Construction of Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s (MCEC) new multi-purpose building is currently underway alongside Convention Centre Place, opposite South Wharf DFO and Hilton Melbourne South Wharf.
Please note that building entrances, pedestrian footpaths, vehicle access and bicycle routes may be altered during the construction period. We encourage you to follow the directional signage in place to navigate around the construction zone.
Car parking spaces are currently limited within the surrounding construction zone, and in particular, the Exhibition Centre car park (entry off Normanby Road) quickly reaches capacity on busy event days.
We recommend parking at the Siddeley Street Car Park located off Wurundjeri Way which is a short walk across Seafarers Bridge to MCEC.
