The Festival precinct is relatively flat with a mix of grass and paved surfaces, and we strive to make all outdoor venues as physically accessible as possible.

Accessible amenities are available throughout the precinct and after hours on the lower level of QM.

Experienced Auslan theatre interpreters stand to the side of the stage and interpret dialogue and any text into Auslan, signing live.
