Bring These Things
* DIRECTIONS on how to get to the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre.
* YOUR TICKET is a wristband, the wristband is your ticket. It gets you in, around and out. Double-check you have it now. Put it on as you leave. And keep it on at all times whilst you’re at The Sup’.
* A CONVOY PLAN. You can’t reserve campsites. It’s first in best camped. So arrive in convoy with your friends if you wish to camp together. If your friends are too lazy to turn up when you do, just make new ones when you arrive.
* SOMETHING TO SLEEP IN, eg. a tent. Don’t forget the tent pegs. If you drive, you can park the car next to your tent. Caravans and motorhomes are welcome.
* A SLEEPING BAG/doona/extra blankets.
* BRING REALLY WARM CLOTHES. We can’t stress this enough – BRING REALLY WARM CLOTHES AND WATERPROOF CLOTHES EVEN IF IT’S HOT AND SUNNY WHEN YOU LEAVE HOME. It can get very cold at night.
* REFILLABLE DRINK BOTTLE (not glass). There is plentiful free drinking water available in all the campgrounds and the Amphi. There are no single-use plastic water bottles sold anywhere across the site, although water in cans is sold from the food stalls.
* SUNGLASSES, HAT, SUNSCREEN, LONGSLEEVE SHIRT, etc.
* PHOTO ID – If you are over 18 and wish to gain access, BRING PHOTO ID. EVEN IF YOU ARE 55 YOU WILL STILL NEED PHOTO ID.
* CARD AND/OR CASH. Card is now accepted at the Gift Shoppe, Heaven Eleven, the Ice truck and all bars and food stalls. All still accept cash too. There is an ATM on site but it’s best to bring cash with you.
* MOBILE PHONE – there are no landline public phones on site. There are public phones in the town of Meredith, 10 minutes drive from the site. Coverage on the farm is improving all the time. You may have to go to the highest part of the site to get a signal.
* ANY MEDICATION YOU NEED – there is no pharmacy on site. If you have a chronic condition or illness (including asthma, diabetes, epilepsy) and/or allergies, please come prepared with your medication and present to First Aid early if you are concerned or experiencing difficulty. Carry information regarding your condition and emergency contact numbers on you at all times. You can also have any medicines stored at First Aid.
* DRINKING WATER FOR THE CAMPSITE – there is free drinking water available, but we highly recommend getting a refillable bulk water container, preferably one that’s reusable – a 10 litre would be ideal. Apart from just drinking it, it will be very handy for washing, cleaning, brushing your teeth and keeping your tongue wet for licking stamps if you decide to do all your wedding invitations. There are of course plenty of hot and cold showers and sinks and water outlets available on site, but nothing beats the convenience of having water on tap at your campsite. Can also be refilled at all drinking water tanks.
* REUSABLE PLASTIC CONTAINERS for drinks and food, including things like salsa. Please leave all glass at home.
* A VEHICLE OR ORGANISE YOURSELF A LIFT HOME. Public Transport is a good option to consider. Taking the Supernatural Express or Chartering a bus is an even better option. Taxis are at an absolute premium out here; a small number are available but book well in advance (like weeks) and make clear plans with the driver.
* TENT MARKER – they really do all look the same. A flag for the car aerial. (But these are not ok in the Amphitheatre).
* TORCH AND CAMPLIGHT – those strap-on small headlamps are great for nights, and a battery powered camp lantern or three for the tent and campsite with plenty of batteries is a good idea. Some come with remote controls, which are terrific for when you are trying to find your tent in the dark. Some people bring small bike-style flashing battery-powered LED lights on poles or car roofs to help find the tent at night. Get a good idea of your bearings when you arrive. And have an idea of where your nearest Helper Hut is in case you do get lost.
* Good sensible SHOES for your feet. Thongs and sandals don’t count as sensible.
* If the weather looks like being wet, bring GUMBOOTS.
