Durack Sports Grounds Camping Policy
You may be aware that Dogs Queensland currently allows its members to camp at the Durack Dogs Queensland Sports Grounds (the Showgrounds). We are happy to provide this service to our members as we feel that it helps to strengthen the sense of community among members by helping to build lasting friendships as well as adding to the overall enjoyment that our members experience, particularly during show days.
Dogs Queensland has been granted a limited approval from the Brisbane City Council (BCC) to allow camping at the Showgrounds. Further details of the BCC-issued camping approval and the requirements that must be complied with by members who choose to camp at the Showgrounds can be found in the Dogs Queensland Tent Camping Policy and Guidelines (Camping Policy). Please CLICK HERE to view a copy of the Camping Policy.
While we encourage our members to camp at the Showgrounds, we require that members wishing to do so understand the following:
1. The BCC camping approval granted to Dogs Queensland only allows for a maximum of 20 designated camping sites at the Showgrounds. We are unable to accommodate any additional camping sites at the Showgrounds and we therefore advise members wishing to camp to book early to secure your spot.
2. Members wishing to camp at the Showgrounds must do so within the designated camping area advised by Dogs Queensland and as set out in the Camping Policy.
3. Dogs Queensland is currently only able to offer tent camping to its members. Under the terms of the BCC camping approval, we are unable by law to allow any vehicle camping (such as Caravans, Camper Vans, Winnebagos etc.) at the Showgrounds. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. Dogs Queensland will make a further statement after the July Board Meeting in regards to the potential next stage and further development of the camping area.
4. Members who choose to tent camp outside of the designated area, or to camp in a vehicle will do so at their own risk and Dogs Queensland will not be liable for any loss suffered by those members. Additionally, as this will be in breach of the BCC camping approval granted to Dogs Queensland, members who do so may put Dogs Queensland at risk of losing its current BCC approval and jeopardise future applications for BCC camping approvals.
We encourage all members considering camping at Durack in future to read the Camping Policy and to contact us if you have any questions.
Dogs Queensland extends its appreciation for your understanding and cooperation.
