COVID Statement 11th of January 2022.

As of today there has been an amendment to the Public Health Order potentially effecting your chosen concert. Outdoor music festivals now have a maximum capacity of 20,000 with no singing or dancing allowed (the latter quite boring, we know.. and yet there are 40,000 at the cricket? But our own personal feelings aside...).

If your concert is cancelled we'll do our best to operate so you can still have a bit of a getaway in the Hunter Valley, otherwise we can offer refunds (less booking fee) if you can't make it. Please be mindful our ability to refund if the event is cancelled close to the date - our usual policy is refunds 14 days before the event so we can order fresh stock.

Please remember to be kind to festival workers, we're doing our best - if we've had a sudden cancellation due to a Government decision, we're likely in panic mode. Here in live music we've been dealt a hard 2 years, as we all have, so please be thoughtful and patient - no matter how many times we are forced to cancel, it never gets easier and we try our best to respond or refund/credit as soon as possible.

With love,

Team Hunter Tent Stay xx

The basic run down is below, please read through these points, if anything is unclear, or your date is not listed above, be sure to drop us an email via mail@dashville.com.au or phone 0417690992.

Here is the run down. (Please note, we're cool for having a yarn on the phone, but please try to read these points of interest before deciding to give us a buzz.)

  •  WHEN TO ARRIVE - Decide whether to arrive Friday or Saturday. If it's Friday anytime after 2pm is fine. If it's Saturday, anytime from 8am is fine. Friday nights, we like to have some live entertainment, most weekends we will have a licensed bar and dinner available. (Live music is subject to quantity of bookings)
  • PER PERSON RATE - Everything is charged per person so this allows freedom for you to set up however, wherever. Keep in mind under 12 is free.
  • TENT HIRE - is an optional extra, we have 2 person tents and 4 person tents available for purchase. They include an inflated mattress/stretcher beds and a light. But it's BYO linen and pillows.
  •  FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED - Choose your own space/site to set up camp, whether it be a caravan, tent, camper, whatever. There's no space restrictions.
  • POWERED SITE - The per person rate does not include a powered site. You must select Powered Site as an additional inclusion if wanting power for your caravan/camper etc.  If you need only power for charging phones, hair dryer etc, there is 24hr access to 240v power in the restaurant and amenities area.
  • COOKED BREAKFAST INCLUDED - Each night you stay we include a cooked breakfast the following day. This takes the hassle out of bringing all the cooking gear, and on these glorious mornings waking up in the bush, there's nothing better than slowly easing into the day, whilst someone prepares you a tasty breakfast.
  • RETURN SHUTTLE BUS - The shuttle bus to and from Dashville is the best way to get to the concert. It is $26 per person return. The first bus departs Dashville 20mins before Concert gate opening time.  Just make sure you are aware of the particular event running times if catching the bus. We will send out an email to all bookings, before your stay to give you any information on bus times as soon as it becomes available.


  • CANCELLATIONS + REFUNDS - If an event you are attending is cancelled 14 days prior to the event, we offer full refunds. Within 14 days we offer credit transfers to a future Hunter Tent Stay opportunity. For COVID related cancellations we offer credit to a future event, or move tickets over to a new date if the venue reschedules.
