Our venue for HI LIFE Australia is the McLaren’s Landing resort, situated on South Stradbroke Island. This Balinese-inspired resort has hosted thousands of revelers over the years, due to its fantastic positioning on a stretch of glimmering sand, with the sound of the azure waters lapping on its doorstep. Here is where Hard Island will make its home for the first time ever in Australia.
The only way to get to our amazing island venue will be with official boat transfers from Mariners Cove Marina. Boat transfers will depart and return in the Mariners Cove Marina itself (entrance right next to the Palazzo Versace hotel). The TransLink citybus will take you directly to Mariners Cove Marina (see Translink journey planner here). One way ride to the venue taking approximately 50min. The boats taking you there are fully equipped with bars and toilet facilities. First return boat transfer will depart at 6pm. It will not be possible to go back to mainland sooner. To make things as simple as possible, you’re able to book your boat transfers as an extra when purchasing your festival ticket (few weeks before the event the boat transfers will be available for booking separately).
