A valid ID listed below to allow you entry into Oktoberfest Parklands:
Current valid Australian driver’s license (with photo)
Government issued proof of age card
Debit or credit cards! We’re making life easy and taking a leaf out of Coachella’s book with a 100% tap & go event, which means bring your debit card, credit card, Andriod or iPhone (with mobile wallet enabled) and get ready to tap & go. Every bar, food truck, sideshow alley (and even the merch tent) will only take payment with a Visa, Mastercard, AMEX debit or credit card, or your NFC enabled smart phone with tap & go functionality. This means no tokens, no ATM machine charges and no hassles!
Cash will not be accepted at Oktoberfest Parklands. You must bring your debit or credit card which has ‘tap & go’ functionality.
