We have recently learned that the parking lot at 102 Sturt Street (behind the ABC building, opposite the Melbourne Recital Centre stage door) will be closing permanently on 31 December 2013. The site is being redeveloped as the main ABC TV studios for Melbourne and will integrate with the existing ABC building on the corner. Demolition work will begin in February 2014 and the overall build is expected to take up to three years.
If you use this car park regularly when visiting Southbank Theatre, Melbourne Recital Centre, or other venues in the Arts Precinct, you will need to explore other options from 1 January.
But don’t worry – there are still plenty of other places to park near Southbank Theatre. To learn more about your options, visit our parking page.
