Will there be a shuttle bus
A shuttle bus will operate to transport guests from train certain stations and the event site on Langley Park. It will also pass Wellington Square, East Perth en-route, to collect any guests who have gone to the incorrect venue.
The train stations included in the shuttle bus route are;
- Perth City Railway Station
- Elizabeth Quay Railway Station
- Claisebrook Cove Railway Station
- Wellington Square (the former venue for CLIP) – in case anyone goes there in error
Please note. The shuttle bus will operate between the times of 9:30am and 12:00pm and 1:00pm and 3:00pm only. Volunteers commencing before 9:45am will therefore be unable to utilise this service and must make alternative arrangements.
