Jubilee Lake Holiday Park
151 Lake Rd, Daylesford,
We’ll use the Jubilee Lake Holiday Park as our base once again for doing some walks in the Daylesford region whilst also participating in the ChillOut Festival. This park is a little out of the centre of Daylesford, but much less crowded than the caravan park beside the ChillOut Carnival site.
GRADE | TYPE: Easy, social. Associated with walks varying from easy to medium and social ChillOut Festival activities.
There are many events you can attend as part of ChillOut Festival, which is regional Australia’s largest LGBTQI festival, and the Nomads have also organised a number of walks to coincide with it. The Jubilee Lake Holiday Park is a little out of the centre of Daylesford, but nicer and much less crowded than the caravan park beside the ChillOut Carnival site, thus making a great base for your ChillOut long weekend.
Some activities to consider attending include:
Saturday 10:15am: The Nomads ChillOut Community Saturday Morning Walk, including morning tea
Saturday 2:30pm: The Nomads Mixed Naturist Bushwalk and optional Swim, including afternoon tea
Saturday evening: the BBQ at the camp ground or one of the many ChillOut events
Sunday 10am: ChillOut Festival Pride Parade (free)
Sunday 11am: ChillOut Festival Carnival (see prices below)
Monday 10am: The Nomads Daylesford to Sailors Falls Circuit Walk.
MEETING TIME | LOCATION: 1-10pm on Friday 6th March at the Jubilee Lake Holiday Park, Daylesford.
MAP REFERENCE: Melway map X909 grid C9 | Google map goo.gl/maps/cXKMzKvqni22.
DISTANCE | TIME FROM GPO: Via Western Fwy 118 km, 1 hour 30 minutes | via Calder Fwy 117 km, 1 hour 35 minutes.
ACCOMMODATION: The Nomads “base camp” will be a cluster of four unpowered camp sites. Although each site can only officially have one car parked beside the tents, it can include a number of tents (and a number of people). If car parking beside the tents becomes overcrowded, additional cars can be parked in the car park near the office, which is fairly close by. We have booked and paid deposits for four sites with the understanding that we can make some adjustments to the booking a week prior to ChillOut, but it would be helpful if you could get a ticket ASAP if you are planning to attend. Because this is a high season weekend, we needed to book each site for a minimum of three nights.
COST: The Nomads have booked the sites – you don’t need to book individually! The cost per person for camping will be $15 per person per night. The leader will collect each participant’s accommodation contribution upon their arrival at the park.
Note for non-members: the ChillOut weekend consists of a number of Nomads events. If you take out a 1 month temporary membership (cost $8) prior to booking any events, you won’t need to pay the $5 visitor fees to any of these events. Once you have taken out your membership, to confirm your bookings select Get Tickets on each event that you wish to attend.
