PARK AND RIDE

The Abbey Museum has secured a property nearby (on Pumicestone Rd) where our patrons can park and we have arranged free buses to transport you on the 5 minute trip to the festival site. (If you’re a local you may know this as the old Farm Fantastic site)

We encourage patrons to go directly to the Pumicestone Rd carpark (just off the highway) and catch the free shuttle bus from there. You will receive your wristbands prior to getting on the bus so on arriving at the Festival you can walk straight in (bag checks will apply).

For ease of directions, you can click the button link below on your phone and it should navigate you from your location to the parking site.

Prams can be transported in the hold under the bus
