Prices listed below are GST inclusive. 

Transport to Mount Gambier or locally when in Mount Gambier (unless discussed directly with the Generations in Jazz Office)

Participant Accommodation

The Generations in Jazz Board appoints an Official Accommodation Committee to secure suitable accommodation at affordable prices for registered participants.

This assists groups to reduce costs and make participation as accessible as possible.

Accommodation allocations are made based on option selection, participant numbers per school and venue capacity.

Ideally we would love to be able to offer everyone their first option so we would ask that you do indicate your first preference. Realistically though it might not always be possible to provide you with your preference. If this is the situation one of our accommodation team will be in touch to discuss your alternate option based on your registered numbers.


Generations in Jazz has partnered with a limited number of motels, private homes and caravan parks in Mount Gambier and surrounding townships to offer this tier to participants who select it.Option 1 might require schools to travel to accommodation located in neighbouring towns.

Consideration will be given to schools having to travel further distances for their performance times

Private Homes

To cater for the influx of visitors and participants, the community of Mount Gambier has thrown open their doors to support Generations in Jazz. For the duration of the event period home owners vacate their properties renting them directly to Generations in Jazz for accommodation of school groups which is fast becoming a popular selection for participants.

Homes undergo the required checks prior to allocations being made, with home owners working with GIJ to ensure everything is in place before your arrival.

Offering true community and country hospitality and only a short drive from the event site why not consider the private home option for your next visit to Generations in Jazz. To discuss this option further contact the Generations in Jazz office today.

School, Halll & Community Venue Accommodation

Allocated accommodation in Option 3 is to sporting clubs, schools and local halls throughout the community. The Generations in Jazz Accommodation team have inspected these venues to conform to overnight accommodation provider regulations

This experience offers a more relaxing environment for students, teachers and supervisors outside of the commercial accommodation provider. Many clubs provide a very personal contribution from committee members and “bend over backwards “ to ensure you have a great time .


Option 3 requires staff and students to bring their own bedding (sleeping bags, blankets, pillow and towels) . Airbeds are provided by Generations in Jazz and will be already setup by your host venue prior to your arrival.

If you wish to discuss any specific requirements your school may have before choosing this option please don’t hesitate to contact us.
