Getting here

Located in the central business district, the Wheeler Centre is within easy walking distance of public transport, taxis and bicycle hire stations.


Melbourne Central Station is directly opposite the State Library’s front entrance. Most metropolitan trains stop at this station. If you’re travelling from regional Victoria, you can transfer from your regional train to a metropolitan train at Southern Cross or North Melbourne stations.



Trams can be caught from the superstop outside the State Library on Swanston Street, between Little Lonsdale and LaTrobe Streets. Other nearby stops include those a block away, at the corners of Elizabeth and LaTrobe Streets.



The nearest bus stops are located on Lonsdale, Russell and Exhibition Streets.



There are several bike racks close to The Wheeler Centre where you can lock up your bike. There’s also a Melbourne Bike Share station at the corner of Swanston and Little Lonsdale Streets, where you can hire or return a shared bike.



The nearest taxi rank is on Elizabeth Street, outside Melbourne Central. Several private tricycle taxi companies also operate in Melbourne’s CBD.



Parking is available at QV and Melbourne Central shopping centres, both nearby, for a fee.

There are two disabled parking spaces on Little Lonsdale Street (just east of the Swanston Street corner), and three disabled parking spaces on Latrobe Street between Swanston and Russell Streets – all with two-hour limits during weekday business hours. (Please note that The Wheeler Centre is not accessible via State Library Victoria.)

For more information about car parking in the city, visit the City of Melbourne’s website.
