Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is located on the banks of the iconic Yarra River in South Wharf.
We do our best to consider every detail of our Expos, but one thing sometimes ambushes us – Visitor parking. Due to venues changing arrangements on the fly, we are often not informed of potential disruptions to parking arrangements until shortly before our Expo.
To ensure your day out goes as smoothly as possible, we have published information supplied to us by the venue, but we need to point out even that information may be subject to change! Any last minute changes will be posted to our Facebook Event wall.
Travelling by car
Construction of Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s (MCEC) new multi-purpose building is currently underway alongside Convention Centre Place, opposite South Wharf DFO and Hilton Melbourne South Wharf.
Please note that building entrances, pedestrian footpaths, vehicle access and bicycle routes may be altered during the construction period. We encourage you to follow the directional signage in place to navigate around the construction zone.
Car parking spaces are currently limited within the surrounding construction zone, and in particular, the Exhibition Centre car park (entry off Normanby Road) quickly reaches capacity on busy event days.
We recommend parking at the Siddeley Street Car Park located off Wurundjeri Way which is a short walk across Seafarers Bridge to MCEC.
Discover more about car parking at MCEC here.
