If you pack for a wide range of weather conditions you will have a comfortable time at Amaroo. Whether you are staying onsite or not, see the suggested list ‘What to Bring‘
Amaroo’s environment and climate can be demanding. The grounds are designed for walking and there is limited transport. We suggest that you wear comfortable walking shoes, a wide hat, bottled water and a jacket to all event activities. A good quality UV 50+ umbrella provides cool protection when walking to the Amphitheatre in the heat of the day.
The Information Booth is located in the Pavilion at shop 29. The team can help with your questions in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Hindi and some Slavonic languages! A Lost and Found service is also provided, as well as the Notice Board with the day’s Event Schedules.
Important Information – Internet Access & Phone Calls

Payment Gateway – Phone connections will take place via mobile apps such as Skype, WhatsApp or Signal or on mobile phones which support “WiFi Calling” technology. You can connect via WiFi costing approximately AU$30.00 for the week or A$5.00 per day.
The older model of local mobile connections via 4G over local Telcos (Telstra, Optus etc) will not be available as they are both expensive and unreliable in our bush location.
