Seating - You will need to bring your own picnic rug. Low chair without legs are permitted on site. If you require the standard sized chair for mobility issues you will be asked to position yourself at the back of the crowd closest to the bar and food service area.

Food & Beverages - Food can be purchased from the food stalls and drinks from the bars set up on site. Bars and food stalls will be open from gate opening times. Strictly no BYO alcohol or unsealed beverage containers. You may bring your own food into the venue.

Gates Open - The venue gates open at 6pm, you may queue before this time. Generally the crowd starts to line up from 4.30pm to be able to access the best vantage point at the front. If having the best vantage point at the front does not bother you then you may enter at any time as there is loads of room for everyone!

Gates Close - The event concludes at 12:30am. The venue will be cleared of patrons altogether by 1am. Please respect the neighbours as you leave and note that the neighbouring streets and parks are alcohol-free zones.

Transport - Very limited parking is available in the nearby area. We recommend walking, cycling or catching Public Transport. Call 131 500 for more info.
Taxis and buses are available to the event and after the event it is best to take a bus (that will pick you up from the venue) to Bondi Junction or Edgecliff station. Note, additional services will run on the evening making your journey home as easy as possible.

NYE Road Closures - Many of the roads around Dudley Page Reserve will be closed on New Year's Eve. Check live traffic website.

Money - There is eftpos available at the bar, but not at the entrance. Some food stalls may have eftpos, so we recommend bringing some extra cash just in case.

Parking - We strongly recommend that everyone catches buses which generally exit the venue in approx 30 to 60 mins. The neighbouring roads are closed from 3pm to 2am so even if you were able to find a car space it would be a long way from the event.

Dress - The venue is grass underfoot so it is advisable to wear comfortable flat shoes.
