Various camping options are available on Friday and Saturday night.
Camping in St. Albans Village ($5 per vehicle)
There are a number of paddocks scattered around the St Albans village that are available for camping. Campsites will be available on a first come first serve basis. Once capacity is reached, all other campers will be directed to the day parking area on St. Albans road outside of town.
Camping at the Day Parking Area ($5 per vehicle)
Once all the campsites have filled up in the village, all other campers will be directed to the overflow/day parking area. This area is still within walking distance of the village. Camping is also charged at $5 per vehicle, with all proceeds going to the fundraising initiative of the St. Albans Bush Fire Brigade.
Premium Camping in St. Albans Village ($10 per vehicle)
The premium camping area is accessible to anyone but there is a $10 charge if you wish to make use of this campsite. It allows you to camp next to your vehicle and is located next to the river. You can pay the camping fee at the gate – alternatively you can setup camp and the land owner will drop by to collect the fee. Please note this is on private arrangement with the particular land owner and is not part of the fundraising donation for the Fire Brigade.
