Gate opening times are available here.

C Campground opens on Wednesday 18 March.

All Campgrounds open on Thursday 19 March (A, B, C).


If you are driving to the festival please do not arrive until the camping gates open. There is no camping or parking on Paynes Road at all in the lead up to gates opening. It is a designated clearway and authorities will be on location to issue fines and move patrons on. If you have planned to arrive early, check out and for other local campgrounds you can hold tight in!

Gate opening times announced soon!


All campsites have an allocation of 1 vehicle per site (Small sites and The Inn sites go to a designated carpark) so all additional cars will have to go to Overflow Parking. Overflow parking is $25 per vehicle for Wednesday – Monday (inclusive) for C Campground and Thursday – Monday (inclusive) for A & B Campgrounds inclusive and must be pre-purchased.

If you do not pre-purchase an Overflow Parking Pass there is no guarantee that you will be able to park your extra vehicle. If you do arrive with an extra vehicle and there is a parking spot available in the Overflow Parking area, it will cost $50 to park your vehicle.


An allocated pick up/drop off area for patrons in private vehicles (e.g a friend or family member dropping you off) and shuttles will be available this year. It is located at the entry to main venue off Champions Way. Please follow signage and CMC staff direction. A shuttle service to take you to the campgrounds will be operating on Thursday and Friday, 9am – 7pm.


If you are arriving by taxi or by a rideshare service like Uber, please follow the signage at the venue and get dropped off at the RIDE SHARE/TAXI drop off. A shuttle service to take you to the campgrounds will be operating on Thursday and Friday, 9am – 7pm.
