Broad brimmed hats, 30 plus sunscreen, umbrellas and comfortable walking shoes are highly recommended. Torches should be carried at night (make sure you have back-up batteries), and water should be carried at all times.
If you have a pre-existing health condition, please seek advice from your physician before travelling. Personal travel insurance with coverage for medical, surgical, and emergency travel is strongly recommended. Attendees are responsible for all costs relating to their medical and health matters.

- Driving slowly on Mt Flinders Road (60 km zone). Local residents walk, cycle and horse-ride along here, please drive safely!Do not block driveways.
- Do not trespass on any neighbouring properties.
- Please respect neighbours’ privacy.
- Do not camp in public spaces.
- Do not litter. This includes not dumping waste from motorhomes on roadsides.

Paramedics and an ambulance will be the only medical services located on site to respond to first aid needs and medical emergencies. There will be a First Aid Booth in the Pavilion, which will operate from Saturday 9th to Saturday 16th September. Non-emergency medical problems will be referred to local medical practitioners at your expense.
Apart from snakes, a variety of insects exist in the ecology of Amaroo, including ticks, wasps, ants, spiders and bees. If you have allergic reactions to bites and stings, please bring medications as recommended by your physician.

Guests are asked to be very water conscious at all times, using as little water as possible. Ivory’s Rock has it’s own onsite Sewage Treatment Plant.

Requested Guest Practices:
Save water usage by:
- Trying your best to have three-minute showers
- Turn off the sink taps while brushing your teeth
- Report leaking taps or cisterns to the campground management
Take care of the onsite sewage treatment plant by:
- Not flushing personal hygiene products, wrappings or applicators
- Not flushing cleaning cloths (e.g. rags, chux, wet wipes, etc)
- Not flushing paper towels
- Don’t allow any unapproved chemicals to enter the sewerage system (sewage water cartridges from motor-homes)
Please be aware that if you choose to bring valuables and then need to leave them unattended, it will be at your own risk as IRCE will not be responsible for any valuables brought on site. No sharp objects or cameras will be permitted in event areas.
