WHERE. Percy’s Place Caravan Park, 190 Hall Street, Pitt Town NSW http://www.percysplacecaravanpark.com.au

WHEN. On the weekend of Saturday 5th to Sunday 6th of June 2021. 

GETTING THERE. Head north-west along Windsor Road to McGraths Hill. Turn right at the lights into Pitt Town Road and follow for four kilometres to Pitt Town. Keep left at the shopping centre into Bathurst Street, follow straight on for one kilometre and then turn right into Hall Street. Follow to the end through the new housing development and turn left down the hill and you will see Percy’s Place straight in front of you on top of the next ridge.

THE ROAD. The road is all asphalt until you get to within 200 metres of the gate when it becomes gravel.

CAMPING. We will be camping in the informal unpowered end of this bush caravan park capable of holding an estimated 30 campers on the banks of the Hawkesbury River, just 30 minutes north-west of Parramatta in Sydney’s outer urban area. The area is flat, well grassed but fully exposed to the sun although there is some shelter under trees.

LIMITED NUMBER. Please note the attendance form will be closed when the 30 camper trailers limit has been reached.

MAKING ARRANGEMENTS. There is no need to book. If you would like to attend just add your name to the form provided. The address of the form can be found in the Australian CamperTrailers forum in the Upcoming Events section or in the Australian CamperTrailers Facebook Group by typing 'Percy's Place' into the search this group window.

PAYMENT. Please pay at the office on arrival, letting them know you are part of the campertrailers.org group to get the discounted rate.

CAMPING FEES. $25 per night unpowered (a discount on the normal fees) for two adults.

DAY ACCESS. $10 per adult & $5 a child

POWER. We will be occupying the northern end of this 110 acres site where there is no power. Power is available at the southern end, just inside the gate but you will be 800 metres from the rest of the group and may not get the discount camping rate.

 

NAME TAGS. If you have a name tag please bring it along.

WATER. Water is available at the camp kitchen and shower/toilet block just inside the gate, at the shelter in the south-east corner and from several taps along the eastern side of the property, otherwise bring your own.

CAMPFIRES. Small campfires are permitted in the existing fire pits (do not start your own fireplace) or in one of the supplied portable campfire drums.

FIREWOOD. Firewood can be purchased at the park office or you can bring your own.

AMENITIES. Mobile toilets will be supplied for our immediate use and a campground amenities block with hot showers and flushing toilets is available at the southern end of the park. Additional facilities include a dump point, washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board and clothesline plus camp shop for basic supplies. There is a boat ramp and canoes/kayaks can be launched from the beach below our camp site.

DOGS. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a leash at all times.

RUBBISH. There are rubbish bins provided. 

ACTIVITIES. Our allocated area is immediately adjacent to the river and there is a sandy beach immediately in front for those who might want to cool off.

The local area has many places of interest. Pitt Town and Windsor were among Governor Lachlan Macquarie’s Five Towns, set up to feed the growing settlement of Sydney from the rich alluvial soils along the Hawkesbury. The historic village of Windsor (about 7km away) has an extensive street market every Sunday. Pitt Town itself is a small village just over a kilometre away. Drives along the Hawkesbury are always attractive, and you can take in the Richmond Air Force base or the town of Richmond itself.

Pitt Town has a small supermarket, a selection of basic shops (bottle shop, bakery, pizza, pharmacy, butcher, doctor, hardware, pub, several restaurants) so supplies can be obtained easily.

HAPPY HOUR. Please bring your own nibbles and drinks to the centre of camp for happy hour at 3pm.

Come sit & relax with a bunch of like minded people. Check the modifications others have done to their camper trailers to make camping life all that more enjoyable. You might meet as complete strangers on the Friday evening, but will part old friends such is the camaraderie.

You do not need a camper trailer to attend. Members without a camper are more than welcome to come along & get a first hand unbiased opinion of a particular camper trailer from their owners. Come along & meet the faces behind the typing.

Please keep in mind that the group owners will not accept any responsibility for members & non-members actions during the weekend get together. If you decide to attend, it is solely at your own responsibility, including any side trips or outings during the weekend meet.
