We welcome festival and event campers to the Mullumbimby Showground. The Showground is nestled under the gaze of the majestic Mount Chincogan and is 1.3 km west of Mullumbimby's vibrant town centre. The grounds are open to the public for recreation and enjoyment.

Enjoy the beautiful facilities and welcoming vibes at the Mullum Showgrounds. The campground offers spacious powered and unpowered campsites. With our refurbished amenities building, you can be assured of a comfortable stay.

Each site is approximately 8m x 8m and can accommodate a maximum of 4 guests in 2 small tents and 1 car, OR 1 camper/ caravan. Large RV's please contact us by phone. Note that all persons are counted in this number, including any infants. Each site can have a maximum of 2 children (2-13) and/or 1 infant. They must be booked with a parent/ guardian on the same site.

If you have more than one car, you can park them for free in our car park. Just ask the caretakers to direct you to the car park on arrival. If you have a group and want fewer people per site, split your bookings over multiple transactions. Note campsites are allocated on an arrival basis. Campers must camp as directed by the Caretakers. If you'd like your site to be located close to your friends - arrive with them (there will be no saving spots allowed).

The Showgrounds hosts the weekly North Byron Farmers Market on Friday mornings where you can easily stroll over to buy farm fresh produce, breakfast and coffee.

We are a 1.3km walk away from Mullumbimby town centre with a range of cafes and eatery's, two supermarkets, banks and other services and retail shops. Shuttle services to the popular festivals usually leave from the town centre. Check your festival website for details about shuttle services.

It is about a 15 minute drive to Brunswick Heads with its beautiful river, estuary and beaches, and about 30 minutes to Byron Bay.

The Showground hosts a number of events throughout the year. Some of these are events are ticketed and therefore the Showgrounds is closed to all but ticketholders. See our 'What's On' page on our website for more information. The Food Hall and stunning grounds can be hired for events, weddings, exhibitions and festivals.

Great spot for festival event. Quite boggy due to weather but we had a higher spot which got us out of the mud. One thing could have been better is to have the shuttle bus come to the grounds

I've never slept on a water bed before but I guess that wasn't your fault

Re Mullumbimby Show Ground - Most sites (including powered) were inundated with about 1" of water. You could not enter your tent without dragging water & mud into your bedding area - It would have been useful if the caretaker did a walk around on Wednesday arvo or Thursday early, to get some knowledge about sites that were less water logged, and try to allocate sites that would improve the camping experience a lot.
There were "definitely" suitable areas that could have been allocated and these spaces would have made everybody's experience a whole lot better.

Amazing campsite. Owners are wonderful. Showers and toilets are unreal. For Bluesfest, bud takes 10 minutes or it’s a five minute drive and 20 minute walk to the gates

Caretaker Keith was very helpful, relaxed and kind. Strategies to keep muddy grounds away were as best as they could be and we are so grateful for the persistence and hard work to make sure we all had somewhere to stay during bluesfest
