Message from Ivory’s Rock

We are very happy to welcome you back to Amaroo after 4 years! Thank you to all our volunteers and sponsors. You have helped Ivory’s Rock weather the economic impacts of Covid and here we are, ready for Amaroo 2022.
The Event Team have worked hard to keep the Event Conference Fee and Accommodation costs as close to 2018 prices as possible, even though associated event costs have risen 40%.  You can read more about costs and the pricing structure below in the 'Amaroo 2022 Pricing' drop down.
The average age of attendees this event is 70 years old. We hope you will understand that the senior discount can no longer be offered if we are to cover costs. We appreciate that some people may find it difficult to pay the full Conference Fee. If you are in that position, please contact the Help Desk for more information.
We hope you will choose to stay on site. Its a wonderful way to support Amaroo and have the time to fully enjoy these special events. Know that you will also be helping to ensure this beautiful place is in good shape for the next Amaroo event.  Thank you.

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.

You will need a Smart Card or a Smart Card number to attend the event. We advise you apply now as it can take 6-8 weeks to receive the card.  

SC Application deadline is July 11th if you want to receive a Smart Card prior to the event. However you can still apply after that date. You will receive an email with your SC number, which you can print and bring to the event even if you don't have the physical card.

Apply Here  - Indicate in the comments box that you will be attending Amaroo.
If you require a Replacement Smart Card your number will remain the same.

  • Including your Smart Card number in your registration is the best way to ensure smooth entry to the event. If you do not have a Smart Card or a Smart Card number for a pending application, you may still register, but please apply for your Smart Card and obtain at least your Smart Card number as soon as possible.
  • If you register with no Smart Card and later receive a Smart Card number, please update your booking online or contact the Help Desk to do so.
If you have lost your Smart Card please send an email to the Help Desk. Your Smart Card number will be sent to you so you can register. If your name has changed since the original application please advise your previous name(s) as well.
 
If you haven’t received your new/replacement Smart Card before you travel, please come to the Smart Card Office at the left of the Welcome area/Hall. You will be given a wristband to attend the conference. Please wear your masks in the office to protect you and the volunteers working there. 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)
