Using This Site
A Quick Hint: To make access to this site easier from your smart device, add an icon to your Home Screen.
(Tap the menu button and tap Add to Home Screen. Enter a name for the shortcut. The icon will appear on your home screen like any other app shortcut or widget, so you can drag it around and put it wherever you like).
Enter either a Name, a Location, a Date (or any combination), then press FIND EVENTS. (Note: the location search is set to within 100 km of your input town/city).
Select any checkbox within the filters (expand if necessary). The results are automatically generated.
Results can be viewed as a List (default), Month, Week, Map or Photos. (Use drop down menu).
Clicking on an event icon or the event name will show that events details.
It’s best to view the map in Full Screen mode. By default, all the events are shown. You can filter by month by selecting the relevant month from the Legend on the left, then navigate on the map by moving to the area you are interested in and zooming in. You can also expand the Index to show all the events in each category for each month by clicking on the Expand symbol (v).
Terminology Used On This Site
Categories: Events have been put into categories that generally reflect what they about, but it may happen that an event can be covered by several categories, such as musical acts, entertainment, games, parades, stalls etc. Cultural Festivals are events that encompass street parades, entertainment, stalls, etc. Special Events can include car and machinery displays, demonstrations, workshops, competitions etc.
Cost: The cost listed is the minimum entry fee for one adult entry for that event. (The minimum amount mentioned may only be a day entry fee for one day of a weekly event costing hundreds of dollars).
Free + indicates that at those events some venues are free to attend, but some venues are ticketed.
Age Suitability: This is a guide only. Even though most of the events are classified for All ages, some events are only suitable for Adults (mainly for the consumption of alcohol), and some are really only suitable for the 18-35 age group where crowds and noise may be a factor. Some events are legally restricted to 18+.
Camping: The range of camping can be quite diverse, from tents to large RVs, so check with the event’s website to see what is available.
CampPets indicates that pets are allowed at the camping areas but not at the event venues.
Alcohol: The majority of events have licensed areas, so no alcohol can be brought in. Some are totally alcohol free and some do allow you to bring your own alcohol (BYO). Noted where possible.
Frequency, Mobile coverage, Pets: – self explanatory.
