Public transport is the quickest and easiest way to get to and from an event at Melbourne & Olympic Parks. Trains, trams and buses operate frequently, dropping you right at the door of Australia’s premier sports and entertainment precinct. On site public car parking is very limited. To avoid disappointment, we recommend the use of public transport.
For more information about getting there including timetables, fares and maps contact 1800 800 007 or visit Public Transport Victoria. For a full range of online and mobile tools available to help you access public transport information, go to Public Transport Victoria.
Please Note: During this summer, the quietest time on the transport network, essential works will be happening on CityLink, the West Gate Bridge and suburban and regional rail lines. These will impact how people move around Melbourne, with some road closures, alternative routes and bus replacement services on some train lines and an amended Metro timetable across most lines.
