Visitors to the Australian International Airshow should be aware that the event is not held on a purpose built site and can pose some challenges for the very young, the elderly or those with mobility issues.
Every effort has been made to make the site as accessible as possible, however visitors should note there are uneven surfaces throughout many areas.
Specific facilities are available for those visitors with disabilities, including disabled toilets, rest areas and viewing platforms.
A companion card ticket is also available, with the holders of the card given free entry when attending with the person they care for.
Disabled parking is available near the front entrance for those with the relevant parking stickers.
Due to the large number of visitors to the site, car parking can also be some considerable distance from the front entrance, and the site itself is extremely large to walk around.
We would recommend as an option to mobility impaired visitors that you consider catching a V/Line train service from either Melbourne or Geelong to Lara station and utilise the shuttle bus from Lara station to the bus terminal on-site at AIRSHOW 2017.
It can be a much shorter walk from the terminal on-site to the main entrance than from some of the on-site car park locations.
Another option would be to park and leave your car at Lara V/Line train station, and pay the fee for the shuttle bus which will drop you off at the bus terminal on-site.
Further information and costs for the V/Line train fares and shuttle bus service will be available soon.
A free special Airshow mini train shuttle is available to transport visitors inside the main entrance around certain areas at the event and a golf buggy is available for emergency transport.
