Arriving by car
The Royal Children’s Hospital is located on Flemington Road in Parkville, an inner suburb just north of the Melbourne CBD. The hospital is only minutes from the city centre, and a 20-30 minute drive from Melbourne Airport (Tullamarine).
There are restricted drop off/pick up zones outside the Emergency Department and in the circular driveway outside the main entrance. These areas are monitored by security staff and you risk a fine if you stay longer than the designated time.
Abundant car parking is available beneath the hospital in an underground car park. Access is via Entry 1, 2 or 4 from Flemington Road. To gain entry, take a ticket from the ticket box at the boom gate and the gate will open. There are two sections to the car park; one section is beneath the hospital at 50 Flemington Road, and the other is beneath the new retail precinct next to the hospital at 48 Flemington Road. The two sections are linked by underground roadways, and the Blue lifts in 48 Flemington Road take you directly to Main Street – a short, indoor walk to the main clinical areas of the hospital.
