The Rochester

Hire your own private room in advance, then arrive on-site via the express lane and drive straight to your reserved car space near your already-set up and furnished room.

The Rochester has a friendly 24-hour concierge and is located in prime campground between Mulwaverley and Hong Kong Island, close to the Amphitheatre, Pink Flamingo Bar, Meredith Eye and Eric’s Terrace, as well as the hot showers. And there’s a loo just for Rochester guests.

Reserve an XL Rochester, one of Uncle Doug’s roomy 20-foot lockable cabins (converted shipping container) complete with veranda, bedside table, running water, a fan, a light and hotel-grade mattress; your choice of a double bed or two singles. Maximum 2 people per room.

Also available (in very limited numbers), The Standard Rochester, your own private sturdy canvas tent; your choice of a double stretcher bed or two single stretcher beds. Maximum 2 people per room.

Check in is from 8am on Saturday morning and late check out by 1pm on Monday. Two days, two nights for two people in your own private canvas tent for The Standard or The XL converted shipping container. BYO all linen, towels, blankets and pillows. Soap and shower tokens are provided.

The Rochester is a boutique establishment so vacancies are very limited. Reservations are initially open to successful Ballot entrants (one Rochester reservation per ballot code). We suggest that you book early to avoid disappointment.

We trust you will enjoy your stay with us.
