Public transport is the best way to get to and from Newcastle, with extra train, bus, ferry and light rail services scheduled to help get you to and from the event.
In addition to the regular timetable, extra trains will run to help move crowds to and from Newcastle on the day along the Central Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter lines, to coincide with show times. The closest train station to Foreshore Park is Newcastle Interchange. From there, catch the light rail to the Newcastle Beach stop, which is a short walk to the event. You can also walk to the foreshore from the Interchange, following the signage in place.
A Park and Ride option will be available at McDonald Jones Stadium with buses travelling between the Stadium and Newcastle all day. Motorists could also consider parking at commuter carparks at key stations along the Central Coast, Hunter and Newcastle lines including Wyong, Morisset and Fassifern then continue the remainder of the journey up to Newcastle by train.
A Park and Walk option is available at Stockton (gold coin donation for charity), where viewing areas are only a short walk away.
Mobility Pass Holders have designated parking available on Wharf Road (between Argyle Street and Watt Street) and at Stockton Ferry Wharf carpark. A Mobility Pass must be displayed to get through the road closures.
If you are going to the event we recommend you plan ahead, allow extra time and be patient. Plan your journey by using the transportnsw.info and newcastletransport.info
