HAHAHA!! No ones cripple here punk!! Just a bit hobbled!

And yup, there is room for you two so i can add 2 more to my +3! I'm fairly sure Keith(LaneCove) has us 3 sites so we can fit about 30 people total.

Keith, can you confirm we still have 3 spots? I know you said you guys are sold out so I'm hoping we still have the space!!
Let me know how the job is going Jade!!

Hobble Tim, out!

Hey Tim. A couple of extra people will be fine. 3 camping spots & a campervan site confirmed from the 23rd through to New Year's Day or the 2nd? I'm not at work today but I'll check the final date tomorrow.
I'll hold the campervan spot for a little while as well.
Hope the leg is recovering quickly for you.

Hi ya Jade. Arriving the 23rd will be fine. Are you definite?
And is it just camping or will you have a campervan?

Ask anything you like. It's probably been answered but this forum post has gotten so large it would be difficult to find:)

Quoting Lane Cove

Hey Paul. And everyone else!:)
And for the moderators of the forum: Just confirming prices for everyone in the group, I'm trying NOT to promote us:)

Because you're travelling on your own you might be better off staying at a hostel until the group arrives around the 23rd.
A campsite with us is the same price for one as it is for two ($34 per night). With the group it will be less per person, per night. $34 per night for the site for two people and $10 per night each additional person.
Example: 4 people will cost $54 per night ($13.50 each). 6 people will cost $74 per night ($12.33 each) probably about 8 people per site maximum ($11.75 each, per night).
So, the more people the cheaper it becomes. And the weekly discount still applies.
As I said, check out hostel prices for the days you need before joining the group.
You personally won't need to book independently with us for the period from the 23rd of December. I'll just throw you in with the group!:)

If there is anyone else that intends to join the group (that we don't already know about) from the 23rd or later, we will need to know very, very soon. Otherwise you'll miss out. We are booked out for Christmas/New Year but there is still a few spots available with the TP group.


brilliant cheers thanks for that, so im looking at Hostel until 23rd? then im guaranteed to be in?

you guys are legends for the help you are doing with arranging this!

Hi Paul.
Yes, from the 23rd you're booked in at the campground.
If anyone else arrives earlier you could come over to join them. Just stay in touch with everyone.
If you are going to stay in a hostel until the 23rd I suggest you arrange it soon.

Do you have your own camping gear? Or will you need to arrange that when you get here?
If you need to buy gear there is a good place not far from us. Or you can buy it in the city before you join the group.

Hi Ya.
Okay, 2 more people from the 23rd Dec. It will probably cost you about A$12 each, per night. And yes, you can pay when you arrive.

Someone was good enough to do a summary of some relevant links a little bit earier in the blog but not sure how far back on the forum it is.

Tents. There is a good variety store not far from us called Big W. It' only 2 train stops away. This is a link to their website but no 2 man tents are advertised (they would have them though). They have a price for a 4 man tent of A$69.42.
The shop is in a big shopping centre so you could buy everything you need there.

Directions to us are at
And when you arrive at the campground just call in at reception and mention you're with the Travellers Point group.

Do you know what time of day you arrive in Sydney?

For everyone's info. Night shopping is usually only on a Thursday night in Sydney but because it will be close to Christmas the shops will be open late most nights (23rd Dec is a Wednesday).
Shops will be closed on Fri the 25th Dec & most likely to be closed on Sat 26th Dec. so you will all need to stock up for the weekend :)

hope all this helps and see you on the 23rd :)

Hi all,

I don't know if I'm a little late to the party here, but is there room for an additional solo traveller in the group? I'll be getting to Sydney from Melbourne around 28th.

Hi Dave.
I notice you've posted before about the group.....
I'm not actually the organiser of the group so one of the others will most likely need to approve extra people joining.
We should be able to fit one more in though:)
Do you know how long you want to stay?

For everyone else involved, or wishing to join the group, I have four camp sites put aside. Plus one site for a campervan (taken).

So there is room for more people to join. But as I said earlier, we need to know soon.
I'll hold the fourth site until closer to Christmas. But I will have to decide on a date to let it go if we don't get more people.
Depending on the size of the tents we should be able to fit up to about 32 people on the four camp sites.

To Tim & Mike. I'm happy to try to keep track of the numbers & respond to extra people wanting to join the group. But it's your group and I don't want to step on your toes at all :)
