Driving/parking instructions

  • A drop-off zone at the old Scout’s bottle dump on Yarra Street, opposite the old petrol station, is available for parents/guardians to drop off and pick up children
  • In this area, you can drive in, drop off your kids and their goodies and then drive on to find a car park elsewhere
  • The drop off zone will be only for unloading, not for parking, and drivers will need to remain in their cars. Please bring an additional parent/ adult with you to help the kids carry their goodies to their sites

We hope this assists parents and kids and recommend that all items brought are easy to carry.
