Tickets cost $20 for adults and $14 for pensioners and seniors. Children under 5 can enter for free and from 6-16 tickets cost $5. Tickets can be purchased online or at the gates.
The festival is also pet friendly so bring your little friends along to enjoy the beautiful gardens. However, dogs are to be kept on a lead at all times and owners will need to clean up after their dogs.
Paid visitor parking is available next to the festival site for $5 with part proceeds donated to The Fathering Project charity and McCallum Park is highly accessible by public transport as it is a short distance from Victoria Park Transfer Station (500m walk).
