The Planting welcomes people with disabilites. we
are constantly working on ways to improve the site
and the experience for all but we do need to advise
that the festival site does offer some challenges for
those with mobility problems. The event is held on
a rural property (an old dairy farm) and the terrain
is often uneven and/or sloping. The pathways
are either dirt or gravelled and can be diffcult to
negotiate for people in wheelchairs or with mobility
problems. The disability amenity blocks provided
are clean and sturdy, but basic. If you feel that you
would beneft from the support of a carer while you
are at The Planting, it may be possible for the carer
to receive a complimentary ticket. such tickets are
allocated on a needs basis. For more info please
water is always a precious commodity at the
festival site as we are self-suffcient. we would
appreciate it if all patrons could help us in
conserving water by limiting themselves to one
short shower per day and check that taps are
not left running or dripping. All tap water on-site
is drinkable but for conservation and your own
convenience please bring all the drinking water
you’ll need with you from home.
Please help us keep the festival site clean and
green. recycling stations & industrial bins can be
found on the festival streets and at the amenities
blocks in the camping and parking areas. If
camping, please recycle as much as possible using
the recycling stations and bag your general waste.
Composting bins will be clearly labelled and placed
in the festival precinct. Please use the bins to
dispose of your organic waste as we have an on-
site compost program in place.
Visiting the eco Lodge is a must-do. Come and see
a living native beehive, bushtucker plants, a weed
display, The Pod (an eco retail outlet) and pick up
some landcare information, learn about butterfies,
browse the books and much more.
