EVENT INFORMATION

HOW DOES THE CHRISTMASLAND PARTY PACKAGE WORK?

Our party package cost is $59 per person (adult or child). There are no booking fees. You can book a minimum of 8 guests to a maximum of 12 guests. Party guests get full access to Christmasland for up to 2 hours from the start time stated on their ticket and a private booth in our party room next to the event. Guests receive a drink and shared candy platter from Mrs. Claus Milk Bar to enjoy in their booth.

WHAT'S IN THE PRIVATE PARTY ROOM?

The private party room has two separate booths. One has velvet lounge seating, the other has a long table and chairs. If you have a preference please let us know - we will do our best to accommodate it but it may not be possible if already booked. You'll find extra activations to play and pose in. There is also a bathroom in the space, for use by party guests. Please note that there may be up to two private groups in the party space at one time.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO BOOK MY PARTY?

You'll need to purchase your group's tickets here on Eventbrite. There is a waiver at the checkout that each attendee needs to read and accept before you make payment. Once this is completed you'll receive an email from Eventbrite with your tickets.

WHAT IF I HAVE MORE THAN 12 GUESTS?

Please contact us before booking as we may be able to accommodate up to 24 guests depending on availability.

WILL THERE BE OTHER PEOPLE AT CHRISTMASLAND?

Yes! Private parties are held during public open hours so there will be other guests at the event. Please be respectful of other guests at all times.

DO I NEED TO LIST EVERYONE IN MY GROUP WHEN I BOOK?

Yes! We cannot allow entry to any guest who does not have a ticket in their name (including children) so please ensure that you name everyone in your booking. If you don't know exactly who's coming yet, or if you have a change of plans, you can change the name on any of your tickets through Eventbrite. This must be done before you arrive to avoid delays at check-in. Please note that, if guests cancel, their ticket is not refundable however it may be transferred to another guest by changing the name in Eventbrite.

CAN I BOOK A CHILDREN'S PARTY?

Sugar Republic is aimed at grown-ups (because why should kids have all the fun?) but there’s no age restriction as long as you love Christmas! You are welcome to book a group of children for a party but please note that we require one (paying) adult guest per four children under 12 to ensure adequate supervision, eg if you are inviting 8 children you will need to book for 10 people including 2 adults. Children 12-16 require one adult (paying) guest per group of 12. Over-16s do not require an adult guest to be at the party.

Please note - this is not a play centre or theme park. All of our guests are expected to show consideration to others, to play gently and to respect the art installations.

CAN I BUY TICKETS IN PERSON?

No, party bookings must be booked in advance.

CAN I CANCEL OR CHANGE MY BOOKING?

Party bookings are non-refundable if cancelled. If you need to change your date we will offer you a transfer to any available alternative dates/times. We cannot guarantee that there will be an available time to suit you and in this case your booking will not be refunded. You can change the names of your guests at any time before you arrive.

HOW DO I FIND CHRISTMASLAND?

WHAT HAPPENS ON ARRIVAL?

Please identify yourself as a party organiser to our check-in team - you will be asked to wait until all of your group arrives and you can then enter and get the party started.

WILL SANTA BE THERE IN PERSON?

Of course! Christmas is nothing without Santa, so he'll be at Christmasland every day. You might find him hanging in the gingerbread cottage, on his throne in Candy Cane Lane or even in the ball pit, who knows? Wherever he is, Santa will be happy to talk about your Christmas list and jump in a group photo with you.

WHAT SHOULD WE BRING?
