The main points to note are:
Bookings must be made to guarantee that you can get up the mountain only if you plan to arrive after 4:30am and before 10:00am on Saturday or Sunday mornings and only during the peak period of 25th July to 27th September.
If the carpark is fully booked and you don’t have a booking you will be turned away at Scoria flat.
Once the carparks are full it will be one car down, one car up.
There is a system if you just want to go up drop people & gear off and come back down. There is a time window to complete this in. You must return to Scoria Flat and check out.
Carpark 1 is now a day park only (it was an overnight park).
