Public Transport and Parking

For anyone driving to the conference, you can park in Car Park 3 in the yellow sections, next to the LAW Building, as shown on the map. It is FREE on the weekend. (For those slightly more familiar with the campus, this is also close to the Social Sciences, Arts and the Library buildings).

For those catching public transport, it takes roughly 16 minutes from the Hilton Hotel. We have screen grabbed a Google Map route to show you. However, it is best to plan your journey through the official Perth Transport Website –
