Getting There


Grow Your Own is held on Harry Elliott Oval, Beach Street in Tuncurry on the Mid North Coast of NSW.


Wondering how to get to the festival site locally? If you're not driving, our PREPAID chartered busses are the best option!
For $15 return, you can hop on and off at any of the stops shown on the map below, at the times listed in the table below.
At the festival, you'll be greeted by our lovely Grow Your Own staff. They'll scan your prepaid bus ticket (please ensure this is not your festival ticket!). They'll also give you a bus wristband - this is your return ticket & indicates you've paid. Without it, security will not permit you to leave the bus zone for the festival gates, so please prepay, scan, & keep your wristband on til you get home!

Busses will be departing from the same drop-off point, so please meet there for your return trip. And of course, enjoy your day in between!
