I’M NOT RIDING, BUT I’M COMING ALONG WITH MY PARTNER, OR HELPING OUT AS A SUPPORT CREW.

We do have the option for rider support crew to camp with competitors and each competitor can have support crew on their purchased campsite. (As long as it fits within the people allocation for each site).

If you do have more such as a few extra young ones, please get in touch with us at contact@dayinthedirtdownunder.com.au and we can help you out.

This in place to ensure actual riders have the option to take up camping first with the limited space available.

I’M JUST SPECTATING FOR THE WEEKEND CAN I CAMP ON SITE?

Due to limited space and a large number of riders, the event can only accommodate competitors and their immediate support crew for camping on site.  There will be no overflow or additional camping for spectators.

Boonah is the closest township only 10mins away with plenty of accommodation options, Ipswich and Beaudesert both only 25mins from the venue.
