Car
There is plenty of free parking at the rear of the Centre for participants, hirers and caterers.

Bus
Catch the 445 bus from Petersham Station, the 444 bus from Canterbury or the 440 from Central Station. Get off at the Cecily Street entrance to Callan Park on Balmain Road and follow the green signs to the Centre from the entrance. It’s a 5-minute walk.

Light Rail
Catch the light rail to the last stop at Lilyfield, walk up the steps and turn right in Catherine Street and cross Lilyfield Road. To your right find Grove Street and walk up the hill to Balmain Road, turn right and walk a couple of hundred metres until you reach the lights at Cecily Street at the entrance to Callan Park. Cross Balmain Road into the Park entrance and follow the green signs to the Centre.
