The M2 Motorway provides an alternative route whereby visitors can travel to the venue via Windsor and Richmond. The M7 now provides an additional, faster, link from the northern suburbs.
Parking is available on the southern side of the river for $15 per car, whereby spectators can walk around to either side of the river. There are no spectator entry fees.
Parking on the island is strictly for officials, competitors and special guests and is accessible by specific vehicle access pass.
