Splendour in the Grass

Splendour in the Grass will return in 2017 to be once again hosted at North Byron Parklands, 25km north of Byron Bay on the Tweed Valley Way just north of the Yelgun interchange off the Pacific Highway. This year's event will again be held in late July, falling on the 21st-23rd and will continue to combine Music and Arts with the distinctive laid back holiday culture of Byron Bay. Rather than booking a hotel room or B & B, how about renting a campervan for the Festival? The beauty of a Campervan Rental is wherever you drive your bed is sure to follow! You get to set your own timetable and itinerary and today's vehicles are superbly equipped, spacious and surprisingly easy to drive. Byron Bay sits 165kms south of Brisbane and 624kms north of Sydney. Sure, you could fly to a closer location and hire a car but we reckon the best way to experience the festival is to extend your long weekend and make a real break of it. Why not hire a campervan either in Sydney or Brisbane and take some time out to explore the coast or hinterland before heading to North Byron Parklands? In partnership with Britz, Jucy, Maui & Mighty, DriveNow makes finding the best prices and booking a campervan easy.
