Wow, what a year it has been, after a short break we are back and the team is ready to go to bring you what will be another world class event!

Before we jump into everything we would also like to thank each and every one of you who supported us through the last few years and those who have provided much appreciated feedback after the 2022 event. If you wish to have your say about ESO22 then you can still do that here. The team has not stopped and a lot has all been added and considered for future events, which you’ll also see in the following new changes for the 2023 event.


After close consultation with Buloke Shire Council and Local authorities we have the go ahead to plan for our next Event in March 2023. This will be subject to the most up to date conditions at time, but we will be working tirelessly to ensure the wellbeing of all. WE ARE ON!


We are continuing to tighten up the way tickets become accessible so we can maintain familiar positivity within our magical community event. Every single ticket purchased must have the name of the person entering and multiple tickets cannot be claimed under the one name at the gate.

To ensure we can keep the Esoteric Family coming back to enjoy our community over and over, past buyers will again get first priority on tickets.

If you purchased online tickets for ESO 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 or 2022 then you will automatically receive a unique code that allows you to purchase up to 2 tickets (one for you and one for a named friend) from 7pm Thursday 26 May. You guys are our tribe and we want you to have the first opportunity, so we are giving you a 2 week head start on tickets.

For those who attended previously but did not purchase directly online or bought via a friend/reseller then you will need to be checked and verified before a code can be issued to you on the appropriate date. If this applies to you then please start that process now, you can do that here >>

For any remaining tickets, like previous years there is a ballot system to ensure that tickets are distributed fairly. The ballot will be a simple form where you add your name onto the waiting list. Successful ballot winners will be sent a unique code to login and purchase up to 2 tickets from Thursday 9 June. For new Esotericans, you can enter the ticket ballot here >>


We are continuing to allow payment plans via Zip. This makes it easier for our Esotericans to purchase tickets without having to fork out the cash upfront.

If you are planning to use ZipPay, some individuals may require pre-approval. It’s highly recommended to set up your ZipPay account at in advance to ensure a smooth purchase during the ticketing launch if you decide to use a payment plan.


Tickets are as always first in, best dressed. Once each ticket tier sells out they are done. There will be no extra tiers once we are all sold out.

The timeline for the launch of tickets are;

Thurs 26 May – Past buyers receive their unique code to buy.

Thurs 9 June – Successful ballots receive their unique code to buy.


First Round – $320 + BF
Second Round – $360 + BF
Final Round – $400 + BF


We will open a ticket name change window later in the year. The finer details and recommendations will be provided closer to the date because we are changing how name changes, resales and ticket transfers work for ESO23.


After consultation with the Buloke Shire Council & relevant authorities, we will continue to have vehicle passes to reduce vehicles impacting the region and encourage carpooling for safer driving. We recommend utilising transport services offered or carpooling with friends. A single vehicle pass is a requirement for each vehicle entering the site at a low cost of $25 + BF.


Our early access passes will be returning for Esoteric 2023 for those who are keen to settle in early. There will be some light entertainment on Thursday in the campgrounds for those interested in beating the Friday rush to get in and set up early. Limited Early Access Passes will cost $60 + BF to cover costs of keeping you safe for the extra day. The early entry will also ease the amount of traffic coming through the gates on the Friday, making entry faster for all.


Similarly like every year, we’ll be offering care packages with all your essential doof extras and access to the express lane upon entry for $60 + BF.

A reminder that our tickets do sell out every year and the opportunity to secure them at the discounted presale tiers will only be available once, so it’s best to lock in early.

In the meantime, stay safe and we are very excited to see you back at the wonderlands of Esoterica!
