Tough Guy Book Club Camp

Each year, a committee of stalwart Goons gathers forces and plans an epic four-day gathering at scenic locations across Victoria, Australia. Tough Guy Book Club Camp is a weekend of flying axes, bonfires, beer, hikes, whiskey-tasting, talking shite and meeting up with Goons from across the country. Maybe even one day the globe!

So why come to camp?

Because camp is bloody awesome, that's why! Your ticket covers the cost of accommodation, food, beer, entertainment, and a bunch of activities that you are sure to love! Along with the great chance to meet some of our awesome goons from around the country.


When buying your camp ticket, you can select an installment ticket and pay $50 at a time, or pay the full amount which varies depending on the state your chapter is based in. Note that this year you will receive a monthly statement by email letting you know how many installments you have purchased.

Full payment will be required no later than 14 days before the first day of camp.

When to buy a ticket?

Ticket sales generally open a few months before camp and can be purchased from our store link on this page. If you are thinking of coming to camp, we encourage you to buy your tickets ASAP. As of this year we will be putting a capacity limit on ticket sales due to the increased attendance. Final payments are due two-weeks before camp and we’ll make sure to let you know to fix up any outstanding amounts. See here for the full ticket sales Terms and Conditions.

Is there anywhere else to find out more information about TGBC Camp?

All those who have bought all or part of their ticket will receive a camp information pack with more detail on what to expect from the trip, what to bring, and what to plan for. We will also have an event page on Facebook for interested and attending Goons. This is the best place to ask questions, connect with others coming to camp and stay up to date with the latest camp information. Find the latest event here: See our Facebook Event
