There are currently no formal off-road bike trails to the Warrnambool Campus. The main route to campus is via the main highway, however, we do recommend that you exercise caution.

A limited amount of parking is available on campus. There is one dry weather only car park (around the football oval) that does not require a permit. All other Deakin University car parks are classified as Permit Parking Zones and a valid Deakin University parking permit is required at specified times.
