Vehicle parking

In order to assist visitors we would like to make you aware that vehicle parking opportunities around the precinct of the Clinical School are limited, and consist mainly of City of Greater Geelong controlled, metered parking, with time restrictions ranging from between ½ an hour to two hours.
