Ticketing information

Valid pre-purchased event tickets include travel to and from Sydney Showground on train services (bounded by Bomaderry, Goulburn, Bathurst, Scone and Dungog stations).

Remember to keep your event ticket safe for your return journey or you’ll need to use your Opal card, as you must have a valid ticket when travelling on public transport. Your event ticket is valid on public transport until 04:00 the following day.

Note: an additional station access fee applies for travel to or from Domestic and International Airport stations. Your event ticket does not include the access fee, so if you're travelling from these stations you'll need to pay the train station access fee.

To help you get to and from the event, additional express services will be running throughout the day every 15 minutes between Central (leaving from Platform 18) and Olympic Park from 11am until 12.30am.

Alternatively, catch a train to Lidcombe for a direct service to Olympic Park from Platform Zero running every 10 minutes until 1am.
