You will see that there are 3 options for sites: 3m front x 6m deep, 6m front x 6m deep and 9m front x 6m deep.
Please ensure you request the correct size you need for your tent, marquee, caravan, or unit (incl towbar).We will consider all applications before confirming sites for the event.
They ask that our food vendors respect our longstanding request for no deep fried food, fizzy drinks and lollies.
This has been well received by our paddlers, spectators and volunteers for many years and we appreciate your continuing support of this kaupapa.
Once your site is confirmed at the end of October, an invoice will be sent for the site fee and your power costs (if requested) for the week. This will be calculated on what you used previously and for new vendors, on what your requirements will be.
Please note – Your site will only be confirmed when the invoice is paid.
Further information, maps and a list of confirmed vendors will be circulated in early December.
