General camping at the Great Vic
General camping

General camping is part of your ticket, and includes a camping spot for you, your tent and your bike. Lights out is 10pm.

Quiet camping

Perfect for those seeking a little tranquility with their camping experience. With an early curfew of 9.30pm, we ask quiet campers to keep noise levels to a minimum and respect the serenity of the quiet camping area. 


Dome zone

Don’t have a tent, or not keen to put up your own each day? Our brilliant team will pick out a prime spot at the campsite and set up your dome tent for you each night so you can kick back at the end of a day’s riding. A dome zone tent must be purchased in addition to your Great Vic entry and sleeps two people.
