Auslan Interpreters

This year we are excited to be working with Auslan Stage Left! All performances on the Amphitheatre stage will be Auslan Interpreted on Friday 21, Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 July.

Auslan Stage Left enables and provides access for the Deaf Community to theatre and the arts. Quality theatre-trained Auslan interpreters and deaf consultants work alongside their loyal team to ensure that each event is an immersive, engaging and accessible theatre and arts experience.

Auslan Stage Left are dedicated to the training of interpreters and deaf consultants in the area of theatre interpreting and are proud of their commitment to the Deaf and Interpreting Community, to the arts industry and to the awareness of the beautiful sign language – Auslan.

The Interpreters will be located on a platform stage left, under the projector screen. They will also be projected as a watermark to the projector screens on both sides of the stage.

This should allow viewing from the general access area in front of the stage, but also the viewing platforms. The viewing platform at the Amphitheatre is set up stage right and further back from the stage so the Interpreters will only be able to be seen via the watermarks on the projector screens from this location.

If you wish to gain access to the viewing platforms, please lodge the request using this form.

Disabled Parking

We have parking set aside for eligible patrons close to the main event entrance.

To request access, please lodge the request using this form.

You will need to pre-purchase the appropriate vehicle pass to access the car parks at Ngarindjin / North Byron Parklands. More info regarding vehicle passes is available HERE

Getting Around the Site

Ngarindjin / North Byron Parklands is a mainly flat site however there is a natural Amphitheatre, with grassy fields and a few gravel roads. There are walkways to provide access into the Amphitheatre. But like any outdoor field, it can become muddy after continuous rainfall so prepare accordingly.
