Venue and Entry – Important: Uriarra Rd, Stromlo ACT 2611 – Western Carpark – Note: we are not based at the main Stromlo car park! – Access the event centre via Uriara Road – CLICK HERE FOR EXACT GOOGLE LOCATION of satellite car park.

Event Centre – up the fire road (see parking instructions below and follow signage) at the track start of Double Dissolution.

Parking:

  • Plenty of onsite parking – follow the orange signs from the Western carpark up into the adjoining fire roads.
  • Stromlo Forest Park has permitted us to park people inside the gate and so we will parallel park on the side of the following fire roads near the event hub: North South Link, Forest Trail and Reservoir Link Track. Fire roads will be two way so park carefully to ensure the road remains open for vehicles to depart at the end of the day.
  • If you do not intend to stay for the entire day please park outside the gate in the Western Car Park and/or along Uriarra Rd. Please follow the directions of the parking marshals.
