Accessibility and further details:
  • The venue of Queens Gardens has sealed paths surrounding three sides and through the space. The remainder of the surfaces are grass. Marquees surround the outside of the gardens but will not be on paths. There will not be sealed path access to all stall holders.
  • Onsite there is an all accessible, all gender bathroom. In addition, there are two other all gender bathrooms. At the event there may also be two portaloo’s that require a person to step up to use them.
  • There is lots of traffic moving along two of the streets the garden sits between, and the space is not fenced. There will be lots of people, some animals on leads, or restrained, and live music on stage between the hours of the event. The Gardens is a vast space and there are spaces that offer less noise onsite.
  • There are some tables and chairs provided near the food trucks. We suggest bringing a picnic rug to sit on and enjoy the day.
  • There will be an information tent on site with volunteers always present for support or questions. Volunteers will also be in other locations within the Queens Gardens. All volunteers will have an OUTintheOPEN barnded t-shirt and a rainbow lanyard on them.
  • There will be local LLO (LGBTIQA+ liaison Officer’s) Victoria Police staff on site at this event to support our LGBTIQA+ community.
  • Animals on leads or restrained are welcome at this event. Pet owners are responsible for supervising and cleaning up after their animals.
  •  Please email enquiries@outintheopen.org.au for further information or any questions in relation to Carnival Day.

This event takes place on the lands of the Yorta Yorta people. Goulburn Valley Pride and the OUTintheOPEN Festival acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which we live, work and play, the eight clans of the Yorta Yorta Nation. We also pay our respects to their Elders past and present. On the land of the Goulburn Valley, sovereignty was never ceded.

This event is part of the Out in the Open Festival.
