The Agfest Committee has spent a great deal of time working with all relevant authorities to determine the most effective, efficient and safe entry and exit routes to the site. However, with the large volumes of traffic flowing to Quercus Park during the event, we respectfully request your patience and commitment to road safety best practice to ensure the entire Agfest family travels to and from the site without incident. Quercus Park - home of Agfest is located at 415 Oaks Road, Carrick, Tasmania 7291

If you would like to travel in a different direction upon leaving Agfest, you need to come to Agfest via Carrick. The road to Agfest via Carrick is sign posted.
For example, if you are travelling from Penguin on Thursday and have accommodation in Launceston that night, you will need to travel to Agfest via Carrick. On Friday, you will need to travel from Launceston to Agfest again via Carrick. When leaving Agfest you will travel to Penguin via Carrick.
Please note, if you find yourself travelling in the wrong direction after leaving the Agfest site, there are U-Turn facilities at Hagley and the Hobart off ramps that can be used. It is advised that you do not attempt a U-Turn on the Bass Highway.
To facilitate efficient traffic flow the Agfest traffic management system is designed so that vehicles travelling via different directions are parked in separate areas.
It is important to note that the Agfest traffic management system is designed so that patrons leave in the same direction as they came. For example, if you came from the North West, the the roads out of Agfest will lead back to the North West.
If you enter the site via Carrick and the Meander Valley Highway, you will have a choice to travel to the South, North or North West at Carrick on your return home. Entering Agfest via Carrick and the Meander Valley Highway enables you to depart Agfest in a different direction to the direction you came in.
Once off the Agfest site, lane changes are strictly prohibited on Oaks Road. This mean all patrons travelling home will not be able to change the direction of which they are travelling once on Oaks Road. It is highly recommended that patrons plan their trip to ensure they are on the right road to get home.
Tasmanian Police will be present on Oaks Road during the event.
Agfest and Rural Youth sincerely thank you for your compliance with all road safety rules, regulations and Agfest traffic flow changes to ensure the safety, health and well being of all.
