Toilets and showers are available on-site, however, there is no power to the campsites. Private generators are welcome. Alcohol is permitted in the campgrounds, but only in ‘reasonable’ quantities. You can park your car at your campsite, as long as it fits within the perimeter of your site. Animals are not permitted in the campgrounds.
To get to Mount Panorama from Sydney, travel along the Great Western Highway, through the Blue Mountains. The trip takes around 3.5 hours, but on busy race days, can take up to 5 hours with traffic, so ensure you leave enough time to make the journey. Train and bus services also operate and stop at the Bathurst Railway Station, located at the bottom of Keppel Street.
