COVID 19 Requirements 

We also ask that you read the ACC ‘s Covid 19 Statement; you will be asked to indicate on the muster attendance sheet that you have read this. 

The showground has plenty of open space. Onsite activities, including the dinner, are in a covered outdoor space. Please maintain the minimum social distance required.  There are plenty of activities available around Charters Towers that you can enjoy and maintain the required social distance. 

 

The Venue

Charters Towers Showground. 

Like many showgrounds, there is plenty of power and water, but not necessarily where your caravan is! So please bring extra power leads, hoses, connections, and be prepared to help and share, in true club spirit. Some sites have 10 amp power points, so please bring a 10-15 amp adaptor if you have one. 

There is a dump point on site. Grey water needs to be disposed of in the dump point, or ensure your grey hose has a sock filter or similar. 

Pets are welcome and ACC pet policy applies.
