Getting There

Need help finding your way here? We are here to help.

General Admission

General Admission tickets are available at a discounted rate until one week before the event. Get yours here to save yourself money and help us hire the venue. Door tickets are available at a slightly higher rate, for cash only. We apologise for the fact that credit cards aren't currently accepted, but we are investigating affordable options for future events.

Public Transport

Katoomba Leura Community Centre is less than 5mins walk from Katoomba train station. If we hear of any surprise trackwork causing service interruptions, we will post it here. You can check yourself via this link.

Driving and Parking

Driving here? We are less than 2hrs drive from Sydney, exactly 2hrs from Orange, 1.5hrs from Parramatta or Bathurst, less than an hour from Penrith, 40mins from Lithgow.

Parking around Katoomba on a Saturday? It's not bad. We'd love to suggest certain spots, but if you obey the signs, you'll avoid any fines.


About the Venue

Since 2016, the event has been hosted at the Katoomba Leura Community Centre. Should this ever change, we will update this page prior to ticket sales.

Features & Facilities

All gaming areas and one bathroom are wheelchair-accessible. Some food options exist within the venue, and many others right outside. Water dispensers will be refilled regularly, but in the interest of the environment, please bring your own water bottle to reduce waste. There are heating systems for the cold months, just let us know if you're uncomfortable and we'll try our best to keep everyone equally at ease.
