Parking

There is no available street parking at or around the embassies.

All attendees to the event should be aware that it is an offence under the National Land (Road Transport) Ordinance 2014 to park a vehicle on open space in the area where the event is being held. Open space is any area that is not designed for the movement or parking of motor vehicles, such as grassed areas, footpaths and landscaped areas. The National Capital Authority will be enforcing parking regulations for the duration of this event, and attendees should ensure they park legally to avoid the risk of an infringement being issued to their vehicle.

ACT Policing and parking inspectors will be on site monitoring illegal parking.

We advise you plan your trip and park in one of the nearby carparks and take our Windows to the World shuttle bus.

Shuttle Bus

A dedicated shuttle bus will run from the city between ‘park and ride’ locations and participating venues from 9.30am to 5.30pm.

A reminder that there is very little parking on the streets in Yarralumla. As such, additional buses have been scheduled to cater to Windows to the World attendees on Saturday 12 October.

On Saturday 12 October the first bus will leave from Government House at 9am with a second leaving at 9.15am. Buses will then leave from the event bus stop on London Circuit outside Mooseheads at 9.30am and continue every 15 minutes until 5.30pm.

We strongly advise you to park your car and use our dedicated Windows To The World ACTION bus shuttle.
