There is a wonderful array of local places to stay during Fairgrounds. There’s luxurious family glamping on-site in the Fairgrounds Pop Up Hotel and our beautiful pre-assembled all ages Rivercamp. Alternatively, we have preferred independent accommodation partners who have a selection of amazing holiday rentals from the bush to the beach.

Fairgrounds Rivercamp

Rivercamp is our pre-assembled all ages campsite. It’s nestled right on the riverbank in a scenic woodland area. When you park your car in the adjacent car park and arrive in this beautiful location to be shown to your tent, all set up and waiting for you, you’ll feel a million miles from the city but you’ll actually only be a five minute shuttle ride away from Fairgrounds. Too easy!

Supervised swimming hours are:

 Friday 3pm to 8pm
Saturday 8am to 5pm
 Sunday 8am to 12pm

Swimming at Rivercamp is not permitted out of the supervised periods
