YARRA JUNCTION FIDDLERS CONVENTION 2020

FACILITIES AND INFORMATION

 

The Convention is held at the historic and Heritage listed Camp Eureka - www.campeureka.org.au. We couldn't think of a better place for it. There is a huge concert hall with open sides, a smaller hall, large kitchen/dining room (communal cooking encouraged), a covered  barbeque area and 35 acres of bush, with a small creek. Be nice to the hard working Camp Eureka Working Collective folk who work the gate. Ask  them about the Camp, and how you can get involved in maintaining this icon of the old Victorian left and an  Australian founding place of the "folk revival".

 

CAMPING

Most people camp. There are no  powered sites, but electricity can be arranged only if needed for medical equipment. To get a good spot, come early. Early Bird access is available from 2.00pm Thursday for an extra $10 per person. Campfires may be banned depending on the weather.

 

BUNKHOUSES

Individual and  single sex bunkhouse huts are available. The huts  have electric lights but no power points. No extra charge. To check availability ring Trish Glazier on 0438348779

 

TOILETS AND SHOWERS

Notorious pit toilets, of usual good bush camping standard, recently upgraded. Two are wheelchair accessible, though  assistance may be required. The showers are wood-heated, so hopefully someone will have lit the water heaters before you get there.

 

FOOD

Fine fast food from Friday evening onward from the Spud Shack. Phil Winnell, the proprietor of the Spud Shack, provides extremely good veg and non-veg food, including Thai snacks. Good espresso coffee  and hot chocolate will also be available.


A LOAD OF OLD RUBBISH

Thanks everyone for last year's rubbish control !!!.

We strive to keep entry fees as low as we can and as rubbish disposal is a huge annual cost and the local tip has closed we are asking for your assistance.

General Rubbish:

Campers when you enter the Festival you will be given a rubbish bag,please use this for all of your rubbish and take it home.

Day Trippers , bins are available in and around the kitchen area and in the big hall.

Recycling:

The Eureka Collective has a responsible recycling mind set and bins for this purpose will be placed all over the site. NO GENERAL RUBBISH IN THESE BINS.

NO BUTTS:

Cigarette butts must NOT be thrown on the ground ,firstly it is a fire hazard and secondly we have to pick up every one.
