PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Train

There are two train stations close to the MCG. Jolimont (otherwise known as MCG Station) is north of the ground and offers a five-minute stroll through Yarra Park to the ground. From any railway station in the central business district, take the Hurstbridge or Epping lines.

The other station is Richmond on the south eastern side of the MCG. It's a slightly longer walk to the ground but you can walk past the Punt Road Oval to the Great Southern Stand side. To get to Richmond station from the city, take any train on the Lilydale, Belgrave, Alamein, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston or Sandringham lines.

V/line run special footy trains on match day, in addition to their regular services, which makes this a great option for getting to the game. To view the additional footy services, please visit www.vline.com.au/footy.

No. 75 (City-Vermont South) travels along Flinders St and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade. 
No. 48 (Docklands/City-North Balwyn) travels along Collins Street and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade. Both these routes stop just outside the MCG. 
No. 70 (Docklands/City-Wattle Park) travels along Flinders Street then detours via Melbourne Park and the tram stop is a short walk across the footbridge to the ground.

CAR PARKING

Car parking is usually available at the MCG in Yarra Park on event days. This land is controlled by the Melbourne Cricket Club and managed on event days by Care Park. 

Parking currently costs $10 per vehicle. Please note that, in an effort to improve safety in the park, pedestrians will be given priority in Yarra Park at the conclusion of AFL matches. This is expected to cause a delay to vehicles of approximately 25 minutes before being able to exit the park.

View latest details about car park opening times.

Occasionally parts of Yarra Park are closed to save the grass after heavy rain. Street parking is very limited. 

Parking in high-rise parking buildings in the CBD is another option for MCG visitors.

 

PEDESTRIAN BRIDGES

The MCG is well serviced by pedestrian bridges that provide easy access to the stadium from a number of directions.

The William Barak Bridge, opened in 2006 in time for the Commonwealth Games, is a 525-metre bridge that provides walking access from Flinders Street station to the MCG. It rises from Birrarung Marr (near Federation Square) over Batman Avenue, the Jolimont Railway corridor and Brunton Avenue before descending into Yarra Park. The bridge links Melbourne’s fabulous sports and entertainment venues with the heart of the city.

The Rod Laver Arena footbridge links the MCG and Rod Laver Arena, travelling between the two stadiums from the MCG’s Gate 1 concourse over the railway corridor to the foot of Rod Laver Arena

The Hisense Arena footbridge runs parallel to the Rod Laver Arena footbridge, extending from the MCG’s Gate 6 concourse over the railway corridor and descending into the Olympic Park precinct on Swan Street
