Important Information: Please note that the West Gate Tunnel Project will have varying roadworks and road closures in the area along Wurundjeri Way between April 2023 and Dec 2023, please check their website for disruptions https://bigbuild.vic.gov.au/projects/west-gate-tunnel-project


If being dropped off by friends or rideshare services, for safety reasons please do not drop off on Dudley St before the lights, please go beyond the stoplights to where there are parking bays. The best and safest option is Rosslyn St which runs parallel to Dudley St.


Festival Hall does not have its own carpark.

For accessibility bookings we endeavour to arrange access to the road closure area in Rosslyn St at the back of the venue. Please note that spaces are limited and patrons are required to contact Festival Hall Administration to arrange this prior to the event day at admin@festivalhall.com.au

There is limited street parking available in the West Melbourne/North Melbourne area, but please be aware of signed parking times. Please check out the Festival Hall website for nearby car park options.
