The campgrounds feature amenities including gas fired hot showers, sustainable composting toilets and drink water stations, plus access to our General Store where you can buy supplies.
Got your own kit? If you’re bringing your own canvas, please leave gas bottles, BBQs or glass anything at home. They won’t make it past the gate keepers.

To book any of the accommodation options please make sure you purchase both an Event and Camping Ticket for each person in your group.
Let the fun begin!
You can arrive after 10am on Wednesday 17 July. However please do not arrive any earlier as we will not have staff available to admit you to the campgrounds. On Wednesday, campers can arrive between 10am – 10pm and between 7am – 10pm on Thursday 18 July and Friday 19 July. If you’re arriving on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 July, 2019 you can check in from 8am – 8pm. Please stick to these times
Yes. A Camping Ticket is separate to an Event Ticket. You need to purchase both if you plan to camp onsite.
Each Camping Ticket is per person. That means each individual staying at your campsite will need to purchase a Camping Ticket.
The Meadow is our family friendly campground, tucked away from the rest of the campers so you have some privacy when you’re trying to put your kids to sleep. The Meadow features some handy extras like play equipment to keep them busy, a microwave, change table and more.
Sometimes at festivals, things get left behind. And that’s just not good enough. Since there’s currently only one planet Earth on offer, we want every single camper at Splendour to leave no trace. Zero footprint. Zilch. Recycling facilities will be available throughout the venue in the entertainment area and campgrounds. Please recycle where possible.
In addition, are the important points below.
Sorry but you won’t be able to choose your own camping spot. When you arrive at the campgrounds our friendly Camping Marshals will show you where to set up camp. Please remember that space is tight in the campgrounds so please don’t bring the kitchen sink.
None of the Splendour campsites are powered. You can bring your own generator, BUT we have a strict noise curfew between 12am and 8am in the campgrounds and your generator MUST be turned off between these hours. Liquid fuels are permitted but must be stored with Splendour staff while not in use and you are not permitted to bring gas bottles.
If you want to camp with your pals you must arrive at the same time. Campsites will be allocated by Splendour staff. You cannot save or ‘bags’ campsite space for friends arriving later. To camp together you must arrive together, so plan to arrive as a group. Friends that stick together, camp together!
Sorry, but this one is non-negotiable. Every year loads of people hassle us about being “just one more person”. But the reality is the campground has a set capacity that we legally need to stick to, so once camping tickets sell out we simply cannot put anyone else in there.
As well as onsite Camping Marshals, there will also be security personnel near the camping areas. The marshals’ campsite for each area is clearly marked with large signs. All queries and concerns should be directed to your marshals. Despite the best efforts of our staff and security personnel, there are still people who steal other’s belongings. Our advice – don’t bring valuables at all.
NO! NO! NO!…… and just for extra clarity NO!
Alcohol in the campgrounds is strictly prohibited. IF you ignite fireworks or flares you will be removed from the site and may be the subject of police action.
When you’re packing, remember this – what comes in, must leave with you!
Ditch the elaborate set ups and keep it simple.
Pack a reusable water bottle and fill it at one of our water re-fill stations.
Pack a reusable coffee cup to use for that morning kick starter.
Pack a tote bag to go shopping in our General Store and our many market stalls.
And pack a forever tent. At Splendour we believe a tent is for life, not just for a festival. It’ll keep you warmer, hold up better in the elements and give you a tent load of happy #SITG memories! If you try to save money by buying cheap, you’ll end up paying for it in the long run because you’ll be replacing your gear so often. Buy a keeper and kindly take it home with you when you leave.
NO. Once parked, your vehicle CANNOT be moved again until you depart the festival.
The campgrounds are located in close proximity to the festival entertainment precinct. Please use the festival shuttle buses if you wish to leave the festival site. Festival shuttle buses will run between the festival site and surrounding locations including Ocean Shores, Brunswick Heads and Byron Bay from Wednesday. Fares apply.
During the festival, our General Store is available onsite for basic supplies. Food stalls will be operating in the campgrounds from Wednesday and will operate through until Monday afternoon.
Toilets and warm showers will be located throughout the campgrounds. Please be kind to the environment when using our award-winning facilities as there is no permanent water supply to the site. This means all water has to be purchased and transported on and off site. North Byron Parklands has some of the finest, environmentally friendly compostable toilets and low-flow gas fired showers that have been purpose built just for you!
No. Patrons are not permitted to have campfires or fires of any kind at Parklands campgrounds. If you light a fire you will be removed from the site and may be the subject of police action. Which would be a huge bummer. So, rug up instead.
Butane gas cylinders are NOT permitted at Splendour in the Grass. Only gas bottles that are professionally installed in purpose-built RVs and Caravans are permitted.
Anyone in the campgrounds that is 17 years of age or under MUST be accompanied by parent or guardian that we strongly recommend is 25 years of age or older.
We’ve worked hard over the last few years to make sure everyone has a soft landing at North Byron Parklands, and this particularly includes our camping buddies who chose to come by bus, private shuttle, taxi, Uber or pushbike. We have a dedicated ‘On Foot’ Camping area for those without cars; right near the Bus Stop, close to the festival entrance and surrounded by like-minded foot soldiers who have reduced their impact on the world by not bringing a car.
Put simply, NO. In the Splendour campgrounds, vehicles are parked in a way that makes leaving on the Sunday very difficult. Vehicles are parked tightly end-to-end and your departure is dependent on the vehicle ahead of you leaving first, which happens after the festival on the Monday morning. If you need to leave on Sunday night and are camping, your only option is to camp WITHOUT a vehicle in the campgrounds and leave with your gear on foot. If you are camping on Sunday but plan to leave early, please consider this BEFORE purchasing a Vehicle Pass for the campgrounds.
There is loads of info online for varying types of accommodation in the Byron area, but our Other Campgrounds page is a good starting point. Apart from Byron Bay’s own campgrounds, there are also great campgrounds in the area. You can also check out our Accommodation page for links to websites offering other accommodation options.
Sorry, no. For security reasons, only those with Camping tickets or Camping wristbands are allowed in the campground. Anyone found in the campgrounds without the correct wristband will have their event wristband confiscated and will be ejected from the festival.
Items that are banned in the campground and car park:
