    Thanks Col. I believe there is hot water available????? Can you confirm? Sorry no showers as it is really just a local business premises not a dedicated camping ground.

    The site has a large sealed parking area which is great for times when it is wet, otherwise there is also a large grassed area.

    This 2015 map gives you a bit of an idea on location. The Rainbow Power Company is situated next to the Bopwlo and the Caravan Park on the cnr of Sibley St. and Alternative Way. It is also where the Konvoy finishes so very handy, just park up and stroll up to the Village to enjoy the festival. Camping is quite expensive in the public area for this weekend and we are truly grateful to the Rainbow Power Company for allowing the Konvoy to use their premises. A hat is handed around for a thank you donation which the Rainbow Power Company nominates a local organisation as the recipients. I think it's Col that usually organises this :D

    Just saw this link posted on our local FB page . I have never seen this footage before.

    I can assure you that what happens to the Kombi that is shown after the parade will not happen to yours. This Kombi is local and doesn't even come in the Konvoy. It is used as a mascot for MardiGrass.

    Think there is hot water to the sinks for dishes washing . Certainly no shower
    Maybe sort a communal bucket shower in camp. It is a hippy type festival :eek::D

    The footy campground has showers but best of luck getting a hot one[from experience]
    think they also charge 30 a night ea?? and if it rains its either muddy or gets closed.

    Hence why I recon its great that Rainbow power are happy to have us camp there.
    They only suggested a gold coin donation when first discussed and it goes to local charity.
    They are happy to support the festival and have us there.

    Based on the costs anywhere else with lesser standard of parking and further away we usualy throw in whatever people wish.
    Suggested has been $5 ea or 10 a kombi as a minimum.
    Personally think $10 ea is cheap and indicates our appreciation
    Someone will organise a whip around early sunday morn as people stagger out of their kombis

    Please ensure that the grass isn't torn up and the site is checked and left clean so that we continue to have the advantage of close and secure parking for our kombis
