If you are going to watch the 2018 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 from the racetrack, then camping is always a very good option. The historic Mount Panorama offers many camping spots around the circuit, and, while most have already been sold out for this year’s event, tickets are still available for some of them.
The Mount Panorama Circuit has a total of 8 camping spots. The Enduro Campground is one of them. Located outside the track, towards the end of the high-speed 1.916 km-long Conrod Straight, the Enduro Campground offers one site per buyer, allowing two cars per each pass. There is only a few tickets on sale for it, at AU$280.00 and an additional AU$ 15.00 for shipping in Australia and AU$ 19.00 internationally. Showers and toilets are available on site.
The Chase campground also has spots available, although for Area D only, since Areas A, B and C have already been sold out. At the same price as the neighboring Enduro Campground tickets and also allowing two cars per pass, the Chase campground is located at the exit of the homonymous corner at the end of Conrod Straight and is also outside the circuit. Toilets and showers are also available.
The new-for-2018 Orchard Campground is the last available camping spot for this year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000. It’s located between the Enduro and Chase Campgrounds, allowing entrance into the former. The tickets are more expensive, starting at AU$ 280.00 and going up to AU$ 632.00. Besides showers and toilets, the Orchard Campground also offers electricity to some sites.
Already sold out, the McPhillamy Campground is located up the mountain, alongside the famous uphill Skyline section of the circuit, the highest point in Mount Panorama. The campground is also located outside the track and offers showers and toilets on site.
The Reid & Sulman campground has also been sold out. Encompassing the Reid and Sulman Parks, the campground is also located outside the circuit, offering a view of the cars heading towards the Skyling section. Toilets and showers are also available.
The Max Cameron Campground, another sold out spot, is located outside the circuit as well, near the Virgin Australia Corner, – commonly known as Hell’s Corner – the first corner of the track, right at the end of the front straight. With toilets and showers available, the Max Cameron Campground offers the advantage of being located right alongside the Merchandise Ally, with access to food and drink stalls, as well as being close to the pitlane.
The Paddock Campground, as the name would have it, is located behind the pitlane amd with close proximity to both the Support Series’ paddock and the Supercars’ paddock. It should be noted, however, that a paddock pass is necessary in order to access both areas. Toilets and showers are available on site.
The Motor Home Campground is for those who want to watch the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 with their own Motor home or Caravan. Located right at the end of the Conrod Straight, near the Orchard, Chase and Enduro Campgrounds, it offers powered sites as well as toilets and showers.
