HOW CAN I GET TO THE EVENT?
Tickets to The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo at Stadium Australia include travel on Sydney Trains and Sydney Metro services. Take advantage of the express trains running from Central, stopping at Redfern, Strathfield then Olympic Park.
For those planning to drive it is essential you pre-book parking in Sydney Olympic Park, available online until 11.59pm the night before.
If you’re driving from the Sydney CBD consider making use of the new M4 Tunnels for a shorter trip to Olympic Park. The widened M4 Motorway between Parramatta and Olympic Park and the new M4 Tunnels between Haberfield and Olympic Park allows motorists to bypass more than 50 sets of traffic lights on Parramatta Road (a distance-based toll applies).
Event goers should allow plenty of time to get to Sydney Olympic Park, find a parking space and get to their seat for the show.
WHAT’S THE FORECAST?
Clear and fine evenings are forecast for the three night shows.
Event-goers attending the Saturday matinee are encouraged to bring hats and sunscreen with a top of 30 degrees forecast for Sydney Olympic Park.
