We’re so excited for Summerfest 2019! Below is all the information you need for SF19.
Registration: Every attendee must purchase a ticket to enter the Summerfest venue. There are three ticket options depending on when you choose to purchase. $79 (Early Bird) / $99 (Pre-Summer) / $114 (Christmas Special) / $129 (Regular Price)
Transport: Buses will be depart from your campus on the morning of Summerfest, getting you to the venue with enough time to check in, go for a swim or grab a coffee, all in time for our opening rally. The venue has kindly asked that we limit the number of cars driven down to Summerfest as there is no parking available on site and next to no public parking for several kilometres near the venue. You can purchase a bus ticket for $40 which can be added onto your registration at any time. For more on this see the FAQ’s below.
Accommodation: For the first time ever, EVERYONE HAS THE OPTION OF STAYING IN CABINS!! These cabins are air-conditioned and have a bathroom (toilet and shower) attached to each cabin. The cabins range from 4 person cabins all the way to 12 people. The cost for a bed in the cabin is $170 for the two nights. For the first time, you are able to make this payment in two increments of $85 if you wish to. We will keep track of all the payments and be sure to contact you before Summerfest kicks off to finalize any payments. For more on this see the FAQ’s below.
PART TIME ACCOMMODATION: If you are only coming down for one night, you will be able to select a part time accommodation option. This will be $90 and will secure you a bed in our cabins for a night (Either Thursday or Friday Night)
Accommodation Part Payment Explained: For the first time ever you will be able to split your accommodation payment into two parts. This payment will be your responsibility to make (it will not be direct debited from your account / card) our accounts team will be in contact with everyone who still requires to make up the payment before SF19. This way you’re able to spread the the cost across multiple weeks / fortnights / months.
Accommodation Allocation Explained: We will do our absolute best to allocate every person into cabins with their connect group leaders and connect members. Your best option is to make sure you select your correct campus, club and connect group leader. Clubs are (Giants, Legacy, Royals, Prodigy, Empires, Gold Coast, Noosa, Youth Leader, Not In A Club) this way we will be able to put you into the correct cabins with your friends. If you don’t have a connect group leader or club we will work to make sure you are allocated to a cabin with people you know or from your campus. For more on this see the FAQ’s below.
Amenities: While the cabins have showers and toilets attached, there is also a large shower and toilet block for males and females that is accessible for everyone staying on site. For more on this see the FAQ’s below.
Food: BREAKFAST WILL BE PROVIDED EACH MORNING (and is included in your registration fee). We will have multiple food trucks at Summerfest for you to purchase lunch and dinner each day. You’re also able to inform us of any dietary requirements on the registration page. For more on this see the FAQ’s below.

I really want to drive down, what should I do?
