  • I noticed Mooloolabbq starts at 10am and fireworks are at 8pm. Can you tell me, once the fee is paid, are we able to come and go from the Mooloolabbq or do you have to stay inside the area?


    • Hi Pamela,

      Not sure if passouts are offered, but tickets purchased online are sent via SMS to your phone. The terms and conditions on their ticket selling site then states the following:”In the event that your phone is lost/stolen, or you accidentally delete the SMS, your name and order details will also be listed on the door list. Simply present valid photo ID in order to gain entry.

      Seems you should be able to present photo ID if you need to leave and come back again to prove you haven’t passed off your ticket. Check with door staff upon your arrival.

      Hope this helps,
