Getting Around Melbourne

There are a variety of ways to get to the venue from your hotel.

By Public Transport

By Car

If you are travelling entirely within the CBD Free Tram Zone, you can hop on and hop off any tram for free; you don’t need a ticket. 

 

If any part of your trip is outside the free tram zone, you must have a valid Myki (public transport ticket) to travel.  Public transport inspectors may issue on-the-spot fines to any passenger outside of the free tram zone without a valid Myki.

The RMIT tram stop is outside of the free tram zone.

 

More information about Public Transport Victoria’s services (including trams, trains and buses) can be found here.

​Parking is extremely limited in the Melbourne CBD and it is not recommended.

 

At the RMIT City Campus, parking is available at Building 91, 110 Victoria Street, Carlton (entry via Cardigan Street).  This facility is independently managed by GreenCo.  Casual rates are available including early bird and night parking options.  GreenCo can be contacted via 1300 734 959.
