This is Queensland, so it is likely to be hot and sunny during the day, get cold as soon as the sun goes down or it will rain. Keep this in mind and you will remain comfortable throughout GNW.

Please bring sunscreen, a good hat, make sure you drink plenty of (non-alcoholic) fluids, bring plenty of clothing, a warm coat/cape and some way of protecting your gear from the rain. Bring plastic bags or bins in which you can store your clothing and bedding if the rain gets really bad.

Wool coats, cloaks and hoods are your best bet for keeping yourself warm and dry – wool sheds water well, and will still keep you warm if it gets a bit damp; synthetics will not. The site can be very green and grassy.

Mud is more likely to be an issue – you should aim to bring some sturdy weatherproof shoes, boots, or patens.


The event site is 10 hectares of lightly wooded dairy pasture, bordering the Logan River. There are numerous rocky hills on site, please travel safety and watch you footing as they maybe slippery when wet.

There is a creek running through the site and it is not recommended for anyone to swim in it. There are many possible dangers hidden – and the safety of the water cannot be guaranteed. Keep to pathways where possible there can be hidden holes or slippery mud. If you do come across an area that is dangerous please inform the constable ASAP so they can deal with the situation further.
