BUSH acknowledges the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation whose land our events take place on and whose land we work upon every day. Sovereignty has never been ceded and no treaty has ever been signed. Always was and always will be Aboriginal land.

DIRTY DETAILS

 AGE RESTRICTION 
Unfortunately this is a strictly 18+ affair. Sorry :(
 


 OPENING/CLOSING TIMES 
Will be announced about a month before BUSH
 


 WEATHER 
Weather will be hot, remember, slip, slop, slap, etc...

Stay hydrated (that means water, not beer).

This is fire season so please, no fires and make sure you completely put out your ciggies.
 

 

 GETTING THERE? 

We recommend that people travel by car. This gives you the freedom to come and go as you please.

If you don't want to take the train, but don't have a car, try posting in the facebook event for someone to carpool with. A good way to meet a new friend while doing your bit for the environment.

BY CAR 

Please download offline maps of the area as very few people will have reception after going through Warragul.

The road will be signposted with a few flags to make it easier to find.

Please be careful, this is cattle country and cows tend to escape and stand on roads!

BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Take the train from Melbourne to Warragul

We're working on organising a shuttle from Warragul to the festival site.

More details to be provided closed to the date.

MONEY

BRING CASH

there won't be an atm, it's a farm and we don't have a eftpos machine either, soz.

 WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARRIVE? 
When you arrive, you will be directed to the camping area --- please be orderly and remember that people will be coming in after you.

Find a camping site and try and keep your car out of the way
 


 CAMPING 
We have chosen a nice flat paddock for everyone to camp in. That being said, if you find an equally nice, unoccupied area you would rather camp in, feel free. However, please let one of our volunteers (in BUSH t-shirts) know; remember to be respectful of the land and property --- which we do not own --- and please close any gates that you open (to avoid cow escapees).

 

 WHAT TO PACK 
- tent/swag

- sunscreen/mozzie repellent

- bathers

- towel

- fun festive clothes

- food for lunch (only brekky and dinner will be avilable for a donation)

 


 DECORATIONS 

We want to be as shiny and pretty as possible!
 


 FACILITIES 
 There will be 5 portaloos available and many natural urinals (trees) for those who feel that way inclined. 

Note: not everyone wants to watch you wee, so go find somewhere a little bit quiet :)
 


 LATE ARRIVALS/EARLY DEPARTURES 

 If you are going to arrive late please be mindful of other people's tents, cars and things.

If you need a hand finding a camping spot in the dark please find one of our volunteers.
If you want to leave at night please let one of the volunteers know and make sure you're sober. Try and plan ahead so your car doesn't get caught behind everyone else's.
