Summer transport disruptions
There are major transport disruptions in Melbourne between December 2017 and January 2018, including Hoddle Street between Sunday 7 January 2018 to 11:30pm Sunday 14 January 2018. Motorists and public transport users are being urged to plan ahead, allow more time to complete their journey and consider alternatives. For more information click here.
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.
For major concerts and events public transport is recommended as the most effective mode of transportation. A short walk from Flinders Street train station via the William Barak footbridge allows patrons and guests access to the City Entrance of Melbourne & Olympic Parks.
The new Tanderrum Bridge is now the main entrance to Melbourne Park from the CBD, connecting directly into the precinct via Birrarung Marr.
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.
Richmond Station is in walking distance of the Melbourne & Olympic Parks precinct. The addition of the Champions Walk and William Barak Bridge from Birrarung Marr makes a short pleasurable walk from the City, Federation Square and along the Yarra.
