Parking and public transport
Access from Smith Street for free parking. There is a subway (with stairs) from the Members carpark to within the grounds of Caulfield racecourse. This avoids the need to cross Station Street. If tickets are required, turn left towards the ticket booth at Gate 23. If this park is full, attendees will be directed to the Kambrook / Maple carpark for free parking at Gate 2.
Paid public parking, for use if Members and Kambrook / Maple carparks are full and is located on Station Street opposite Caulfield Station.
Caulfield racecourse is also approachable by train, tram and bus public transport, and taxi. For further details visit the PTV website.
