There are toilet and shower facilities in the campgrounds, however there is no power and cooking facilities. You will need to use the 12 volt power in your campervan to charge. Use the power sparingly, and charge the battery every two days. If you are looking for powered sites, you will need to reserve a site in the motorhome park. You can also bring personal amount of food or purchase food and drinks from the outlets around the venue. Wanna cook your own grub? All campervans have a small kitchen, another awesome reason to hire a motorhome for your trip!

Nearby Caravan Parks
If there are no available campsites left at the venue, another option is to camp out at the closest caravan parks. Big4 Bathurst Panorama Holiday Park is only 6.8kms east of Mount Panorama, and is only two bus rides away.
