We hope you find this information helpful in understanding the pricing structure.
Events help to keep Ivory's Rock financially solvent. Despite a challenging four years Ivory’s Rock has been able to cover costs since 2018, due to the support of donors, volunteers, savings and an increase in commercial events.
Event costs have risen by 40% since 2018. Due to recent floods in SE Qld and NNSW there has been a high demand for trades people and contractors in the rebuild efforts. Contractors who are available are in short supply and hence have raised their rates - often supplies and labour are 40% higher that 2018.
Costs for this event has escalated also due to the added expense of Covid mitigation.
Due to our ageing population, it is difficult to find volunteers to help, resulting in more staff having to be hired this year at very high rates.
The Amphitheatre and many parts of the property are only ever used for our large events and need significant work to be in "event readiness”.
The grounds are very sodden with the recent deluges and need extensive work to enable tents to be erected, and large marquees to be placed.
In 2022 we need to raise sufficient income to enable us to continue in a sustainable way, without incurring debt.
For these reasons we hope that you will appreciate that our fees and charges have had to priced accordingly. Thank you.

*** We are sorry to hear that some people haven't received their visas. If you are still waiting, you need to deal directly with the Australian Department of Home Affairs yourself. Ivory’s Rock Foundation can only provide the initial Visa Support Letters - we cannot contact the Australian Department of Home Affairs for you.
According to the information on the Department of Home Affairs website, the processing time for visas depends on many factors, for example, submitting incomplete applications and how promptly the applicants respond.
This year, the Department is apparently short-staffed due to staff members are getting sick with Covid. This may explain the visa approval delays.
It does not lessen your chances of getting your visa approved, if you call the Department and ask about your application. It is also possible to file a complaint regarding processing delays. These delays are happening to people who are in many different countries. (Update 12 August)
