What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Here is a map to the venue, the ANU School of Music, which is located on Childers Street.
Bus: You can check the Action Bus timetable and catch a bus to the event.
Taxi: You can pre-book a Taxi online. There can be a long wait on the phone if you call on the day, so we recommend you pre-book a taxi. Your destination will be 'School of Music, Childers Street, The Australian National University, Acton.'
Walk: If you will be living on campus you can walk to the event. If you have time before the day, locate the building and walk from your residence to see how long it will take you on the day.
Drive: Parking on or near campus will cost money and there is no guarentee you will be able to find a parking space for your car on the day. If you plan to drive to ANU throughout the year you can organise an ANU Parking Permit online before the day. If you arrive for this event before 8am you will most likely be able to find a parking spot. Allow extra time to find a park and pay for parking.
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
