Getting to Margaret Court Arena
Margaret Court Arena is easily accessed from all directions. For major events public transport is most effective with trams, trains and buses all operating in the area.
Margaret Court Arena is a 10 minute walk from the CBD via Birrarung Marr and the Tanderrum Bridge. Check out our precinct map for further details on our location.
Getting to Margaret Court Arena is easy with Public Transport. The route 70 tram drops guests right at the door, with Richmond Station and Flinders Street Station both within walking distance.
All Melbourne & Olympic Park venues are serviced by the Melbourne Park multi-level car park at Entrance D, Olympic Boulevard.
Limited car parking is sometimes available in the Northern Carpark from Entrance A, Batman Avenue. If you’re going to drive, we always suggest planning your parking ahead of time, and pre-booking online to secure your spot.
We encourage guests to cycle to Margaret Court Arena. Bicycle parking is available outside Rod Laver Arena and Melbourne Arena, along Olympic Boulevard.

Conditions of Entry
All guests have the right to enjoy events in safety and comfort. As such, we ask all guests read and understand our conditions of entry before coming to Margaret Court Arena.
Some events may have other restrictions in place around bags, bottles and posters or signage. Event pages will be updated in the days leading up to the event with anything additional you should be aware of.
Melbourne Park Redevelopment
Melbourne Park currently undergoing a major redevelopment, which will see facilities continue to improve for the millions of guests who visit our precinct every year.
