    GROUP/CLUB CAMPING

    The Canberra Country Blues & Roots Festival is a friend to Caravan/Motorhome groups, Country Music Clubs, Dance Groups, Horse/Pony Clubs, Vehicle Clubs and 4WD tours, so we work directly with your group to ensure your stay is memorable for all the right reasons! We know that typical horse and automotive vehicle groups stay for 2/3 nights whilst motorhome and "Grey Nomads" often stay 4 nights or more and we are happy to assist. Where possible, we gather group/club members in the same camping row/area so a common community instantly appears when vans and tents arrive. Note that the Festival camping site is "Pet Friendly", so visitors can bring and walk dogs and horses as long as on a leash. And we have over 100 horse pens! Again, sites are limited and allocated on first come first served basis so make your booking early.
