Loading Dock Access

Loading Dock Access

Fine Food Australia is running a scheduled move in and move out for any vehicles requiring access to the loading dock. This includes couriers, stand builders and any parties involved in the set up and pack down of your stand. If you require access to the loading dock for any reason, you must book a time by contacting GEL Events. Failure to book a move in or move out time will result in delays accessing the loading dock. If you turn up outside the allocated time you will be asked to wait or potentially turned away.

Loading Dock Access

The loading dock entrance is located on the Darling Drive side of the venue. The exhibition centre loading dock facilities are on two levels. Access is via a slip-lane from the south bound lane on Darling Drive. A vehicle inspection check point with a boom gate is located at the bottom of the ramp on Darling Drive where you will be asked which show and hall your stand is located in.

The dock operates on a one-way circulation system to maximise efficiency and an unload limit of 20 minutes per vehicle applies. Each exhibition hall can be accessed via a 5.6 metres wide x 4.3 metres high loading dock door. The underground car park can be accessed via lift 6 or 12 to deliver your items to your stand.

Please note the following:

  • Access to the loading dock during build up must be booked with GEL Events the official freight and logistics supplier
  • Parking is not permitted on the loading dock area
  • All vehicles under 1.8m high will be directed to the car park to unload and will not be provided access to the loading dock
  • Hand held items should be delivered from the car park located directly underneath the exhibition halls
  • No access will be permitted via the loading dock doors during the operational hours of the event

Show Open

During the Show, visitors and exhibitors will have access to the exhibition via the front doors of the exhibition halls. Exhibitors can enter up to two hours prior to show opening. Public car parking is located under the halls and can be accessed via Darling Drive.


All forklifts and material handling will be operated by the official Logistics & Freight Forwarder GEL Events.

Exhibitors or their stand builders requiring a forklift during move in or move out, must pre-book these services in advance. A sliding scale price is available depending on the number of lifts.
