Accessibility requirements

If you have a guest with mobility access requirements (and they are not driving), we suggest they disembark at the Wilson Hall roundabout, which can be accessed via the Grattan Street (Gate 10) entrance, so they have immediate access to the ramp leading to the MacFarland Court/Wilson Hall/Union House level.

The Royal Exhibition Building at Carlton Gardens is a 15-20 minute walk from the Parkville campus.

The venue is well serviced by public transport, with numerous options available including trams, trains and buses (refer to the map for detailed information). If you’re driving, you may wish to park opposite the venue at Melbourne Museum.
