Safety at Woodfordia

You are here:

For your safety and the safety of all our patrons, volunteers, organisers and performers…

Woodfordia is a 500-acre parkland dedicated to the arts and humanities; however, it is still a bushland setting and we request for your own health and safety that you follow these guidelines:

  • Footwear must be worn at all times. Be aware of the possibility of snakes, stinging plants and insects and wear enclosed shoes. And watch your footing—the ground is uneven with potholes and gullies.
  • We do not allow or provide for camp fires. This is a high fire risk area.
  • Have respect for wildlife—please stay out of forestry area and especially our neighbours’ properties.
  • All tap water on site is of drinkable quality. Dam and creek water, however, are unsuitable for drinking.
  • Unfortunately, there is no swimming in dams. Water quality is not suitable for swimming
  • Plastic, sharp objects, cans and cigarette butts all endanger native wildlife, so please dispose of them thoughtfully.
  • Protect wild flora and please do not damage or take any flora from the site.
  • Children must be accompanied and supervised at all times.
  • Hollow logs and gullies may be the habitat of snakes, insects, birds and other animals. Please leave these be.
  • There is no glass permitted.
  • Recycle, compost and re-use.
