Disability Action Statement

Fringe Mount Gambier is committed to the development of a Disability Action Plan which will be introduced in stages as part of our long term vision and goals.

Since 2018 the team at Fringe Mount Gambier have been working alongside community members with disabilities to constantly improve site accessibility.  When we plan large community events we develop an access map to clearly label best points of entry and facilities to help us ensure that people of all abilities, including people with disabilities, can gain equitable, independent and functional access to as many areas as possible. For events out in the community we obtain their accessibility level during the registration process and promote them on the printed program.

The festival is also Companion Card friendly. A Companion Card simply ensures that people who are unable to attend without a companion to provide attendant care support are not charged two admission fees. You can only use your Companion Card if you are unable to do your thing without attendant care support. Only the person whose photograph and name appear on the card can use the Companion Card. More information about companion cards can be found here.

If you have an inquiry about the site’s current facilities and services, please email our Community Development Manager, Tammy on tammy@fringemountgambier.com.au
