SPECTATOR DIY CAMPING RULES
We have all the facilities you need to have a great camping holiday, either with your mates or your family.
You can bring your own gear just like a regular camping trip, or if you want the convenience of it all being set up for you, check out the Summernats Tent City. Note: Tent City is a pre- event online purchase only.
As always, it is heaps cheaper to purchase your tickets in advance.
Who can Camp?
Camping is only available to those who have already purchased a Season Pass eg: Entrants, Buddies, Season, Platinum Passes and is charged on a per person basis, not per campsite.
A Camping Pass must be purchased by each person camping in addition to the Season Pass.
Toilet and shower facilities are available in various locations on the campgrounds.
Spectator campsites are allocated upon arrival on a first come first served basis. Sizing of campsites vary as space is limited and recommend to bring tents only. Spectators are not permitted to bring caravans. Please use alternative accommodation.
If you have a group of friends that all want to camp together, you will need to arrive and check in altogether to be given enough space to cater for the group.
Please Note : Not all campsites are powered.
