Accessibility at the festival

Knox City Council is committed to making Council’s festivals and events accessible to all community members. Please find details below regarding accessibility that were available at the Stringybark Festival.

The festival which is located on the grounds of Rowville Community Centre, had stalls and activities situated throughout the site including inside the community centre and the indoor basketball courts, on sealed pathways, the outdoor basketball and tennis courts as well as on the grass. There were connecting paths through the site. The site has a steep incline and decline located south of the playground, which may be difficult for a non-motorised mobility aid to go up or down unassisted. There was limited accessible parking available at the Rowville Community Centre car park – enter from Fulham Road. Accessible toilets were provided on site.

If you have any queries regarding accessibility at the Stringybark Festival or any other Knox City Council event, please call the Festival and Events team on 9298 8000 or email events@knox.vic.gov.au and we will be happy to try and assist you with any access requirements.
