The following information applies to the Air Tattoo at RAAF Base Amberley.
Disabled Access/Amenities
Visitors to the event should be aware that the Air Tattoo is not held on a purpose built site and may pose challenges for those with mobility issues. Every effort has been made to make the site as accessible as possible, however, visitors should note that there are uneven surfaces throughout the base.
There will be limited seating provided for general admission attendees to view the Air Tattoo. Visitors are permitted to bring chairs with them.
Automatic Teller Machines will be available at the Air Tattoo.
The public area of the Ipswich Amberley Air Tattoo at RAAF Base Amberley is an alcohol and smoke free environment.
Food Outlets
There will be a variety of food stalls available at the Air Tattoo. Visitors can also bring their own food and non-alcoholic drinks. A filtered water refill point will also be available.
What if it rains
The Air Tattoo is a rain or shine event. If weather poses a risk to the safety of the public or performers, some flying displays and flying demonstrations may be modified, delayed or suspended.
Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk a lot.
Sunscreen and sunglasses
The weather in October in Ipswich should be mild but even so remember to bring some water and pack some sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat.
Bring earplugs/muffs, especially for kids. Part of the Air Tattoo thrill is the sound of flying displays, but ear protection is highly encouraged, especially for young children.
Public Transport/Car Parking
Please note, there will be no public transport or pedestrian access to or from RAAF Base Amberley. Ticket holders are encouraged to car pool to the Air Tattoo and allow sufficient time for travel and parking as traffic delays are expected.
