PROVIDING a place to call home is proving to be a big lure for those wishing to attend the Terang Country Music Festival.

The festival began on Friday night at the Terang Racecourse and will continue today before finishing on Sunday. Over 110 caravans are expected to take up the option of free camping at the racecourse over the weekend. This year, there is a special offer for those wishing to come to Terang early or stay on after the event. Camping for just $10 a night is available at the Terang Recreation Reserve in the week leading up to and the week after the festival.

Terang Country Music Festival chairman Geoff Barby said camping was an important part of the festival.

“They come from all over, we have people coming from South Australia, New South Wales and a lot come up from Warrnambool,” Mr Barby said.

“With the camping at the recreation reserve, we are hoping to get more people coming into the town and spending time in Terang.”
