Wondering if you should drive to the show or catch the bus? Wonder no longer. When it comes to car or bus, you should definitely catch the bus.
We employ an army of police and traffic control staff after the show to help cars leave as quickly as possible, but the Pokolbin road system blocks up really quickly and we can’t control that. Even though we offer VIP Parking with some of our hospitality packages, you’re still looking at a long wait. Especially after an amazing night of fun with friends and family, you would be tired and your tolerance for getting out and back to your accommodation would be at an all-time low.
Meanwhile, the buses leave on dedicated roads at the back of the winery and get thousands of people home in quick time. Plus, you aren’t driving so you get the luxury of having that last glass of wine or an extra boogie to tire you out without worrying about the safety issues of getting home.
For Hunter and Central Coast destinations, including handy stops at all the major wine region hotels, use Rover Coaches. If you’re coming from Sydney, use Zepher Tours. You’ll arrive home much faster in a much happier state of mind.
We strongly recommend that anyone who requires a chair purchase a reserved seat as we cannot guarantee that BYO folding chairs will be allowed in the General Admission section at every concert. For major concert events chairs will not be permitted. Smaller concert may allow low lying chairs.
If chairs are allowed, a notice will be published on the specific concerts information page.
If chairs are allowed, then low chairs with a seating height of no more than 15cm off the ground are allowed into the venue. Preferably chairs with no legs or very short (5cm) legs. No full height folding chairs are allowed in at any concert. The restriction on chair size is to ensure all patrons can see the act and no safety hazards arise from oversized chairs.
Please be aware that while these are reserved seat shows, patrons may stand during the performance.
