DAY PASSES, INDIVIDUAL PARTY TICKETS & WORKSHOP TASTERS AVAILABLE FROM MAY

TRANSPORT:
Airport Shuttle: If you’re coming from Townsville Airport, there is a shuttle for $10pp that will take you to the ferry. This will need to be booked in advance via Townsville Airport Shuttle 0478 160 036. They will need your date and time of arrival plus the airline number.

Ferry: You will need to purchase your ferry ticket to Magnetic island from Townsville either online or direct from Sealink Breakwater Terminal. Watch this space for a special deal for our festival weekend.

Bus/ Taxi: Amaroo may be able to provide their courtesy transport from the ferry to the resort. But in case of too many people to pick up at once, Translink buses come and meet the ferries on the island and Amaroo is a short bus ride away. Bus fares are super cheap. There is also a taxi van service.

PLASTIC FREE EVENT:
Afrekete 2024 is partnering with Plastic Free Townsville and Xero Waste Magnetic Island. We aim to raise more awareness around looking after our environment and making as little impact as possible. Please be mindful of this as we are trying to reduce single-use plastic items (including take away coffee cups) at our event. We encourage you to BYO your water bottle as we will have filtered water stations around the resort. If you forget to bring one, you may be able to purchase a re-usable bottle from our reception desk.


***Ticket Cancelation Policy***
Strictly NO REFUNDS.
Tickets can be transferred to another participant at buyer’s own inconvenience.
Contact us if you need help to transfer your ticket into someone else’s name.
Only under extreme circumstances will we consider issuing a credit towards another of our events.
