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!

2022 saw us host two camps and TGBC Camp 2023 is on the horizon!

So why come to camp?

Because camp is bloody awesome, that's why! Your ticket covers the cost of accommodation, food, beer and a bunch of activities that we’ll put on too.

When and where to buy a ticket?

Ticket sales generally open 3 months before camp and can be purchased from our store link on this page. Tickets cost $500 and can be paid for in instalments of $50. This means you can buy a full ticket over a total of 10x instalments. For non-Victorian Goons, the total number of instalments required will be reduced as part of the travel subsidy. Discount details are available in the FAQs below.
