Dashville is a secluded, privately owned bushland venue and campground located at Belford in the Hunter Valley, NSW.
Behind the beauty of the property, is a small group of hard working people, building things, making music and art, putting on festivals and shows for the joy and delight of themselves and so many others.
The serenity of the secluded bush wonderland added with the abundant facilities, makes us the perfect option for a laid back function.
Yes, you absolutely can! Just in case you're not aware, Dashville is perfect for hosting events, and now we're offering it up for private hire on a limited number of weekends each year.
Please note however that 2017 has no further vacancies.
If looking for a date in 2018, the first step is to fill out our venue hire form.
Included in the form is all necessary terms and conditions for holding an event on the Dashville property. When applying, please read through these and be sure to list as much information as possible so we can assess whether we can host your event.
Just a quick note, since Dashville holds a variety of music festivals on the grounds, be sure to check out when our events are held, as set up and pack down time means some weekends are unavailable for hire.
Dashville is a very relaxing place to host events both large & small.
Based on the slow sustainable growth of these Dashville-run events, various facilities have been afforded at the site, such as showers, underground power, shelters, toilets, bars, light towers, roads etc which now allow other events to happen much easier.
There is also a 22ft wide x 5ft high skateboard ramp at the site.
The camping scenario is all natural clean flat bush land, with well draining sandy loam soil.

Dashville is a family run operation, instead of farming or breeding livestock, the Johnston family excel at hosting events on their 100 acre family property. So if you plan on heading out to Dashville sometime, expect a friendly face & someone willing to help, give advice or assistance.
Dashville has two alternate undercover spaces to host smaller functions of around 50-200 people. For functions larger than this, we would suggest a mixture of the indoor and outdoor open spaces or rent our 10m x 12m clear span marquee.
A slice of bush luxury
For a function around 100-500, the Dashville site has ample space to claim your own private camping spaces. Hot showers, flushing toilets, dining spaces, commercial kitchen, two bar areas.. Bring caravans, campers, claim a powered site. All these things make it quite comfortable place for a function or camping weekend away.
