Bring These Things
• YOUR TICKET is a wristband, the wristband is your ticket. It gets you in, around and out. Double-check you have it now. Put it on as you leave. And keep it on at all times whilst you’re at The Sup’.
• A VEHICLE, OR ORGANISE YOURSELF A LIFT. Public Transport is a good option to consider. Taking the Supernatural Express or Chartering a bus is an even better option. Taxis are at an absolute premium out here; a small number are available but book well in advance (like weeks) and make clear plans with the driver.
• DIRECTIONS on how to get to the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre.
• A CONVOY PLAN. You can’t reserve campsites. It’s first in best camped. So arrive in convoy with your friends if you wish to camp together. If your friends are too lazy to turn up when you do, just make new ones when you arrive
• A DESIGNATED DRIVER. Plan ahead.
• SOMETHING TO SLEEP IN, eg. a tent. If you drive, you can park the car next to your tent. Caravans and motorhomes are welcome.
• LOTS OF TENT PEGS, a tarp or mesh ground sheet to put under your tent, a mallet, camp chair, rug or blanket and plenty of ropes to take any furniture back home. A table for sharing snacks and playing card games.
• A SLEEPING BAG/pillows/doona/extra blankets – nights get real cold, even if days are hot.
• CAMPING MATTRESS (air pump if required) – something to insulate you from the ground.
• TORCH/CAMPLIGHT – strap-on headlamps are good. Battery-powered camp lantern.
• REFILLABLE DRINK BOTTLE (not glass). There is plentiful free drinking water available in all the campgrounds and the Amphi. There are no single-use plastic water bottles sold anywhere across the site, although water in aluminium cans and bottles is sold from the food stalls.
• BULK DRINKING WATER – free drinking water is available on-site but bring a big (eg. 10 litre) refillable container for drinking, washing, cleaning, brushing your teeth, etc.
• SNACKS – in non-glass, reusable containers. Please decant/transfer things like salsa, sauce and vegemite from their original glass packaging.
• PHOTO ID – even if you are 55 you will still need photo ID.
• BRING REALLY WARM CLOTHES. We can’t stress this enough – BRING REALLY WARM CLOTHES AND WATERPROOF CLOTHES EVEN IF IT’S HOT AND SUNNY WHEN YOU LEAVE HOME. It can get very cold at night.
• Multiple pairs of good SENSIBLE SHOES – ideally waterproof boots – and lots of socks. Thongs and sandals don’t work. If the weather looks like being wet, bring GUMBOOTS.
• A sturdy WATERPROOF RAINCOAT with hood and a big bag of spare warm and waterproof clothes and boots (jumpers, thermals, socks, beanie, gloves).
• SUNGLASSES, HAT, SUNSCREEN, LONG SLEEVE SHIRT and long pants for sun protection.
• EARPLUGS, and anything else that helps to soften sensory input when needed.
• MEDICATION – there is no pharmacy on site. If you have a chronic condition or illness (including asthma, diabetes, epilepsy) and/or allergies, please come prepared with your medication and present to First Aid early if you are concerned or experiencing difficulty. Carry emergency contact numbers and information regarding your condition at all times. Rapid Antigen Tests and masks – in case you experience COVID symptoms.
• TOILETRIES – toothbrush, toothpaste, biodegradable shampoo, soap for hot showers, condoms, deodorant, tissues, sanitary items, towel, wash cloth, etc. Please don’t bring baby wipes. First aid kit – band-aids, headache and hangover relief, insect repellent (with deet or picaridin to repel mozzies), lip balm, earplugs, pain relief for bites and stings, instant cold/hot pack.
• CARD AND/OR OTHER ELECTRONIC PAYMENT METHOD. Several places no longer accept cash, including the Gift Shoppe, showers, all bars and some food vendors. Other places, including the Community Tucker Tent, Massage and various vendors in both food courts, will continue to accept both card and cash. Best to check before you place your order. There is an ATM located near Helper Hut Central if you need it.
• MOBILE PHONE – Coverage has improved a lot in recent years, with the site now being served by both major telecommunications providers. Although it can be patchy on festival weekend with the increase in traffic. There is a public phone in Meredith town should you need it. A fully charged power bank and charging cable.
