TENT CITY:

Members can hire pre-erected tents equipped with stretcher beds and mattresses for two people, two chairs and battery LED lantern lighting.

If two people are sharing a tent city structure and registered separately, the National Administration Office must be given both names and membership numbers.

NOTE: bookings for Tent City will close on Friday 25th January 2019. No other tents will be ordered from the supplier after this date.

ANIMALS:

Companion animals must be registered to enter the National Rally Site. A $30 registration fee per animal is mandatory (except bono fide Guide Dogs).

Owners of companion animals are discouraged from bringing them to National Rally venues. All animals which represent a danger or potential hazard to other registrants, venue staff or themselves are not permitted in the National Rally site at any time. 

Registrants who choose to bring their companion animals must register them with the National Administration Office prior to the rally and must agree in writing to abide by the club’s policy and be responsible for compliance with the policy whilst attending the rally. Acceptance of any animal is at the discretion of the Rally Host Committee and the National Administration Office staff.

 

Mornington Racecourse will continue to operate horse training during the National Rally.  Companion pet owners are to ensure that no interaction occurs between the companion pet and the horses, riders and stable staff.  This is to ensure the safety of all parties during the National Rally.

 

Only bona fide Guide Dogs (not companion animals) will be permitted within the Commercial and Community Precinct areas.

UNPOWERED CAMPSITES:

Campsites will be unpowered (see Medical Power Campsites for special conditions). All sites will be 6M X 6M in size and will be clearly line marked. There is a number of camping supply retailers throughout the Mornington Peninsula for your convenience if you need any camping equipment.

CAMPGROUND RATES:

Camping fees cover the period from 8.00am Monday 25th February 2019 until 10.00am Monday 4th March 2019. All rates have been calculated to fairly cover the cost of hiring the campground, temporary toilets and showers, security, sewage and waste removal from the area. If a campsite is shared by two people, both must register on the same registration form. No more than 2 registrants (Member + guest or 2 Members) per site.

Guest or second member camping on Rally site must pay a shared site fee.

 

Number of camp sites

The draft plan for the Mornington Event shows:

  1. About 600 grassed non-powered sites (6x6m)
  2. Plus 70+ RV/Caravan sites (grass surface)
  3. Plus 100+ sites allocated for Tent City
  4. More space is available…

MEDICAL POWER CAMPSITES:

Powered campsites are available ONLY for people with MEDICAL CONDITIONS NECESSITATING ACCESS TO A POWER SOURCE TO OPERATE MACHINES USED IN THE TREATMENT OF A CERTIFIED MEDICAL CONDITION. Campers requiring medical power for CPAP or portable dialysis machines etc must attach a medical certificate clearly indicating which machines will be used. If you have previously provided a medical certificate which lists this information, please note this on the registration form. Unfortunately, powered sites cannot be included in a group booking. Any member found using domestic appliances connected to a medical site power circuit risks confiscation of that appliance and may be asked to vacate the National Rally site.

Rooftop camper

How would you class a car with a tent attached to the roof racks and towing a bike on a trailer? Would I have to pay RV camping rates?

Yes - If it is a rooftop camper, it would be classed as an RV and an RV site fee will be charged.

 

RV SITE FACILITIES

We have over 70 RV sites, which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis when you register. Power is not available for campsites or RV sites other than for approved Medical reasons.

 

Water is not available for connecting to RV’s but filtered potable drinking water is available on-site to be collected in containers. RV’s are asked to enter the site with full water tanks and empty waste tanks.

 

Currently there is NO WASTE DUMP point on the Rally Site, the Organising Team is trying to get this rectified. At this time, all RV/Caravan waste is to be removed to a RV Waste Dump site. The nearest RV waste dump site is available at Mornington Gardens Holiday Village, 98 Bungower Road, Mornington (approx. 2kms from Rally site) for dump point fee.

 

Solar powered units will be allowed.

LAUNDRY FACILITIES

Whilst there are no laundry facilities onsite, a pickup and delivery service by a local laundry will be available from the Parcels & Laundry Office at the main site. Details for the drop off & collection times will be in the National Rally booklet and on display at the Parcels & Laundry Office.

 

The closest coin-op laundrette is located at Barkly Square, Mornington, approx. 3kms away from the National Rally site. Other laundrettes are situated at Balnarring, Dromana, Hastings, Rosebud, Rye, Seaford and Frankston.

 

ABLUTION BLOCKS
