There is low cost camping available at the Pyengana Recreation Reserve approximately 15 minutes drive west of the Oceania event areas and 30 minutes drive from St Helens.
Camping will be available from January 7 until January 13. There will be options to stay longer if you wish to explore the Bay of Fires area after the carnival.
The cost will be $10 per night for adults and $5 per night for juniors (under 21), Family rate $20 per night. Facilities include exclusive use of the hall, a children’s playground, hot showers ($2 fee applies), netball/tennis court and lots of open area for other activities. This fee (less camping related unavoidable charges that OT incurs) will be forwarded to the Pyengana Recreation Ground Committee to cover the donation they expect from visitors.
Note that there are limited shopping facilities at Pyengana with the closest supermarket shopping, banking, fuel etc being in St Helens. Also note that there is currently Optus and Vodaphone mobile coverage in Pyengana - not Telstra.
Bookings are available through Eventor now.
