Traffic Changes:
To assist with public safety and access to the ground, Moorabool Street (from Fyans Street to Kilgour Street) will be closed to all traffic 1.5 hours pre-AFL game.

A single lane along Moorabool Street will be open to allow traffic to run north to south 15 minutes after the start of the first quarter and will remain in place until the start of the last quarter.
The full road closure will then resume at approximately 9:45pm and will remain for up to 1.5 hours post-AFL game to allow patrons to exit the Stadium safely.

The temporary changed traffic conditions apply to the following locations:

  • Moorabool Street between Kilgour Street and Fyans Street
  • Access to: Strong, Lonsdale, Verner, Foster and Balliang Streets will be available via Yarra Street, during the temporary road closure. Please expect delays.
  • Access to Hopkins Street and Park Crescent for residence will be available via Fyans St.

Access for Emergency Services will be maintained at all times.

Changed traffic conditions inside the Kardinia Park Precinct will take effect pre-game. The internal road between A2 drop-off zone and A3 (Premiership Stand) car park will be closed to all traffic.

Car Parking
Limited paid car parking is available for the public to park in Kardinia Park precinct.
Car parking fees:

  • $10 GFC members

The car parking within the precinct will be open at 3pm

Please note, some car parks are closed in inclement weather.

This car parking can be accessed from:

  • Entrance A: via Kilgour Street
  • Entrance C: via Park Crescent
  • Entrance E: via The City end of Moorabool Street (accessible parking only).

Supporter Buses
Supporter buses are to drop patrons off at Yarra Street and the patrons are to walk across to GMHBA Stadium. Please pay attention to signage.

Supporter busses will enter off Latrobe Terrace into Park crescent and park in front of the marked bus bay outside Kardinia Pool. These buses will stay here for the duration of the match.

Public Transport
As a result of the changed traffic conditions on Moorabool Street, bus routes 1, 24, 41, 42, 50, 51 and 55 will be diverted 1.5 hours prior to the event until approximately 1.5 hours after the match.
The Moorabool Street bus stops between Fyans St and Kilgour St will not be serviced during the period of the temporary road closures.

Due to these changes to the traffic conditions on Moorabool Street it is necessary to divert buses and install temporary bus stops along Yarra Street. These temporary stops will be located on either side of the road at the south end of Yarra Street (near Balliang Street) and at the north end of Yarra Street (opposite South Geelong Train Station).

GMHBA Stadium is just a five minute walk from South Geelong Station.
V/Line trains run from Southern Cross to South Geelong station on the Geelong line, with special footy trains running on match days.
