Getting to the game

Whether driving, walking or catching public transport, here's everything you need to know about getting to our Round 1 game!

Public transport

To ensure you are inside the Ground in time for the match start, arrive early and leave plenty of time for the entry process.

Travel Disruptions

We understand there will be travel disruptions on the following lines Belgrave, Frankston, Stony Point, Seymour and Shepparton. Visit to plan your journey ahead of time.


There are two train stations close to the MCG. Jolimont (otherwise known as MCG Station) is north of the ground and offers a five-minute stroll through Yarra Park to the ground. From any railway station in the central business district, take the Hurstbridge or Epping lines.

The other station is Richmond on the south eastern side of the MCG. It's a slightly longer walk to the ground but you can walk past the Punt Road Oval to the Shane Warne Stand side.

To get to Richmond station from the city, take any train on the Lilydale, Belgrave, Alamein, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Pakenham, Cranbourne, Frankston or Sandringham lines. Advice from Public Transport Victoria for MCG patrons.

Three tram routes provide access to the MCG.

  • No. 75 (City-Vermont South) travels along Flinders St and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade.
  • No. 48 (Docklands/City-North Balwyn) travels along Collins Street and connects with the eastern suburbs via Wellington Parade. Both these routes stop just outside the MCG.
  • No. 70 (Docklands/City-Wattle Park) travels along Flinders Street then detours via Melbourne Park and the tram stop is a short walk across the footbridge to the ground.

The Bus route 246 is run by National Bus Company, which links La Trobe University with Elsternwick Station in a useful service for patrons from the northern and southern suburbs. The 246 stops in Punt Road, just a punt kick from the ground.

There is no public parking available at The MCG. Parking is available for accessibility and accredited passholders only.

Parking for disability permit holders can be pre-booked via Ticketek here.
