The Showground also houses big theatre-style halls that can seat up to 1,000 guests. In addition, the Showgrounds boasts several small halls, suitable for exhibitions.

The Mount Gambier Showgrounds is also home to a small, yet fully serviced campground. This campground is perfect for small groups of campers and backpackers, with water, shower and toilet facilities available. Campers can come here any time, but please note that the sites are offered on a first-come-first-served basis. The campsite is also well-equipped to accommodate many larger self-contained motorhomes, RVs and buses; with plenty of unpowered sites available.

There are no reservation options or credit card systems available for these camp sites, so campers must make their payment in cash to the camp hosts, Rob & Marg, who live on site.

Although the campgrounds are open all year-round, guests are advised to check the event schedule at the showgrounds before planning to come here. As the showground hosts many major events, the availability of these campgrounds does vary.

  • Hi,

    We’re planning on travelling to SA and staying for a few nights at Mt Gambier Showgrounds during mid March 2014.

    Can you please advise what the tariff would be? We will be travelling with another couple with two caravans.

    Hope to hear from you soon.


    • Hi Toni,

      I have checked the official website and they have 9 Double Powered Sites and prices are stated to be from $20 per night.

      Considering the Easter holidays are from 18-21 April in 2014, I doubt your dates would be considered peak.

      The number listed is 0408 492 182, so perhaps give them a call and book in ahead of time.


  • We stayed at the Showgrounds in our caravan for a week and couldn’t fault it. The camp hosts were fantastic, the grounds well looked after and the ablution block clean and well maintained. At $20/night for a powered site we grey nomads are well catered for – thank you for the opportunity.
