Getting there & maps
Where is the event being held?
The event is taking place on Wellington Square, at the corner of Wellington and Hill Streets in East Perth. Please see map below, or check location on Google Maps.
Where do I park?
The nearest parking to the event is the City of Perth Parking area located at 158 Royal St in East Perth, pictured immediately below. This is a paid parking area.
There will be limited street parking available near the event site, some of which is reserved for our shuttle bus service and ACROD permit holders.
Wellington Square itself is a strictly no parking zone.
Any vehicle parking on Wellington Square may be issued with a parking infringement notice from the City of Perth – and risk being towed if deemed a risk to the event.
Where is the nearest bus stop or train station?
The nearest train station is Claisebrook Station.
On Christmas Day, Transperth will operate on the Sunday-public holiday timetable and there will be no CAT services available. We recommend planning your public transport journey ahead of time, using information from Transperth directly.
The nearest bus stops to the event are on Wellington Street and these are stops numbered 12909, 12911, 12917 and 12919 (pictured immediately below).
Will there be a shuttle bus for volunteers?
You may know from previous years, that a shuttle bus service provided guest transport between Claisebrook Station and the event site. This year, we have extended this service to enable volunteers to utilise the same service between Claisebrook Station and Wellington Square.
Please note, the shuttle bus will operate between the times of 9:30am and 12:00pm and 1:00pm to 3:00pm only. Volunteers commencing before 9:45am will therefore be unable to utilise this service and must make alternative arrangements.
To utilise the shuttle bus service, look out for a sign as you depart the southern side of Claisebrook station. You will be greeted by other fellow volunteers (wearing Mission Australia Volunteer t-shirts), who will show you the way.
Where do I go once I arrive?
When arriving on site, please proceed toward the Volunteer Concierge & Registration Area at the south-western corner of the marquee (that is the one nearest to the intersection of Hill and Wellington Streets - see map pictured below).
Here you will be greeted by the Volunteer Concierge Team, who will register you into the event and give you a lanyard for wearing throughout the day. The Volunteer Concierge team will also point you in the direction of your area supervisor, who you will report to for a pre-event briefing and further instruction.
Throughout the day, you’ll be able to return to this area (the Volunteer Recharge Zone), such as to eat your lunch, use the facilities, reapply sunscreen or to take in some water!
Please do not enter the event site via the guest entry.
Where can I go to the toilet?
Volunteer toilets will be located in the volunteer registration area (pictured in site map directly below), which includes two portable toilets and one portable wheelchair accessible toilet. See site map below.
