This year’s show has some great new options to assist with access to the Show and parking. Please do not park over foot paths, or stop on the side of the road to drop off – this inhibits foot and vehicle traffic and can spoil other peoples visit. There is a special drop off point provided for right at the front door.
Walk the Skywalk! – To save getting caught up in traffic around the busy Waterfront we encourage you to park in one of the many parking areas throughout the City and then take the spectacular skywalk down to the Waterfront. It is quick and convenient, and a true experience to enjoy.
Kitchener Drive Carpark – next to the Vibe on the Waterfront (first 2 hours free – third hour just $1.00)
Turn right at the roundabout – it’s just a short walk back to the Convention Centre.
Underground Parking & Ticketing at the Darwin Convention Centre – (keep your car cool for a $5.00 flat fee) – turn left at the round-a-bout. Miss the ticketing queue. Buy your show tickets as you enter the car-park and take the lift directly up into the Show. What a great option!
Drop & Drive – turn left at the round-a-bout and look for the directional signs to the Drop & Drive point.
Get yourself and friends and family dropped off at the ‘Drop & Drive’ at the front of the Darwin Convention Centre and organize to be picked up again later – this way you don’t need to worry about parking.
