Getting there


We are only 5 minutes from Southern Cross Station.

Plan your journey on the Public Transport Victoria (PTV) website



To use trams, trains and buses around Melbourne you’ll need to buy a Myki card.

Myki cards are very easy to use, just top up credit or buy a pass at a shop or station, then touch-on once you’ve boarded the tram or bus – or touch-on and off to get through the barriers at train stations.

Visit the Public Transport Victoria (PTV) Myki site


Parking nearby is expensive unless you arrive before 10am and leave after 4pm, so it might be best to catch a taxi, tram or train.
