Transport Information

Transport during the Festival

The majority of events at the AFCM are held at the Townsville Civic Theatre. Generally Townsville does not have a dedicated public transport service to the theatre, therefore during AFCM a special bus is provided by Sunbus, with tickets purchased on board. Gold Pass holders have a separate bus service available to them. When considering your accommodation please consider the mode of transport that best suits your requirements during AFCM.
