Bring your own tent
Pitch your own tent in our campsite (usually just a stone’s throw from the centre of the host town) and sleep under the southern stars.
Easy Campese ($450/tent)
For those who want a little luxury along the way, it’s Easy Campese! At each campsite, you’ll have a roomy tent put up for you (supplied with a comfy sleeping mat) and taken down for you on departure morning. Easy Campese riders also have a dedicated luggage truck.
The tents are 2.4m long x 2.3m wide x 1. 5m high. We recommend a maximum of 2 adults per tent OR 2 adults and 2 children under 12. You can squeeze more in but remember you need space for your bags.
In 2017, Easy Campese tents will be allocated on a first in, first served basis. If you want a tent you need to enter as soon as possible (before 26 May 2017) and select the Easy Campese tick box on the online entry form. The Easy Campese option is limited, so make sure you enter early to maximise your chances of getting a tent.
For more information, see the Easy Campese info sheet.
Book your own hotels/motels
If you want more luxury, you can book your own accommodation along the way, but please note that limited motel beds are available in most of the towns along the CQ17 route.
Refer to the Local Accommodation Options Info Sheet or phone the relevant tourist information centres. Any such arrangements are your own and the event organisers cannot assist further.
