If the answer is insufficient for your enquiry please Contact BQ.
- Do I need to bring all my own camping gear?
Unless you are taking the Easy Campese/Speedy Campese tent option or the AllTrails Luxury Package option – you need to bring your own camping gear (i.e. tent, sleeping bag, camping mattress). The cost of your campsite is included in the entry price. If you are looking for a little luxury along the way consider arranging your own motel/pub/van park accommodation – see the Local Accommodation Options Info Sheet for some ideas – but remember you have to get your luggage to and from each day.
- Is my camping equipment included in the 22kg baggage limit?
Yes, it is. However, your bike, helmet and bike accessories such as panniers, lights, water bottles etc are not part of it.
- How do I wash my clothes while on the ride?
Clothes washing facilities are available on the campsite. They are pretty basic - just tubs and water and you need to BYO laundry detergent. Some towns also have Laundromats – see the What’s On in the Guide for their location.
- I like to have a cuppa in the evenings, should I bring a campstove?
Tents are generally made of highly flammable material so fires are not allowed on the campsite – this includes camp stoves. But free tea, coffee and Milo is available from the Tea and Coffee bar (next to the catering marquee) from 5.30 to 7:30am and 3 to 10pm.
- I've got friends in town, can they come and visit me?
Friends or family may visit you on the campsite but you must accompany them at all times and they may not stay overnight. Visitors will not be served meals and cannot enter the Café area (this is a requirement of the event liquor licence).
