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 at the Stringybark Festival.

The festival is located on the grounds of Rowville Community Centre, with 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 are connecting paths through the site. There is 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. Limited accessible parking is available at the Rowville Community Centre car park – enter from Fulham Road. Accessible toilets are provided on site. Site maps can be downloaded here or obtained on entrance to the festival.

If you have any queries regarding accessibility at the Stringybark Festival, 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.

Transport Options

We encourage you to leave your car at home and walk, ride your bike or jump on board our free Community Bus.

For bus times, please see the Community Bus timetable. Bike racks are available at the Fulham Rod entry.
