The Australian Dance Festival has a long standing relationship with the hotels at Sydney Olympic Park.  As such, we try to get the best rates possible, as early as possible for ADF attendees.  Please note that hotel accommodation within a walking distance to the Australian Dance Festival always sells out quickly.  We recommend that you reserve your rooms as soon as possible.  

Refunds / Roll Overs from 2021

Please complete this online form to either roll forward your accommodation, or to get a refund. 

Things to Note:

  1. As the 2022 ADF falls during the Easter School holidays (and the Easter show is at Sydney Olympic Park), the rates charged directly by the hotel will be A LOT higher, so please consider wisely before giving up your accommodation.

  2. If you purchased your accommodation via a Group Booking, you should contact your Studio Owner / Dance Teacher.

  3. If you wish to roll over your accommodation, please note that the hotel rates have gone up by between $5 - $20 per night.  We will send you an invoice for this additional amount if you tick "I would like to roll over"

Accommodation bookings for 2022 will open on the 31st August to give people who booked in 2021 the first options of rolling forward.

COVID-19 Refund Policy

The normal refund policies* will apply UNLESS:

1. The government ban on mass gatherings of 500+ is still in place as at 28th Feb 2022

Should this situation arise, we will look at cancelling the dates in September and re-scheduling the event as we will not put people at risk.

What this will mean for you in the case that the ADF is postponed:

  • You can either roll forward your ticket and your accommodation payments to the new scheduled dates of the ADF or

  • If you are unable to attend the new scheduled dates, we will provide you with a refund for your ADF tickets and accommodation LESS a $25 administration fee

  • If you have already purchased your flights, please call your travel agent / airline to discuss how flexible their policies are and whether they will provide you with a credit or refund

  • If you haven’t purchased your flights, we recommend that you purchase a flight with the flexibility to change your dates.

  • Please remember that travel agents and airlines have also been badly affected by COVID-19 and be calm and compassionate with staff who are trying to help you. 

2. You have been directly impacted by COVID-19 and are unable to come due to illness, quarantine or loss of income (please communicate with us ASAP if this is the case). 
In this scenario, we will be assuming that the ADF will run as usual in April.

We will assess each request for a refund on a case by case scenario.

We do not wish for the ADF to be a source of more heartache and pain for families affected by COVID-19 and will use compassion common sense and to guide our decisions. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any assistance or clarification about refunds. Our preferred mode of contact is via email to
