Sugar Republic is on the 6th floor of Myer Melbourne, easily accessible by public transport and with public car parks nearby.
WHAT IS THE AGE LIMIT?
Sugar Republic is aimed at grown-ups but there’s no age restriction as long as you love sugar! Children must be under supervision at all times. Children aged 2 and under do not need a ticket.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR MY TIMED TICKET?
We ask that you arrive within 15 minutes of your ticket time (e.g if your ticket is for 2pm you can arrive from 1.45 to 2.15). Your ticket is only valid for the date and time purchased. If you miss your time slot your ticket is no longer valid and cannot be refunded. Groups must arrive together.
HOW LONG WILL MY VISIT TAKE?
You can take your sweet time going through the exhibit, up to one hour. Some activities including the ball pit and gum ball machine have time limits.
WHAT ARE THE NIGHT SESSIONS?
Night sessions from 6.30pm are only for adults 18+ as we know that some guests prefer to experience Sugar Republic without children. Please note that last entry for children is 6pm, so there may still be children inside until 7pm. For a completely child-free experience we suggest booking a slot from 7pm onwards. Important: guests under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed entry into Sugar Republic.
WHAT HAPPENS AT CHECK IN?
Our team will check your ticket at the door. You may be asked for ID. Bags and coats will need to be checked into our cloakroom.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Bring your ticket, your ID, your phone/camera and your sweet self.
Some of the experiences require that you remove your shoes so please wear socks or tights, as you may not be allowed to participate with bare feet.
IS THERE A COAT CHECK?
CAN I BRING A PRAM?
Prams are not permitted inside the exhibit.
DO YOU HAVE TOILETS?
Please note that there are no toilet facilities inside the exhibition, however there are bathrooms in Myer should you wish to use them before you start your visit.

Sugar Republic is primarily a pop up art event and a space for taking photos (it is NOT a lolly factory or food fair!) however we do have tastings on offer for our sugar-loving visitors, which may include ice cream, lollies and fairy floss. The treats on offer vary and not all of these are on offer every day but you will always find at least 3-4 tastings.
I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY. WILL I BE ABLE TO EAT THE TASTINGS?
There is a selection of tastings at Sugar Republic. Please note that our kitchen handles wheat, eggs, milk, soy and tree nuts, and all of our food samples and treats may come into contact with these. If you have any food allergies or requirements please ask our staff for assistance.
CAN I BRING MY OWN FOOD AND DRINK?
Food and drink are not allowed in.
IS EACH EVENT THE SAME?
Every Sugar Republic is different! At Sugar Republic Melbourne you’ll find brand new rooms and spaces created for 2019.

Yes indeed! We love hosting birthday parties, hen parties, team building events and product launches. Please email [email protected] to discuss your special event or to find out about our corporate and party packages.
