Accessibility Information

Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is available at Fairfield Showground. There are a total of 16 accessible parking spaces. Please display your mobility parking scheme permit on your dashboard.

 There is a drop-off zone at the Smithfield Road entrance. 

Accessible Toilets

Accessible toilets (larger, wider cubicle with door opening outwards) are available at the Parklands Function Centre at Fairfield Showground.

Drop-Off Zone

Patrons can organise to be dropped off and picked up in designated ‘No Parking’ pick up and set down area located near the entrance of Gate 2.

Drivers are permitted to stop for up to 2 minutes to drop off or pick up passengers or goods in areas designated as ‘No Parking’. However, when in the ‘No Parking’ zone, drivers must remain within 3 metres of their vehicle.

Guide Dogs and Service Animals

Guide dogs and service animals are welcome to attend the event but we would ask they display their identification badge or medallion at all times. Due to the nature of the event, please consider whether your dog/service animal will be comfortable with crowds and noise. You might consider the use of an alternative aid if attending the event.

Quieter Areas

Whilst everyone is welcome to attend the event, if you prefer less people, the quieter area of the event is under the large awning or the outskirts of the sports field.

The event is a fun place to be with a hive of activity, however we understand that some families supporting people with a disability, may have to plan their day more carefully to ensure there is some quiet time and space to relax.

We understand that some people with physical or invisible disabilities may find the noisy environment challenging.

We encourage carers to bring their own noise cancellation headphones, ear plugs or devices to help people who are unable to cope with the noise generated at busy places and from amusement rides.

Public Transport

Accessible trips are shown in the Trip Planner with the wheelchair icon.  You can select 'accessible services only' in the options to display accessible public transport services. See accessible travel or download a transport app (select the 'Accessibility' filter).
