ACCOMODATION – camping is a great option!

The Geelong Showgrounds, alongside the racecourse, have powered sites available for $25. Onsite basic facilities incl. toilets/showers which are clean. This has got to be the cheapest option when staying in the region and you’re a stone’s throw from the fest. Ideal for campers, caravaners, recreational vehicles…
