Welcome Guest

Parade Accessibility Viewing


Enjoy watching the Parade from a managed accessible viewing area offering an unobstructed view of the Parade with the following features:

  • Flat accessible site
  • Accessible amenities are located on site
  • Dedicated event volunteers and security on site

This area does not have any shelter or permanent seating. We encourage our accessible viewing audience to bring a lightweight, portable fold-up chair if required, and appropriate gear for the day’s weather – if it’s a hot sunny day, bring a hat and sunscreen; or if it’s raining, bring a poncho.

Please note that the areas surrounding the viewing area experience very high levels of pedestrian traffic.

Registrations for the accessible viewing area have reached capacity. Should we receive any cancellations, this will be redistributed to a wait-list. Please sign-up to the wait-list by contacting us on accessibility@mardigrasarts.org.au.


Important information is listed below about a number of changes that have occurred to the Accessible Viewing Area in 2019.  SGLMG have relocated all previous accessible viewing areas into one premium location. The changes have taken place so that we may enhance your overall experience at the Parade.



The accessible viewing area is located on Flinders Street between Patterson Lane and Linden Lane.
