Where will the toilets be?

What transport is available to and from the event?
WALKING - If you can, this is best for the event, best for you and best for the environment! Naturally parking becomes an issue with so many attending, so parking blocks away and walking can also help.
BICYCLE - Although do bring a bike-lock to lock your bike up at Bar Beach. Space is limited on the grass!
DRIVE - This year we've had to close some of the roads due to larger crowds so parking is limited. If you are driving we suggest you carpool. There will be parking available in the bar beach carpark as well as street parking in the surrounding suburbs.
UBER / TAXI - A great option is to be dropped off to avoid parking
BUS - Local buses will be running
what do I do if I need help?
There will be volunteers available on the night & an information stand to assist you. Please do not approach the MC or band members for information on the evening.
Is carols by the beach an alcohol free event?
