CAMPSITE BOOKINGS WILL OPEN MAY 2020
We are working with the relevant authorities and hope to be able to give you a more decisive update on this year’s event by early July. For this reason, ticket sales for this year’s event will not open in May as per our usual process.
Camping is provided by the Australian Camp Oven Festival Millmerran Inc.
Camping is available for motor homes, caravans, camper trailers, tents and swags.
Camping on-site for the full week leading up to the Australian Camp Oven Festival is by far the best way to immerse yourself in all that Millmerran and the Darling Downs has to offer.
Camping is available between Monday 28th September to Monday 5th October (only)– you can stay for as many nights as you like during that time at the same price.
Shower and toilet facilities are available in the camping grounds for the full week.
There will be a number of events happening in Millmerran during the lead up to the festival weekend and the area is also home to a range of natural attractions for you to explore while you visit.
Campsite bookings will open on the 1st May at 8am (Qld time) and can be booked online or by phone (extra charges apply). There is one fee and you can stay as many nights as you like during the period from 28th September to 5th October. You will need to pay for your festival entry at the time of booking your campsite.

Things to consider when preparing to camp at the Festival:
We aim to get you into your campsite as quickly as possible however there may be queues when you enter the site. We will be doing our best to minimise delays but you can help out by making sure you have your tickets ready to be scanned. If your friends have your tickets make sure you organise to meet them outside the grounds to get your tickets. Tickets don’t have to be printed – we can scan from your mobile device.
Collection of Tickets – Box Office
Collection of tickets is available from the Millmerran Visitor Information Centre, Corner Mary and Edward Street Millmerran. The Information Centre will be open from 9am – 4pm.
You MUST have your tickets with you to enable entry into the Showgrounds.
Be Familiar With Our Camping Rules
It is our expectation that every person that books a camping site at the Festival has read and accepted our Camping Rules. You can read these in full by clicking here.
Because of limited use, it is not possible for us to provide perfectly level camp sites with well manicured lawns and water taps to each site. Just remember that this is a showgrounds not a caravan park.
Powered sites are very limited and they will sell out fast.
The majority of campsites are approx 12m x 6m (40ft x 20ft). Campsites in the Red Section Rows B to T are larger @ approx 12m x 7m (40ft x 23ft), and a number of powered sites are 12m x 7m. If your vehicle and accommodation does not fit on either of these size campsites please choose a Big Rig campsite or call us to discuss your options. Maps with these areas will be available to see in the near future.
While we continue to improve the facilities please remember that our camping grounds are used only a few times a year. Toilet and shower facilities are adequately basic. Peak times for shower queues are in the mornings and later afternoons so please avoid these times if you don’t want to wait.
Spring on the Darling Downs can be unpredictable and all we can say is – expect the unexpected! Come prepared for warm to hot days and cool to cold nights. You should prepare for any weather occasion.
Water is a precious commodity at Millmerran. We would appreciate if everyone would join with us in conserving water in the following ways:
- Restrict yourself to one shower a day
- Turn the water off when brushing your teeth
- Please bring some water with you – full tanks when you arrive
- The water tap near your campsite cannot be hooked up to your van. They are there for everyone to use.
Those are the basics and we appreciate your efforts in conserving water where possible.
Keep your valuables safe
Theft can be a problem as at any large event so please do not bring anything of value to the festival other than what is absolutely necessary. All valuables remain the responsibility of the camper.
Expect noise, bring earplugs
Campsites near the festival stage areas and in other areas may hear music from the festival precinct until the late hours of the night. Fellow campers and festival volunteers may be up and about all day and night, with vehicles moving around from early in the morning. Please bring your ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.
