    Lani's confirmed small fire pits will be allowed this year provided its small, on legs & doesn't burn the grass. eg pig type, caged.
    Will depend on conditions, Fire bans, windy, high temp, etc & approval will be at management discretion as the park is surrounded with bush.
    Fire pits not permitted on the airstrip camps due to no fire hoses available in the area.

    I also received a message on Facebook that the address changed but I think they’ve probably just made a minor change. It’s still Old Bar.

    I received an offer to again be registered as a Friend of the Old Bar Beach Festival for this year & there was no mention of a venue change. They would be crazy to move it. This isn't Valla after all :)

    A weird Facebook post from the organisers . I think it was incorrect because it seems to have disappeared. The venue was on the outskirts of town.

    There’s really nowhere else that could fit the festivities other than the oval and surrounding township....
    I’d only believe the info on the website :

    this will be my 10th year and wouldn't miss it for anything, I have even got my eldest daughters wedding date organised around old bar weekend, the cost isn't excessive and is really quite good value in my opinion, we had some really dodgy weather and even a plane crash one year but I still book and pay for next year as I leave, I think the fact I have had the same people around me every year for 10 years says it is worth the cost, cant wait see you all there

    Old bar sounds like a great weekend...

    This will be our first visit..

    Is there a convoy of busses we can join for the drive north from the central coast?

    Depends on the day you head up to Old Bar.
    Many go early, some leave Friday, some Saturday and some just go up for the Sunday.
    Often a cruise goes past each day - just keep an eye on this section.
    Its usually a fairly early start - which rules us out. :rolleyes:
