If you're having issues accessing your Wilderness account, please follow the below steps:
- First of all, please try to reset your password by visiting https://www.wildernessfestival.com/accounts/password-reset/
- If the password reset page returns an error message which says "No user found with that email address", then you most likely do not have an account with us. Either because you haven't yet set one up (see the note above about new accounts for 2023) or because when you set it up you accidentally input the wrong email address.

Babies and little ones can sit on parents' laps at all restaurants except for The Chef's Table. If they're in a pram please ask on arrival to be seated at the end of a table. Please note, we don't have a dedicated children's menu, so if you’re planning to have them eat with you they’ll need to be booked as an additional seat.
