We recommend staying at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne, which is only 10 minutes from the Glasshouse. Other options nearby are the Pullman on the Park Melbourne or the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.

If taking a tram from the city, stop 7C (MCG – Hisense Arena) on the tram 70 route is the best option, only a short walk from the venue.

If taking the train, Richmond station is a 10 minute walk from the Glasshouse. Alternatively, it is about a 15 minute walk from Flinders Street Station. Both train stations do also connect to the tram 70 route.

The Eastern Plaza Carpark via entrance D on Olympic Boulevard (which is across the road from Glasshouse) is open for Public Parking. Parking is subject to space availability and subject to the fee set by Melbourne & Olympic Parks, which is normally $7.50. The venue strongly recommends pre-booking parking to ensure you secure your spot. https://prebook.mopt.vic.gov.au/

Alternatively, you may prefer to use the very reasonably priced metered parking on Alexandra Avenue and make the short walk over Swan Street bridge.

Business casual attire is always a good look. We recommend a jacket for air conditioned rooms.
