Getting there and getting home:

Parking on site is very limited, so we recommend you catch public transport or car pool. The front service road outside the Civic Centre building will be closed for the duration of the event.

If you arrive late for the concert, please note we have a second viewing area for the fireworks located behind the Whitehorse Centre. This area also has a big screen so you can still watch the show.

When leaving the site, please be mindful of changed traffic conditions on Whitehorse Road and Rooks Road. Rooks Road will be temporarily closed post event, and a detour will be made via Station Street. If you have found a park on the event site, exiting traffic will be directed around the back of the Nunawading Police Station and out Humphreys Ave. No cars will be able to exit via the Civic Centre entry.

Please note, parking for the event will be limited so make your way by bike, on foot or by catching public transport. A dedicated bicycle parking area will be available for the public (next to Nunawading Library).
