No. Strawbfest is hosted on Chevallum School Grounds and the school has a strict no pets policy on school premises (with the exception of service animals).

Where can I park?

Parking will be available at the event for a gold coin donation to Palmwoods Rural Fire Brigade. Signs will be up to direct traffic to the fields adjacent to the school. Pedestrian access to the main entrance of Strawbfest is via the school parking lot. Just head to the school grounds on Chevallum Road, Chevallum.

note: please do not attempt to park within the actual school grounds as this is a drop and go zone only. 

Is there access for people with mobility issues?

For visitors with limited mobility. There is a drop and go zone directly at the front of the school. Volunteers will direct you from there. Parking is opposite the school in the adjacent fields (see parking FAQ). Our school grounds are wheelchair-friendly.
