Location

Yin Barun Road, Swanpool Victoria 3673 – Off Midland Highway, 14.5 km’s south of Benalla.  Approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes drive from Melbourne.

The Site

The new site for Yoga Camp is a 1200 acre private eco farm near Benalla.  This stunning piece of land has the Broken River winding itself right through the middle.  We want to acknowledge the generous support of Ian, Rosey and Mark Foletta in providing the opportunity for Yoga Camp to be held in this special place.

Public Transport

Trains leave from Central station in Sydney via Albury to Benalla or Southern Cross station in Melbourne direct to Benalla.  Taxis are available from the train station, please call 03 5762 3333, one way trip approx cost $35.

Carpooling

We love carpooling! If you would like to offer a seat or you are looking for a ride you can do so on the Yoga Camp Facebook Group.

Accommodation

Camping is included in the ticket price.  The new Yoga Camp site is on the river flats of the Broken River providing many grassy camping spots.  We recommend bringing everything you need to make your stay a comfortable one. Drinking water and toilets are available. Yoga Camp will be running regardless of weather, so we recommend that you check the weather forecast prior to coming, and take clothes accordingly.

What to bring

BYO all eating and drinking utensils including mug (for yummy chai & tea), plate, bowl, knife, fork and spoon.

NOTE – To avoid any mishaps, your plate and bowl need to be strong enough to hold heavy, hot food.    We apologise in advance, but people who rock up with thin, highly flexible plates cannot be served

For yoga – bring a yoga mat or buy one at the registration tent.  You may also like to bring a snuggly blanket or shawl and cushion for meditation (optional).

Camping – tent, mattress, pillow, sleeping bag and any other camping equipment you need to make your stay comfortable.  Please do not bring camping stoves – no naked flames are allowed on site.

We also recommend bringing: torch, hat, water bottle, swimming gear, sunblock, mozzie repellent, wet weather gear (hopefully not necessary, but do check the forecast), and anything else you may need to feel safe and happy over the weekend.

Chai and snacks

Chai and delicious snacks will be available to purchase at afternoon tea and evenings as indicated on the program. Bring along cash as ATMs/EFTPOS are not available on site, if you need to obtain more cash, then Benalla is a 15 minutes drive from the site.

Meals, delicious food!

Delicious vegetarian meals, using organic and locally sourced ingredients are included in the ticket price and will be served from Friday evening until Sunday lunchtime – note dinner Sunday is not provided.  We support ethical purchasing and ecologically-sensitive farming practices and are pleased to be sourcing organic produce from Angie and Marcus at Local Organics.

Seva Yoga Volunteering

As part of Yoga Camp participation we require that everyone offers a two hour shift of service (seva) during the weekend in kitchen prep, washing dishes, as a chai or meal server etc.  Our friendly registration crew will help you sign up when you arrive.  Serving others in this way is a great experience and lots of fun, and helps Yoga Camp to continue to offer a quality festival experience at the most affordable price possible.

Refunds

Refunds are not available unless the event is cancelled.  If you buy a ticket and can no longer attend we do allow name transfers as long as Yoga Camp is notified up to 7-days before the event.

Yoga Camp is a drug and alcohol free event.
