Pre-purchase and save

Traditionally, Australia Day long weekends at seaside venues cost a bomb! But… think again with the Island Classic at Phillip Island.

The tour opens its campsites to ticket holders, and suddenly four nights of camping in a spectacular seaside location is yours for a fraction of the cost you would normally pay.

But the trick is to buy ahead and secure your campsite early.

Wrap your three-day event ticket with four nights of circuit camping, and the cost of your Island Classic getaway — admission and camping with a view of Bass Strait — will be just $167 pre-booked.

Better yet, bring the family, as kids 15 and under are free for camping and event admission, if accompanied by a paying adult.

If camping isn’t your choice, a pre-purchased three-day adult pass will cost $84, up from $95 at the gate, while a pre-purchased three-day concession ticket is $54 – a savings of $16 on the price of the door. Tickets are also available for individual days, but buying in advance saves you considerable dollars.

Reservations for pre-purchased general admission and camping tickets close at noon on Thursday, January 23.
