Bungendore is a country town just to the east of Canberra that is centrally located for all the events of the carnival and provides all the facilities you might need during your visit. In particular, management of the Bungendore Showground, a few minutes drive to the NW, has graciously offered the use of their camping area over the period of the carnival. We have exclusive use of the camping area as well as access to the hall, commercial kitchen, fridges, covered outdoor area and tables and chairs. There is an onsite caretaker, toilets, a washing machine and hot showers.
Some photos of the site can be seen in the slideshow below. Note the view shown in one of the photos across the main arena towards Gibraltar Hill, the site for the Middle Distance and Relay Championships.
