Camping and Caravans 

Camping Pass - Each person staying onsite at Northern Bass must have a camping pass. Camping is available for 3 days, 2 days or the 31st only. The easiest way is to grab your event+camping ticket.

The NB campground has everything you need for your stay on Worsfolds Farm - food stalls, hot showers, a powder room, security and even a bar. 

To camp on-site you will need to purchase a Camping Pass as well as your event ticket. Same deal goes for those bringing campervans on-site - you will need ONE Campervan Pass per vehicle, but each person staying in the campervan will need to purchase an individual camping pass.

Camping Passes are exchanged for a camping wrist band when you arrive on site.  No camping wrist band = no access to the camp ground.

You can stay for one, two or three nights, depending on the type of Northern Bass ticket you get.  So if you want to buy a 2 Day Camping Pass you'll need the Two Day Northern Bass ticket.  

One Day Camping Pass: $30
Two Day Camping Pass: $55
Three Day Camping Pass: $65

Some notes:

  • We will assist you where we can, but you will need to carry your gear from the carpark to your campsite - so travel light!
  • We know it was an issue last year, so we have made it a major priority to sort the toilet and showers on site for this year.
  • This year sites will be marked out and will be first in-first served.
  • The campground will open at 12.00pm on the 29th for 3 day ticket holders only. The 2 day holders can arrive from 9am on the 30th and 1 day pass holders can arrive from 9am on the 31st.
