Guests with reduced mobility can get to the arena via Olympic Boulevard or the Rod Laver Arena and Hisense/Melbourne Arena tram stops. You can see where these are located on the map of the precinct.
There are ramps throughout the site and all turnstiles have an accessible entry option for those who may need it.
There is also lift access at the Rod Laver Arena forecourt if you’re coming from Olympic Boulevard, as well as one next to the main entry for Margaret Court Arena (just off Garden Square).
Accessible parking is booked through Ticketek on their Accessible Seating Hotline: (03) 9286 1208. We’d recommend booking parking in advance to avoid disappointment.
DROP OFF AREAS
Those with reduced mobility can be dropped off in the Northern carpark via entrance A (Batman Avenue). Just to let you know, all visitors have 20 minutes to drop off guests to the arena, after which time you may be charged.
There are two accessible internal lifts: lift 9 goes to all floors and lift 2 takes you to the arena floor.
When booking accessible tickets, make sure to go through Melbourne Park Office directly. To get in touch you can:
- Reach them by phone on 03 9286 1208;
- Fax them (although, who of us faxes nowadays?) on 03 9286 1653;
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
If there’s still availability, you can also get your tickets on the day from the accessible ticket window at Margaret Court Arena Forecourt Box Office.
There are plenty of wheelchair accessible seating bays. These bays have wheelchair space and a spare seat next to them for a friend or relative.
There are several accessible toilets (larger, wider cubicle with a door opening outwards) available throughout the Arena. You can see where these are located on the arena map.
