Camping

We’ve got three Festival camping options available:

Campgrounds (self-catered)

This option is available to those who supply their own swag, tent, caravan, camper, RV etc., with both powered and unpowered sites up for grabs. To help keep like-minded patrons together, campers can elect to stay in either the Family/Quiet Zone (with a late night noise curfew) or in the Groups Zone (no curfew). Whichever zone is chosen, there are three campsite sizes to consider:

  • Large (powered or unpowered): 14m x 7m
  • Medium (unpowered only): 7m x 7m
  • Small (unpowered only): 3.5m x 3.5m

Rent a Tent (pop-up village)

Enjoy camping but won’t have all your gear with you? Don’t need the hassle of setting up your own site? Rent a Tent in our pre-constructed pop-up village! Every tent is fully floored, carpeted, and fitted with an internal 12V light, and you can hire a comfort pack (including bedding, pillows, camp char, esky and table) or simply BYO. We’ve got sites to accommodate groups of 2, 3, 4 or 6.

Glamping (full-service luxury bell tents)

Looking for a little something extra from your camping experience? Stay in a beautifully styled 5m Hills Glamping bell tent for four, including bedding, linen, cushions, towels, rugs, solar lighting, and much more.

Mareeba/Tablelands

Not into onsite camping? Fear not! There are some fantastic accommodation options right across the Atherton Tablelands. From AirBnbs to resort style lodgings at Lake Tinaroo, a variety of daily express shuttles will operate between key locations and the Festival (precise route details and times to come) or you can choose to drive yourself and park onsite. For the inside scoop and personalised advice on accommodation around Mareeba and the Tablelands, contact Janet Greenwood at the Mareeba Heritage Museum and Tourist Information Centre on (07) 4092 2906 or visit@mareebaheritagecentre.com.au.
