Help! I've purchased my ticket put haven't received a confirmation email!

First, check your Junk email folder!

You should receive two emails after purchasing your tickets - one titled "Your confirmation email..." and a transaction record from Paypal. These should arrive within 24 hours of your transaction.

If your confirmation email has not arrived, simply email us, specify which ticket(s) you purchased and we will email them to you.

Where is the Expo located, and where do I park?

Big Boys Toys Canberra is held in Exhibition Park in Canberra (Flemington Road, Lyneham ACT 2602) - a map and parking guide is available on the Visitor Information page.

I have a Companion Card - do I pay for entry?

No - BBT attendees with a severe disability who need to be accompanied by an able bodied adult only require a single ticket for entry. Purchase the single adult ticket online or at the door and the companion can enter free upon display of their Companion Card.

Is there disabled access at the venue?

We believe strongly in supporting the needs of people with disabilities. The main venue is on a single level at street height. There are no steps to enter the venue.

Please ask one of our keen Support Crew (see staff or volunteers in Big Boys Toys Expo shirts) if there are any other ways that we can help.
