We have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions for event attendees below.
Still have questions? Contact us via [email protected] or (07) 3810 6666.


Why is Planes, Trains and Autos low cost, not free ticketed this year?

Extensive event research shows that when events are free ticketed, attendees will often book more free tickets than they require leading other members of the community to miss out. With low-cost ticketing people are more inclined to commit to attending and pre-purchase.

In 2022, your ticket will make a real difference in the Ipswich community. Ticketing revenue (excluding applicable ticketing fees and charges) will support Legacy Club of Ipswich and Queensland Museum Foundation.


How much are tickets?

Adult $6
Concession $5
Child 3-15 years $5
