Moore Park special event public transport options

If you are visiting the SCG, Allianz Stadium or any of the other Moore Park sporting and entertainment precinct venues on a special (or major) event day, plan your trip using the Transport Infoline website or call 131 500. On most occasions you can purchase a Moore Park Link Ticket from any CityRail station - this ticket includes train and bus travel to Moore Park.

During major events, special shuttle buses usually operate between Central Station or Circular Quay and Moore Park. For information visit the Transport Infoline's Moore Park event shuttle bus services website.

Moore Park special event parking options

While we encourage the use of public transport to Moore Park, for those who choose to drive to attend a major event there are temporary parking areas set aside in Moore Park (Kippax Field and Showground Field - enter from Driver Avenue).

If you are early enough, the Entertainment Quarter car parking station is also available. Parking fees apply to these event car parking areas.

Relax at EQ before driving home

On major event days there is often very heavy traffic in and around the Moore Park precinct. If you're wanting to avoid the worst of the congestion and the associated driving stress, we recommend that you arrive earlier or delay your departure and enjoy a drink or a meal at Moore Park's Entertainment Quarter.

Road closures & live traffic updates

If you'd like information about the latest traffic conditions, phone 131 700 or visit the Live Traffic website.

Some select events may offer integrated ticketing for patrons - this option means that public transport and/or parking arrangements may be included in the entrance ticket price for an event.
