Getting There


Point Nepean is approximately 100kms from Melbourne CBD and takes 90-120 minutes by car during the busy summer holiday season. Onsite parking for 600 cars is available at the venue. We suggest you pre-purchase to avoid disappointment. Please consider carpooling and if you intend to drink please ensure you have a designated driver so that you can leave the site without fear of failing a breathalyser test.

Onsite Car Parking

Onsite car parking is available at $20 per vehicle. There are only 600 onsite carparks available so we suggest you pre-purchase a carpark pass to avoid disappointment. Carpark passes will only be available for purchase on event day if they have not sold out beforehand.
The car park is in operation from 10am to 6:30pm and please note that cars cannot be left onsite overnight – they must be removed from the site by 7pm. Please also note that there is NO parking available near POINT NEPEAN or in the surrounding neighbourhood. Please do not park in surrounding streets or parks, as this is the cause of much aggravation for residents of the area. You run the risk of being fined or towed, as police and council rangers will be targeting illegal parking. Car Parking passes available for purchase.
