Getting there

Taking place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre in Victoria's capital city, the venue is extremely well-connected. That means getting to National Manufacturing Week couldn't be easier.

The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is located on the banks of the Yarra River, only a short walk from Melbourne's central business district. A 20-minute drive to Melbourne Airport connects MCEC to the rest of Australia and the world. 

HOW TO GET THERE

FROM THE AIRPORT

When you arrive from Melbourne Airport (also known as Tullamarine Airport), you have three options. You can catch a taxi from outside your terminal or request an Uber by following the signs outside your terminal to the pick up zones. You can also get the Skybus, which has a service called the Southbank Docklands Express that stops at the Clarendon Street entrance of MCEC.

TRAM

Tram routes 96, 109 (Stop 124A Casino/MCEC) will take you to our Clarendon Street entrance. Otherwise, tram routes 48 and 70 (Stop D5) take you to Flinders Street. From there, it’s just a short walk up Clarendon Street until you reach MCEC. For tram timetables or further trip planning, use Public Transport Victoria’s Journey Planner.
