Leave the car - there are plenty of other options!

At the last Granny Smith Festival around 90,000 people came to Eastwood to attend the festival. Parking around the area is limited and will be filled early in the day.


Eastwood Station is just across the road from the Festival. Trains run on the Northern Line, with northbound trains going to Epping and Hornsby, and southbound trains going to Denistone and the City.

Hop on the bus and get to the festival. You can find more information including timetables and routes at Transport NSW Trip Planner.

As there are ‘Festival Road Closures”, please plan your trip from start to finish with bus, train and ferry timetable information at Transport NSW Trip Planner.

There are lots of cycle routes to get you to the festival at our Temporary Event Bicycle Parking area on Hillview Road to secure your bike once you get there.

Additional bike parking will be added on Hillview Road near the roundabout that intersects with Lakeside Road.

We do ask bike riders to take care of pedestrians and to dismount their bikes once entering into the festival area.
