Summer Festival

JUL 26 - AUG 10, 2019


On-site Accomodation

Staying on-site gives us the full experience of our International Festival, and many opportunities to meet and share experiences with our Kadampa family from around the world.

In addition to Manjushri KMC’s guest accommodation, many of the residential community vacate their rooms so that they can be offered to guests.  For this reason, there are a limited number of single and twin/double rooms available pre & post Festival. If your chosen pre/post Festival accommodation option is not available, we will offer an alternative.

Onsite accommodation is in high demand.  In order to be able to offer accommodation to those on the waiting list who otherwise might not be able to attend, full payment is required by July 19 for all onsite accommodation with the exception of camping in own tent or own camper van (ie. all single, twin/double, shared room, indoor dorm, marquee dorm, and pre-erected tent bookings).  This is non-refundable unless we are able to re-sell your room. See Terms & Conditions for deposit and cancellation terms.

On-site Accommodation

Indoor Accommodation Options:

When booking for a twin or double room, only one person should book the room. The room-mate should also make a Festival booking but select the accommodation option 'sharing a twin/double room'. Both the person booking the room, and the room-mate, will be required to indicate on the booking form who they will be sharing with.

Twin* (2 Beds)
Double* (1 large bed)

A limited number of the above rooms are available with ensuite bathrooms.
All linen and towels are provided.

Shared rooms* 4-7 beds (may incl. bunk beds)
Indoor dormitories*  8+ beds (usually bunk beds)

Please bring a sleeping bag and towel.

*These accommodation types very limited please book early. You are advised to try to book at the date/time that booking opens.  If when making your initial booking your preferred accommodation option is sold out, please contact Festival Registration and request to be put on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

Children's  Accommodation

We regret we are unable to accommodate children under 16 in shared rooms or dormitory accommodation.

Children aged 4 and over who are occupying a bed/space in a twin or double room will be charged at full adult rates above.

Children aged 3 and under sharing their parent’s bed are free of charge.

Children aged under 16 who are camping (in parents own tent) are free of charge. It is not permitted for those under 16 to sleep in their own tent, but must share with an adult family member/nominated carer.

In general children aged 3 or under who are camping (in a ready-erected tent) are free of charge and children aged 4 and over will be counted as a paying person. Children aged 3 or under who are camping (in a ready-erected tent) are free of charge if they do not take up an additional person space. Eg. 2 person tent = 2 paying people + child

Young Adults (16 & 17 year olds)

Young Adults cannot be accommodated in shared room or dormitory accommodation.  They may stay in twin accommodation if their nominated responsible adult is also sharing the room. 16 and 17 year olds are charged as adults.
