The closest train station to the CitiPower Centre is Windsor station on the Sandringham line. It is a 20-minute walk to the ground form there, so we would recommend catching a tram as the stops are much closer.

The CitiPower Centre is close to several tram lines. If you’re coming from the city, you can catch either the 3/3a, 5, 16, 64 or 67 from Flinders St and get off at the Union rd/St Kilda rd stop. Otherwise, you can catch the route 96 tram and exit at the St Kilda Station/Light Rail stop. Both of these stops are a short walk to the ground.

There is very limited parking around the ground and in the surrounding area. We would highly recommend taking public transport to the Big Weekend.
