Travel

A typical 2wd vehicle can access the site.

For many attending from Perth, the Wasteland is a 7hr drive from Perth. You should plan to leave yourself plenty of time to travel, be sure your vehicle is prepared for the trip prior to leave and carry a spare tyre/jack etc. Whilst driving ensure you plan for and have adequate breaks, rotate drivers and ensure your vehicle is not overpacked.

Currency

Welcome to the wasteland where old-world pennies are no longer an acceptable form of currency. Instead, bottlecaps (caps) rule the wasteland!

Pre-purchase your bottlecaps prior to arriving in the wasteland or buy them at POX-ECLIPSE from the Bank.

Unused bottlecaps can be returned to the Bank for transferring to old-world money.

Sustenance and Hygiene

Food vendors are on site and the event is licenced. BYO alcohol is not permitted.

Food, drinks and ice will be purchased using POX's currency;- Bottlecaps.

No fires or burn barrels are allowed in general camping, but gas stoves are permitted.

Weirdly, recycling bins survived around wasteland - please use them. Please leave the wasteland as you found it and take all rubbish back to the old-world.

There are showers available in Cue, with daily bus services running.

Vendors

We aim to have several wasteland vendors at POX-ECLIPSE. Vendors will accept bottlecap currency only. We expect alcohol drinks to cost 1 cap, food to cost 1-2 caps. The menu will be released approximately 1-2 weeks prior to the event. Unless otherwise signed, we encourage bartering in Batertown.

Weather

The weather out on the wasteland is expected to be clear skies with mid-highs 20's during the days moving to colder nights at 10 degs. Rain is not expected, but possible. You should plan and prepare appropriately. Read more here.

Fires are not permitted in general camping, the township will be a warm place to meet and trade with other survivors.
