There will be restricted drop off/pickup spaces outside the Floriade main Gate on Regatta Place in front of the Canberra Visitors Centre, to enable coaches to drop off and pick up. Vehicles will be required to turn off Barrine Drive onto Regatta Place.
Signage will be positioned to guide vehicles and designate the drop off/pick up area. A Traffic Controller will also be positioned at the intersection of Regatta Point and the designated thoroughfare parking bay to communicate the process to vehicles.
Set-down and pick-up is permitted at Regatta Point however coach and bus parking in this location is prohibited.
After dropping off passengers, buses and coaches are being encouraged to seek parking at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) where there is ample coach parking.
The entrance to the coach parking is on Braybrooke Street which can be accessed either via Battye Street or Ginninderra Drive.
The AIS has a café onsite, which is located within the visitors center.
Alternatively, you can try the below coach bays which have limited first come-first served parking.
Mall Road West, behind Questacon | 7-8 spaces
Lennox Crossing, National Museum of Australia| 3-4 spaces

During the event, the Regatta Point bus and coach parking will be converted into accessible parking and therefore will not be available for the use of buses or coaches.
