Carpooling is a great low impact way to
get to the festival. We recommend visiting

As The Planting is held in Autumn expect
mornings to be cool and the evenings chilly
to cold. The days can range from sunny to
quite hot with the possibility of rain.
The Fire Circles are monitored by
volunteers. They will be lit as the
sun sets and extinguished between
midnight and 2am. We ask for your
cooperation in keeping children safe
around the fires.
During The Planting people have the
unique option to camp in the festival
grounds. For The Planting the showers
have been upgraded to hot water for
patrons comfort for the cooler nights.
All amenities are adequate but basic.
It will be quite cool at night, so come
well prepared with warm bedding and
clothes, especially a jacket and warm
hat. Sunscreen and sunhat for those
warmer, sunny days should also be
considered. We suggest that you pack
an umbrella or raincoat, and suitable
shoes, in case of rain. In fact, be
prepared for any eventuality.
• There is no electricity available
on-site for patrons’ campsites
unless they require it for life support
• There is no site lock-up so all
valuables remain the responsibility of
the camper and we suggest you lock
them in your car which can be parked
next to your camp.
• No fire or glass are allowed in the
festival camping grounds.
• Please do not drive around the site
once you have set up camp.
Food will be available in the festival
precinct from Friday evening to
Monday morning for reasonable prices.
You’re also welcome to bring your own
cooking facilities to ensure you keep
your strength up over the weekend,
but please note that campfires are NOT
permitted – gas cooking is fine.
To help with the enviro projects would
you please wear closed in shoes,
sunscreen, hats and gloves. Secateurs,
mattocks, forks and
knowledge are welcome.
Water is always a precious commodity at
the festival site as we are self-sufficient.
We would appreciate it if all patrons could
help us in conserving water by limiting
themselves to one short shower per day
and check that taps are not left running or
dripping. All tap water on-site is drinkable
but for conservation and your own
convenience please bring all the drinking
water you’ll need with you from home.
Bar cups, plastic bottles, all other firm
plastics, aluminum cans, tetra-paks, dry
paper and dry cardboard go in the yellow-
lidded recycling bins. Please help us keep
the festival site clean and green. Recycling
stations can be found around the festival.
If camping, please recycle as much as
possible using the recycling stations and
bag your general waste.
Composting bins will be clearly labelled
and placed around the festival. Please
place ALL organic waste, cups, bowls,
plates and cutlery from food vendors into
the green-lidded bins so we can compost
it on site.
