There are ATM's available at the markets, however these are known to attract long queues at every event.  Many stalls now accept debit / credit cards, but we strongly suggest you bring cash with you to avoid any disappointment.

Parents Room:

We have set up a parents room with lounges and a microwave to facilitate your parenting needs, located near to the Rathdowne Street end of the Royal Exhibition Building.  (On the left as you enter the building from Rathdowne Street, or to the right as you face outwards towards Rathdowne Street).  


There are two main toilet facilities at the REB, one to the left as you enter from Nicholson Street, and another to the right as you enter from Rathdowne Street.

First Aid: 

On site first aid is available near to the Nicholson Street entrance of REB.  If you or someone in your group requires emergency medical attention, please find your way to the first aid office, or please alert one of the Finders Keepers crew who will be able to assist.

Disabled access:

All areas of the building used by the markets, including toilet facilities, are accessible for wheelchairs.
