Parking facilities

Will there be parking?

The Regatta Grounds has been designated as parking for this event. It is a simple one and a half km walk from these grounds to the Gardens (or an estimated 20mins). Patrons must walk under the underpass and along the Lower Domain Road footpath. Police have advised that no patrons should cross the highway.

Limited parking is available along the road to the Gardens top entrance. There will be no parking at the bottom entrance as it is a drop off point only for park and ride buses.

Can I catch the bus?

A regular Sunday timetable will operate, meaning Metro services will have ceased by the end of the Carols. Patrons using Metro to travel to the event are advised to make alternate arrangements after the event has concluded. Please note that standard fares will apply.  

Will there be a Park and Ride service?

You can reach the Botanical Gardens from the city by using the free shuttle bus service from either the Argyle Street car park or the Regatta Grounds. Parking at the Regatta Grounds is free and standard parking fees apply at the Argyle Street car park.
