Camping on-site for the full four days
of the Dreaming is by far the best way
to immerse yourself in all the festival
has to offer. There are, however, a few
things you should keep in mind when
preparing to camp at the festival.
Facilities and grounds – We are
continually improving the facilities
of our camping grounds and for The
Dreaming the showers have been
upgraded to hot water for patrons’
comfort for the June nights. All
amenitites are adequate but basic.
It will be quite cold 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 patron’s campsites unless they
require it for life support equipment.
• 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
right next to your camp.
• No fire, glass, alcohol or animals are
allowed on the festival site.
• Please do not drive around the
grounds once you have set up camp.
As The Dreaming is held in winter
expect mornings to be crisp and the
evenings chilly to very cold. The days
can range from 18° -22° to cold with a
brisk wind, and the possibility of rain or
the occasional thunderstorm. So don’t
forget the wet weather gear.
The Dreaming is a great place for a day
visit, particularly on one of our mild
winter days. Comfortable shoes, a hat
and sunscreen along with a jacket and
warm hat for the evenings are essential
for an enjoyable visit.
Car parking & camping - Free parking
on site is available for all patrons.
Please park where directed. Do not
park on footpaths or private property.
Offenders will be towed away.
EFTPOS - Available at the Festival Shop
and the General Store for cash out
with minimum purchase. Minimum
purchase is $5, and the maximum cash
out is $100.
First Aid - The first aid service is located
at the festival entrance. Please contact
security or infology if you need
Licensed Bars - Five licensed bars
are conducted strictly according to
regulations. Under-aged patrons will
not be served and no alcohol is to be
taken outside the licensed areas.
Smoke Free Zones - In consideration
of the comfort of all patrons the entire
festival except for the designated
smoking areas is a smoke free precinct.
This includes all bars, restaurants,
venues, streets and performance areas.
Mobile Phones - Telstra and Optus
mobile phones work on the festival
site. There will be a phone for the
convenience of festival patrons
at Infology (phone card required,
available at the General Store).
The Dreaming Festival welcomes
people with disabilites. We are
constantly working on ways to
improve the site and the experience
for all but we do need to advise that
the festival site and location does
offer some challenges for those with
mobility problems. The event is held
on a rural property (an old dairy farm)
and the terrain is often uneven and/or
sloping. The pathways are either dirt
or gravelled and can be difficult to
negotiate for people in wheelchairs or
with mobility problems. The disability
amenity blocks provided are clean
and sturdy, but basic. If you feel that
you would benefit from the support
of a carer while you are at the festival,
it may be possible for the carer to
receive a complimentary ticket. Such
tickets are allocated on a needs
basis. For more info please email
Together with Epic Cycles, the Festival
is offering a free luggage service for
patrons who travel to the Dreaming by
bicycle. Luggage may be dropped off at
Epic Cycles shop in Paddington in the
week prior to the Festival. We’ll collect
it on the morning of June 5 and return
it on Tuesday June 9. The service is
subject to demand, bookings essential
– phone 3368 2324.
There is a variety of routes to suit all
cyclists. The popular option is to take
your bicycle on the train to Beerwah,
Beerburrum or Caboolture stations,
and then it’s a 25 to 30 kilometre ride
to the Festival site. Detailed route
descriptions are on Epic Cycle’s website
– www,epiccycles.com.au. There will
be a Cycling to Woodford Map/Guide
available in May.
