Pets

Friendly, well mannered, properly controlled pets loved and cared for by responsible owners are welcome at Exhibition Park. Aggressive animals with owners who will not control and clean up after their pets are not welcome and they will be asked to leave without a refund. Please discuss pets and their needs with park management before arriving at Exhibition Park, particularly in peak season to prevent misunderstandings.

Most power outlets and taps service more than one site. For your safety, there is no camping allowed under the high voltage power lines. Over usage of power at any one time may cause a power outage, please only use one power outlet.

Sites must be kept clean and tidy, with no obstructions onto the roads. Dispose of general waste and recycling in the skip bins & recycling bins provided.

It is our policy to reduce trips and falls by advising campers to use high visibility materials to mark rope and tent pegs.

In our commitment to conserve water, please limit your shower to a reasonable time and use the appropriate male or female amenities block.
