For returns into Melbourne, the last train is just before midnight, which will probably be a little early for most of our patrons! After this time, Nightrider buses depart from 2:09 am and then every 30 minutes til 4.09am from Mason St/Newport Rd just opposite the Station as can be seen above(also see Metlink map here) so returning into the city is easy!

There is ample free parking adjacent to the venue for those arriving by automobile.

We can assist at the front desk with organising joint taxis, please ask about this service when you arrive at the venue.
