Parking

Tip: Please do not park anywhere on the course.

Check with individual car park operators for Sunday operating hours.

The Event recommends parking in the CBD or South Wharf as many Docklands car parks will be impacted by the event road closures, limiting traffic flow throughout the Docklands Precinct.

Please study the Road closure table and map carefully to see which roads will be closed and how best to access your chosen parking destination. Plan your route carefully.

Note that normal on street parking restrictions apply throughout the event.

From the North

Vehicles will be able to access the CBD unimpeded from the North down William St, Queen St, Elizabeth St, Russell and Exhibition Streets St.

From the South

Vehicles will be able to access the CBD unimpeded from the South via King’s Way or Punt  Road, Queensbridge Street or Batman Avenue.

From the East

The Domain Tunnel remains open for this years event.  Vehicles will be able to access the CBD from the East via the Monash/Domain Tunnel/West Gate Freeway using either Punt Rd, Batman Ave, Kings Way, Montague St (southbound ONLY).  Please note that the Power St Off Ramp is CLOSED as is Montague St Off Ramp northbound.

From the West

The West Gate Freeway will be open all day in the eastbound direction. Vehicles will be able to access the CBD via the West Gate Freeway using Cook St/Todd Rd exit or Power St exit. Vehicles won’t be able to access the CBD (or Bayside) via Montague St or Kings Way off ramp.
*We recommend Cook St/Todd Rd exit over Power St exit.
