites for the weekend, with toilets and showers, or $5
per day secure parking for day visitors. Their volunteers

at the showground your pass and site will be given to you.
Camping ground opens Thursday.
If you want camping with hot showers arrive early. There will
