Yours and Owls Festival is Friday 04 October 2019 to Monday 7 October 2019!

Here’s everything you need to know about camping:

The camp sites are located at Wollongong Surf Leisure Resort.

Each camping ticket provides accommodation for one person on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night. Check in is open between 12pm and 11pm on Friday and from 8am on Saturday. You will need to bring your own tent, sleeping bag or doona, pillow and any other necessities. Camping spaces provide space for tents only. No vehicles, camper vans, or caravans will be allowed in the camping area.

Camping spaces are allocated upon arrival. If you want to camp with your friends, you will need to arrive together if you have not already advised us in writing. Once unloaded you will be directed to park your car in the car parking area.

The spaces for tents are marked out on the grass as a guide for 2-person-tents. If you have 4 people staying in a tent together, it is okay to use 2 of the 2-person space allocations for one 4-person tent. You wont have room to put up a 4-person tent for only 2 people. WSLR caravan park staff and some festival volunteers will be around until 11pm to help with hammers for your tent pegs and showing you where to park.

You will have access to amenities at the campground including hot showers & toilets. This year there are portaloos FOR #1s ONLY on sites 421 (southern end) and site 366 (northern end) of the camping area.
