On arrival you need to check in at the admin area. Registration opens at 2pm.

All children aged 0-10 year olds in Kids Zones will need to check in at their venues with their caregiver from 3.30-5pm.


Saturday Open Night
New Wine’s fun and not to be missed – but if you can’t make it for the whole time come along to the free night on Saturday to check us out for next year.

Night entertainment
We can’t really call it the programme, there’s going to be stuff happening all over the site this year during the afternoon and evening. Let us know if you can juggle, dance, handle a bongo drum, cook or even fire breathe.


Are there disabled facilities?
A paraplegic shower and toilet is available on site.

Are there laundry facilities?
Yes there are

Where do I pitch my tent?
The tenting site is part of the overall festival venue, hardly a stones throw away. But don’t worry about your beauty sleep, we’ll make sure noise is kept to a minimum.

Will tent sites be additional cost?
You get a free tent site as part of your registration. It doesn’t matter if you camp on site or a take accommodation off-site, the New Wine cost is the same.


Can I bring my pets?
No pets are allowed on site except aid dogs.


What cooking facilities are on site?
If you’re keen to self cater then we’ve got the kitchen and dining room areas set aside just for you. BYO pots and pans; plates, knives and forks and maybe even the barbie. Leave your kitchen sink and fridge at home though as we’ve got them.

If you’d rather not think about having to cook, that’s fine. Book a meal ticket for breakfast, lunch and dinner. $100 per person for those 13 and older. $65 for 0-12 year olds.

Will food be at an additional cost?
Prices exclude food.
