Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a ticket for the festival?
No. We are delighted to provide a free festival, thanks largely to the generosity of our wonderful partners. If you would like to contribute, you may wish to purchase a raffle ticket at the festival.

Can I camp at the festival?
Yes. Camping is available at the football oval. A $10 fee per adult will be charged to cover expenses for the weekend. Campsite fees will be collected over the weekend, and there will be an honesty box for late arrivals.
Please see the accomodation page for further accomodation options.

Do I need to book my campsite?
