Splendour in the Grass accommodation that isn't camping

Access to the camping area starts at 10am on the Wednesday and you can stay until 8pm Monday.

Here are 3 possibilities, depending on which style of travel you're after. The dates available are 21-25 July 2022.

Byron Bay transport

Where there are festivals, there will be campervans. At Splendour, campervans up to 7.5m long and caravans up to 6m long are allowed. If your vehicle is longer than this, you will need to email campgrounds@splendourinthegrass.com to confirm that you will be allowed to park on the grounds.

If you do wish to park on the grounds, you must pre-purchase a vehicle pass through Moshtix (vehicle passes will be available closer to the festival dates).

You can hire a campervan from your city and drive it to the festival. Prices depend on how many berths you require and what sort of amenities (e.g. shower) you’d like in your campervan. Just bear in mind that there are no powered sites and generators are not permitted.

Some of the great site to book and compare campervan prices across various companies are Motorhome Republic and DriveNow. Companies it compares include Mighty, Travellers, Britz, Go Cheap, Camperman and Jucy.

The following price guide is accurate at the time of writing (23 August 2021) and may be subject to cost and availability changes. Prices also do not include petrol costs or any extras (e.g. navigational systems and insurance) that you can purchase during the time of booking.

    Where do I start with public transport from surfers paradise to the festival and back?

      Hi Lucy,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      During the Games, extra local buses, train, and G:link light rail services will run, making it easier for you to travel to events and explore the local surroundings. Most services will run every 15 minutes or better in peak periods, meaning you can just turn up and go.

      To travel for free on public transport, simply show your Games ticket, or GOLDOC workforce accreditation when boarding. Free travel can only be accessed on the day of your event until 3 am the next day and does not include travel on the Airtrain service, and any bus charters that are privately owned and operated which set their own fares, service levels, and timetables.

      Free public transport for ticketed spectators will be available on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane on TransLink’s South East Queensland public transport network.

      There are eight GC2018 Transport Hubs located in Brisbane and the Gold Coast and one of them is located at Peninsular Drive, Surfers Paradise.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi, I was asking for public transportation for splendour in the grass (music festival) to and back from surfers paradise. I used your link but it couldn’t show me the trip details.
      Can you help me on an easy plan getting there and back using public transportation?

      Hi Lucy,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Please refer to our transport guide Splendour in the Grass to North Byron Parklands from Surfers Paradise.

      You may also contact Translink and Byron Easybus for your tickets and further information.

      I hope this helps.
