Getting to the Festival
How to Find Us
Located 15km south of Narooma and 19km north of Bermagui, Tilba is easy to reach, just follow the Princes Highway from either direction and you will see the signs to Corkhill Drive at Tilba Tilba.
Important Changes to Parking
ALL Festival parking is now at Tilba Tilba Oval. A free shuttle will run all day from Tilba Tilba Oval to the Festival gate at Central Tilba and return to Tilba Tilba from the Bus Stop.
There will be NO PARKING at Central Tilba at all. The paddock that we usually use for Central Tilba parking is completely waterlogged and cannot be used for vehicles.
Cobargo Scouts will be coordinating all the parking on the Oval. We are very grateful to these volunteers for their support under challenging circumstances. Please be patient with them, and the traffic management team, on the day.
The first shuttle bus will leave Tilba Tilba Oval at 8.30am. The Opening Ceremony is at the Najanuga Stage right next to the entry gates at 9.00am.
We recommend that visitors wear appropriate footwear for the conditions!
People with accessibility issues
Visitors with accessibility issues can request access through the road closure at Tilba Tilba and be driven to the Festival gate to be dropped off. However there is no parking at this point. The driver will have to return to Tilba Tilba to park the car and take the shuttle bus to the Festival.
Alternatively these visitors can park on the Oval and make the short walk to the shuttle bus stop on Corkhill Drive. There will be a limited number of disabled spots available nearer the bus stop but we cannot guarantee availability on the day.
Visitors with dogs
Unfortunately, dogs (except assistance dogs) are not permitted on the bus. It will be possible to access Central Tilba from Tilba Tilba to drop your dog, if it is left with a supervising adult, but the driver MUST return to Tilba Tilba Oval to park the car and get a shuttle bus to the Festival. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you choose to leave your dog at home.
We love dogs and we are very sorry about this!
Stallholders and musicians
If you are a stallholder or musician we will still be able to provide you with parking once you have bumped in your stall/equipment. If the arrangement previously communicated to you has changed, you will receive an email with new instructions. Otherwise, please assume your plan is unchanged.
Local businesses and residents parking: Please make plans to move your car off Bate Street by 6am Saturday morning – preferably the night before – noting that Marshmead is no longer available.
If you have already purchased tickets and have, as a result of the changed plans, decided not to attend the festival, please email Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a full refund.
Tickets can be pre-purchased online (https://www.southcoasttickets.com.au/events/tilba-festival-22/) and will also be available on the gate with card payment only. We regret we cannot take cash on the gate. There are no ATMs available on the gate or in town. Tickets are $15 per adult, $5 for concessions and entry is free for children under 16. You can also download the Festival programme from the website.
