Car Parking

Only Official Gilweroo vehicles are to remain in the park during the weekend.

Gilweroo will be operating a shuttle bus between Bay Park and our off-site carpark.

Old Moorooduc Rd Car Park & Staging Area

The off-site carpark is located at 31 Old Moorooduc Road, Dromana. This carpark will be used as a staging area for all people attending Gilweroo. All vehicles, except those with special permits, will be expected to present at the carpark and all their occupants will be shuttled to the Bay Park area. For those drivers staying for the weekend, they will be directed to park their vehicles and travel by shuttle bus to Bay Park. Permits will be provided for vehicles with troop camping gear, supplies  and trailers that can be dropped to the campsite. These vehicles will then need to be taken to the off-site carpark.

Vehicle Policy

The following summarises Gilweroo's Vehicle Policy for 2021.

  • All vehicles entering Joseph Harris Park (Bay Park) from 5pm to 12 midnight on Friday November 16 must be pre-Registered on the Gilweroo Service Desk at Gilweroo Service Requests.

  • All vehicles entering Joseph Harris Park (Bay Park) after 4pm on Sunday November 18 must be pre-Registered on the Gilweroo Service Desk.

  • The only exceptions to these rules will be Emergency Service Vehicles and Gilweroo Official Vehicles.

  • All vehicles using the Gilweroo Off-site Car Park at 31 Old Moorooduc Road, Dromana, must be pre-Registered on the Gilweroo Service Desk.

  • Gilweroo Official vehicles will be issued with a permit that must be displayed in the windscreen.

  • On Friday evening, registered vehicles are permitted to drive to the Scout Group's Campsite for the sole purpose of delivering equipment. They are permitted to remain for a reasonable time to allow unloading. Once unloaded, they must be removed to the carpark location immediately.

  • On Sunday afternoon, registered vehicles are permitted to drive to the Scout Group's Campsite for the sole purpose of collecting equipment.

  • Trailers are permitted to be left at the campsite over the weekend, provided they do NOT obstruct other vehicular movement or neighbouring campsites. They must be adequately secured. See Trailers at Gilweroo.

  • Vehicles parked on other Troop sites on Friday night will be removed. Any damage sustained during this removal will be the responsibility of the vehicle owner. Removal will be effected using either flat-top towage or chained and dragged by a 4x4 vehicle. 

  • A Scout pickup zone will be established on Sunday afternoon in the offsite carpark. Vehicles collecting just people and their personal belongings are directed to that car park and proceed to the pickup zone. If the passengers are not present when the vehicle arrives at the pickup zone, the vehicle can be parked at the direction of the Gilweroo staff at the site.

Gilweroo staff will be patrolling campsite areas to ensure that these rules are adhered to. Any driver directed to move their vehicle must do so within 5 minutes of this request.
