Camping at RQYS
Limited camping is available on-site at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron, however RQYS is not a camp ground; rather RQYS makes part of a lawn available for this purpose for regatta participants. Prospective campers should be aware that RQYS cannot guarantee power for all campers (limited power outlets are available and must be booked prior to arrival.
TOILETS/LAUNDRIES FOR CAMPERS RQYS has a number of ablution blocks that are principally provided for live-aboard members and will provide additional on-site demountable showers and toilets for the duration of the regatta season. There are a limited number of pay-as-you-go washing machines and dryers available on site (a laundromat is also available in Manly behind the Manly Deck Bar and Restaurant).
CAR PARKING FOR CAMPERS The camping ground will be roped off. For the safety of all campers, unless they are being utilised for camping in, vehicles will not be permitted on the camping ground (this includes loading and unloading). Any vehicle being utilised for camping in must remain on the camping ground in its designated place, for the duration of the stay (i.e. it is not to be driven on and off the camping ground). A separate carpark adjacent to the camp ground will be made available for vehicles belonging to campers.
GATE ACCESS FOR CAMPERS Campers will receive a gate access card ($50 refundable deposit) to enable single vehicle access into the grounds. Parking restrictions will be in force for the duration of the regatta season (1 December 2017 to 31 January 2018) – campers’ vehicles may only be parked in the designated area adjacent to the camp ground once inside the RQYS internal gates. Designated trailer parking will be provided, trailers must be stored as directed. *Campers are not permitted to bring boat trailers into the grounds, boats must be dropped off and trailers stored in accordance with class regatta guidelines. Designated spots will be provided, camper-trailers, caravans & motorhomes must be parked as directed.
