As Broken Hill swells with visitors in the period surrounding the Mundi Mundi Bash, we know accommodation is hard to come by. Roadside camping between Broken Hill and Mundiville is not permitted.
The Broken Hill Regional Events Centre & Racecourse, in true outback hospitality style, is opening up the infield of the racetrack to welcome visitors in numbers never before seen in the town!
This primitive style camping is perfect for self sufficient campers, while also offering a range of basic facilities. There are generously sized unpowered sites, as well as a limited number of powered sites for those looking for something more.
This is a fantastic base for travellers who wish to explore Broken Hill and surrounds.
Please ensure you read through all the information about Broken Hill Racecourse camping on this page. This is not a traditional caravan park, and it is vital that campers are aware of the facilities and plan their stay accordingly.
