Hi Bex, welcome aboard!
The more the merrier, i thought we had made that clear ;)

No need to contact the campsite directly, we already have 2 bookings spanning from the 23rd of Dec to the 2nd of Jan. Simply let us know when you will be arriving, this will allow Tim or myself to add you to the list of names in attendance.
From what i understand, we get a free parking spot per group site we book, currently we have 2 and only one van - belonging to Mike Allen. Therefore i believe you should be fine to park free of charge although Keith will have to confirm this.

Haha i cant wait to learn to surf - will be interesting to say the least!!
Quick update - Max has pulled out of our trip, so i will be travelling alone...if anything it makes this an even better experience and really cant wait to meet you all!

Hope everyones well
Mike

Hey ya Bex & Mike (and everyone else of course!)
Bex plus one equals 2 minus Max? Yeah?
Correct about parking: one vehicle per site, group has two sites, so one vehicle plus Bex. Cost to Bex: A$10.00 per person, per night (pay for seven on arrival and get one night free).
Bex: these fees are dependent on you pitching a tent or at least sharing the sites with the group. But you'll be able to park your van close by.
If you want a separate site it may be a bit more difficult. If you do, you will have to book a campervan site in your name and give me a better idea of dates. Price would normally be higher for a separate site but if you don't mind someone from the group sharing your site with you I can make the price the same as everyone else.

I'll try to explain below how it's likely to work out. And considering I think the group will continue to grow..........
Some people will turn up early & they'll have plenty of room. Closer to Christmas more people will arrive but there will still be plenty of room because I have put an extra site aside (2 booked plus an extra site if we need it).
Just before New Year EVERYONE turns up. Potentially, too many vans, too many tents! No room to swing a possum.
When (not if) that happens the people that are here first will get priority (or if they have a confirmed booking).
Unfortunately we always have people turn up at the very last minute and we have to turn them away simply because we don't have room.
So for anyone else reading this, who is NOT in the group already, you need to work out when you will arrive in Sydney. And have an idea of how long you will stay with us. The end date is not as important as the arrival date.

And yes, partying away from the campground is a much better idea:) Use us to recover and relax (& sleep occassionally)

And just to note: hemlines are up for summer fashion here in OZ!:)

Cheers,
Keith.

Thanks for your prompt replies guys - i'm glad im not too late!!! This is gonna be superduper! Well excited now!

Well, i reckon i'll be there 23rd Dec stay until 2nd Jan - even though got the camper would be camping in a tent so hopefully that works out fine with the sites? So just turn up on 23rd Dec and pay on arrival?

I'm travelling with Gooseman (whose name is already on this list at the start). Proper names - Becky Adam and Calum Grant (if thats required!).

Thanks again - what a fab way to spent New Year!

Bex wooohooooo!!!

List should be updated today or tomorrow. I try to have the Mods/Admins update when we have a few names to add to the list, this way I'm not constantly bugging them to make updates.

MikeAllen already has a +1 unless he is supposed to be +2
Shishy and Bex123 were sent to be added to the list..

Hope I didn't miss anyone else, if I did, let me know and I'll get you added.

Might also want to remove the +1 from me as well Tim, as Max has pulled out. Also if its not too much trouble, maybe add the dates of everyones intended arrival, so we know who to expect etc.
I will be arriving on the 23rd, as well as MikeAllen and Bex.
Then Danielle and Kimmi on the 29th i think, ive lost track with all the new additions
