Please make sure to bring all pre-purchased entry tickets with you on the day. Emails, bank statements etc. cannot be honoured for entry.
There are EFTPOS machines on site, however, cash will make your life much easier. Withdrawals will charge a $3 transaction fee and queues are likely to form during busy times.
We all hope for a fine day to enjoy the Show, but due to the majority of activities being outside, please don’t forget your sunblock, hat and sunnies. Plenty of water is also advised.
Getting into and leaving the show can be busy, make sure you have planned your journeys to ensure they are as easy as possible.
Food and Drink
We have a great selection of food and drink stools providing a varied selection of refreshments on the day. However, you are welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy instead. We do not allow alcohol to be brought onto the site, with bars being available should you want a tipple.
