Make your way to the show office just inside the show entrance off Hamer Street, next to Pavilion 1, where the show team will assist you.
What if I am injured or become unwell?
We have an onsite St Johns first aid responder, as well as health and safety policies in place to deal with any situation.
What should I bring?
We suggest bring comfortable footwear, sunhats and sunscreen and to leave pets at home. Baby carriers are recommended for young children, as space is very limited on the marina for pushchairs and may be prohibitive during busy periods.
Can I smoke or vape?
No, unfortunately we don’t allow smoking or vaping anywhere in the show – indoors or outdoors – to ensure the safety and comfort of all our visitors.
Is the show accessible friendly?
Yes, however the marina has limited and narrow access in some places, and at low tide the marina ramps may be too steep for manual wheelchairs. Discretion is required.
