GETTING STARTED AS A PRIVATE SITE
Do I Qualify?
If you're a Campsite Owner Member of the Association and have at least 2,000 sqm (half an acre) of fairly level land or areas where it is, then you'll qualify!
We offer membership for:
- Combination campsites (RVs and tents);
- RV Only campsites (no tents); and
- Tent Only campsites (no RVs with the exemption of camper trailers – also suitable for sites where access is particularly poor or 4WD only).
There are many different reasons why private property owners choose to look into having their own Private Site, whether it is for extra income, or just the pleasure of meeting new people, making friends, or sharing the beautiful surroundings with others.
But the main reason why you would partner with the Association is that WE WILL INSURE YOU for allowing our members to camp and participate in associated activities on your land, with an indemnity limited to $20 million public liability insurance cover for legal liabilities arising from claims made against you that involves either bodily injury or property damage to a third party.
Plus, in the unlikely event that a claim is directed at you ‘as an individual', rather than as a representative/ official of the Associaiton's activities, the Association also provides to you the benefit of ‘Directors & Officers Liability' insurance which provides indemnity against ‘wrongful acts' committed by ‘individuals' acting on behalf of a camping or associated activity held under the auspices of the Association.
As a benefit of membership, we will provide you with the Private Site Handbook, which contains the policy, organisation and rules to be a Private Site, as well as:
- Noting you as an insured interest on our public liability policy
- A dedicated department of specialist advisors
- Access to thousands of Club Members
- Entry into our online campsite directory
- Online Club Membership
- Site assessment by our Campsite Officers
- Access to unique discounts online
The approval process can take from as little as 4 weeks from filling out the application form, to welcoming your first campers.
Our Guide to Setting Up A Private Site, will give you more information about what setting up and operating a Private Site is all about and how we will protect you when letting our Members onto your land. You will need to read this guide as part of the application process. The guide is free and should answer any questions you might have at this stage.
