Day Tripping From Birdsville

You don’t have to camp at Bashville to attend the Big Red Bash. Instead, you can stay in Birdsville and commute to Bashville each day via shuttle bus or your own vehicle.

Day trippers can come and go from Day Parking anytime from 7am Tuesday 6th July, with no restrictions on arrival and departure times. Just tell the marshals you’re a day tripper and they’ll direct you to Day Parking.

Transfer buses run on concert days between Bashville and Birdsillve. The below table is from 2019, the 2021 timetable will be released closer to the event.

Day trippers still need to follow the Bashville Site Rules.

Make sure you plan your Birdsville accommodation in advance - town will be busy and the caravan park books out quickly. Also make sure that you know about safe outback driving since you’re likely to be driving on busy, dusty, outback roads at night.


Thanks to all of our sponsors who help us bring you this amazing event.
