Pick up/drop off

The nearest pick up and drop off points to Arts Centre Melbourne’s Theatres Building and Hamer Hall are:

  • In the Arts Centre Melbourne car park – cars who enter and leave within 15 minutes will not be charged a fee. Take a ticket from the machine at the entrance into the car park and put it back into the machine on the way out.
  • Both outside lanes on St Kilda Road, across from the Theatres Building. Drop off in the Northbound lane is better if you have booked an Arts Centre Melbourne wheelchair and requested a staff meet you with it.
