In 2024 we will be offering a camping option once again right next to the start/finish area. If camping is something you’re interested in, please see the information below. Spots are limited, so get in quick!
Please note caravans will not be allowed. If you have a caravan, please contact the local Nabawa Tavern. If you camp at the tavern, you MUST be self sufficient as facilities are not provided. Click HERE to get in touch with them via Facebook.
What are the camping options?
We will have two options available for participants;
1. Bring your own small camper/rooftop tent. These spots are on harder ground so they won’t be suitable for tents. Each camp bay will be 5 meters wide by 10 meters long.
2. Bring your own tent to pitch up. We will have a grass area where you can camp in a tent. The same facilities will be provided. (Tents are not provided)
What facilities are provided?
All campers will have access to showers and toilets during the stay. Security will also be onsite.
Please note that the camp sites are unpowered so you will need to have your own power if you need it.
Where are the nearest shops?
The closest shops are in central Geraldton, so we would recommend bringing supplies or stocking up prior to heading to Nabawa.
The town does have a tavern right next to the finish line though, as well as a self service fuel pump.
How much does it cost?
$60 per person for 2-nights (Friday 9th August 10am – Sunday 11th August 10am). The cost goes towards having the basic facilities onsite such as showers and toilets, along with other administrative costs.
Please ensure you select the correct number of people camping when registering as this will be checked when you arrive.
Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately no, once you have purchased a camping spot, we will be unable to provide a refund for this even if you have purchased the Change of Heart.
What else do I need to know?
Camping is based at the event site. Staff will be onsite preparing for the event until late Friday evening and from approximately 5am on event day. Whilst we will endeavour to be as quiet as possible, you may be woken early. Feel free to jump in and give us a hand at any time!
How do I register to camp?
All bookings are done online through the registration platform either when you complete the registration or after via the registration store. A valid registration is required in order to book.
Please note: only one person needs to book the camping as part of the registration if you are in the same tent/camper.
I’ve already registered as a participant in the event?
If you have already registered as a participant in the 2024 event, then you can easily add the camping option to your registration. Click HERE to find the camping options and add it to your registration. You will need your Race Roster login for this or your confirmation number from your registration.
I’m not a registered participant yet?
You will need an event entry in order to book a camping spot. Simply go through the registration form HERE, select the event you would like to do and then fill out all the questions. Then be sure to select one of the two camping options towards the bottom of the page. Make sure you select the correct number of people camping with you.
