Getting around – access issues
Natimuk is a small town, but after you have walked from one end to the other and back again in the pursuit of high-quality art experiences your feet may be feeling it. Bring a bike (and lock if your bike is precious) and/or some comfy shoes. Access around Natimuk will require navigation across cracked and sometimes none existent footpaths, please be aware of this as you plan your festival experience. The Festival HUB will be open 10am – 5pm and will provide a wheelchair battery recharge station during this time.
There are limited venues within the township so performances may take place in Band Rotunda’s, old shed’s, historic goal cells, someone’s front room, disused garages – you get the idea. This means that access can be difficult. Not all the venues are suitable for disabled access but we will try and support our audience where we can. If you would like more information please give us a call or send us an email.
