“Tent City Hire” has been providing accommodation for patrons at Bathurst for over a decade. 
We take the hassle out of the camping option. Arrive…..Unpack…..Enjoy

Our pre-erected tents are available in single, twin, triple or up to five share in the Company’s  two room tents.  Twin share is ideal, allowing plenty of room for beds, luggage and easy movement within the tent. Families and groups can also be allocated tents together, but it is necessary to mention this when booking. For families with small children the two room tents are ideal as everyone is under the one roof and there is still a dividing wall between the two rooms for privacy. This allows up to five people to be accommodated together under the cover of one roof. 

The tents are carpeted, screened and fitted with a 12-volt light. All Tent City accommodation includes fold-up bed/s and mattress; you will need to bring your own bedding (sleeping bag or sheets, blankets & pillows etc.) if linen packs are not ordered.

The hire of camping chairs and Tables is also available for your stay , it certainly has proved extremely popular for those traveling with limited luggage space. Please note them on your order form when you book or you can still add them later if you so decide.

Plenty of hot showers and toilets are within the facilities’ grounds, and exclusive to “Tent City Hire” patrons. 




This package includes breakfasts served in the hospitality marquee each morning. Choose from a continental smorgasbord breakfast or prepare for the big day with a hot breakfast, available on request in a few moments.(Due to the unknown COVID situation when the race week arrives, breakfast maybe served from a dedicated serving window . Obviously Tent City will be taking all measures to keep within Covid required restrictions to keep our patrons save)

For an extra few dollars you can even start the day with your favourite espresso coffee from the bar.

The Tent City hospitality marquee becomes a social area for patrons, and includes tables and chairs, cold rooms, refrigerator, help yourself complimentary tea and coffee, BBQs, microwave and toasters for those patron who wish to cook their own meal or have the munchies at the end of the day.  Patrons are welcome to store their own drinks in the cold room.

Regular patrons will attest to the convenience, warm, friendly atmosphere and cooperative staff that makes this facility a popular alternative – these patrons have become friends over the years and we look forward to catching up with familiar faces and adding new ones to our ever-growing Tent City “family”.
