The organising committee has made every effort to make the Pumpkin Festival as friendly as possible for visitors with disabilities.
However, visitors need to appreciate that Collector is a small rural village without footpaths and facilities found in larger urban areas.
The Pumpkin Festival has grown to cover a large area and some of the attractions are located in areas that may not be suitable for wheelchairs or people with mobility problems.
If you are experiencing problems, please ask one of our volunteers for assistance or call our Festival Information line on; 0401 811 233.
A “Disabled Access Car Park” is provided for cars that display a valid Australian Disability Parking Permit.
It will be located in Lorn Street and adjacent to the Lorn Street gate entry.
Visitors that wish to use this facility should advise the staff on the Lorn Street road block and they will be directed to it.

Several bathrooms for people with disabilities are also provided. These will be distributed in various places throughout the festival area in locations that are easily accessed from the street surfaces.
The Collector Memorial Hall (the place to go for pumpkin scones and a cup of tea) has assisted wheelchair access while the History Display in Saint Bartholomew’s Catholic Church is fully accessible.
