Coach & Tour Group Operators
Special Group Ticket Price
Special group ticket prices are made available to groups of 10 or more people. The price for the 2013 Show is $19 per person at the gate. We recommend group organisers book groups to attend the event on either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday for the comfort and convenience of their passengers, as these days are less crowded than the weekend.
Coach & Bus “Drop Off” Area
A five (5) minute limit coach/bus pick up/drop off area is available in Nicholson Street, adjacent to the Royal Exhibition Building between Gertrude & Carlton Streets.
This area will display signage identifying it as a Bus Touring Zone to drop off and pick up passengers. Clients should be advised to return to this area at a pre-determined hour for their return journey.
Drivers cannot remain parked within the drop off / pick up area and will incur heavy fines from parking officers if the time limit is exceeded. You must move to the satellite parking facility in Bouverie Street.
Satellite Parking Coach & Buses
The satellite parking facility has been designated on the east side of Bouverie Street, between Victoria and Queensberry Streets.
The existing 2-hour metered parking spaces will be converted to bus parking and this area will accommodate 8-9 tour bus/coaches at any one time. This area will be signed for bus parking from 7.30am to 9.30pm Wednesday to Sunday for the duration of the event.
Drivers wishing to return to the venue will need to make their own arrangements regarding transportation back to the venue and should be in uniform if they wish to access the show free of charge.
