Parking at Fieldays is free and is open from 6 am. To avoid queues we recommend arriving nice and early.  We do our best to get you in and out of car parks as fast as possible but due to the high volumes of traffic, there may be some delays.

Mobility Parking
Mobility Parking is for CCS Mobility Parking Permit holders only. 

Please note, this year we have made changes to the mobility parking area and the pick-up point at the event for pre-booked scooters. These updates aim to make the process of parking, and accessing your hired scooter faster and easier.

  • A limited number of Mobility Scooters are available for hire while at Fieldays from Mobility Centre, Hamilton - these need to be pre-booked before arriving at the event. Bookings can be made by calling Mobility Centre on 07 903 7050.
  • Mobility parking (for CCS permit holders) has been moved to near the Gate 2 entrance at 125 Mystery Creek Road for your convenience.
  • Hire scooters will be available to collect (with prior booking) inside Gate 2 at the bottom of the hill behind the Good George Bar & Eatery. Catch a free wheelchair-accessible shuttle between the top of Gate 2 hill and the scooter collection point.
  • If you are hiring a mobility scooter and do not hold a CCS permit, you will need to park in our standard public carparks and make your way from the entry to the scooter pickup point. This is approximately 600m walk, and it’s important to note that our event takes place on a large agricultural site, which means not all areas are level or have paved surfaces like you'd find in a typical urban setting. We want you to have the best possible experience while you're here, so please keep this in mind as you plan your visit.
