How to Get There


The only way to get to the camp is by car. If you don't have a car we suggest that you try to car pool with friends. You will need to organise this yourself.

We will organise car pooling for any interstate or overseas visitors only. If this is you, please let us know as soon as possible that you will be coming so that we have a chance to organise this. Please contact info@play-learn-burn.com.

If you get lost, please call 0431 074 229 and we'll help you find the camp.


Accommodation


There are 3 choices for accommodation at SpunOut - dorm, tent or camper/vehicle. The SpunOut ticket price is the same for all.

There are 4 large dormitories, with bunk beds, on site which sleep 16 to 22 people each. There is a family dorm, couples/mixed dorm, male dorm and female dorm. No bedding is provided so you must bring your own. You will need to bring your own mattress cover/sheet, sleeping bag or blanket, and pillow.

Alternatively, you can pitch a tent and camp. The grounds around the SpunOut site are grassy and shady with plenty of room for camping.

If you have a camper van or some type of liveable vehicle you prefer to sleep in, then you may do that also. There are no powered sites.

Please note that the dorm rooms can be quite noisey has they are attached to the main hall. If you plan to sleep in a dorm, we suggest you bring ear plugs. Camping or sleeping in a camper are the quiter options.
