Visitor Info & FAQ's


Ticketing Changes

To keep you COVID safe during your visit we have made some changes to how we are selling tickets. To comply with social distancing regulations we have put limits on the number of people entering at any one time.

With entry numbers capped per hour, if you find the weekend times you want are sold out we encourage you to visit in the afternoons, or Friday.

Also, all tickets must be pre-purchased online and registered to the person attending the event, to comply with Queensland Health contact tracing requirements.

What’s changed?

  • You will need to select a time you want to attend from when booking e.g. Friday at 10am. You can enter anytime from that time, and stay as long as you want, you just cannot enter before your selected time.
  • Ticket numbers are limited per hour. Once sold out the system will show other times that are available, until sold out
  • All tickets must be purchased online prior to the event. Tickets will not be sold at the gate to comply with Queensland Health Contact Tracing and Social Distancing requirements
  • Each person needs to be individually registered for contact tracing requirements, including all children and infants attending.

Our time slots act as allocated entry times. E.g if you have purchased a ticket for 10am, you are able to enter the show any time from 10am. There are no restrictions on the amount of time you are allowed to spend at the Show. The allocated entry times are designed to manage crowds at busy peaks and  to allow for social distancing;
