Getting to the Swans on Friday

The Sydney Swans take on the Adelaide Crows on Friday night, with a big crowd expected for the club's first home game at the SCG.

Here is all you need to know about the getting to the ground and finding your seat.


The easiest way to access the SCG and Allianz Stadium is by public transport. Moore Park is a 20-minute walk or a short bus ride from Central Station and fans are encouraged to arrive early, allowing plenty of time to enter the venue and find your seat.

Please note that special event buses (Route 1) no longer run from Chalmers Street at Central Station. Due to light rail construction, shuttle buses now depart via Eddy Avenue. Return services operate for approximately one hour after each event.

All public transport schedule information from surrounding Sydney suburbs is available at Transport NSW or by calling 131500. For event specific traffic, road closure and Special Event Clearway information visit Live Traffic.  

Gates open at 5.50pm, with the Swans-Crows match to get under way at 7.50pm.


EP2 and EP3: Public parking on event days only ($25 fee per car). Entry is via Driver Avenue off Moore Park Road for EP2 (Kippax) and Lang Road for EP3 (Showground).

Driver Avenue:
The centre portion of Driver Avenue is closed for Swans games.

Entertainment Quarter:
Entry to EQ parking via Lang Road (fees apply).

Sydney Boys High School: Public parking available (fees apply). Entry to Sydney Boys High School via Cleveland Street.

Sydney Girls High School: Public parking available (fees apply). Entry to Sydney Girls High School via Anzac Parade and Cleveland Street.

Taxi/hire car/Uber: There are permanent taxi ranks located in the Entertainment Quarter on Errol Flynn Boulevard (opposite the Hordern Pavilion) and another on Moore Park Road opposite the Olympic Hotel.

Cycleways: Moore Park, Centennial Park and the surrounding areas boast some of the most picturesque cycleways in Sydney and is one of the most cycle-friendly public spaces in the city.

Cyclists will find many bike racks in convenient locations along Driver Avenue in Moore Park and all pathways in Moore Park are shared footpath/cycleways.

Walking: Take the family for a stroll in Centennial Park, have lunch in the Entertainment Quarter or walk off the adrenaline after the match with a stroll to local eateries.

The precinct is easily accessible via the Tibby Cotter Walkway which delivers patrons from Moore Park west to the Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust precinct.

Works under way at the Sydney Football Stadium have no impact on ease of access to the SCG with the majority of construction focused at the northern end of the venue.

The SCG is working closely with key stakeholders to improve transport, circulation and traffic in the precinct, which includes a reconfiguration of Moore Park east and the construction of a new bus terminal over the next six months.
Moore Park event shuttle buses will now drop off and pick up from the northern end of Driver Avenue. Signage, wayfinding staff and bus marshals will be on-site to assist with the change, which is likely to remain in place until April 30.

Fans are only accessing two car parks on Driver Avenue, instead of three, and work is under way to improve the fan thoroughfare for the Swans season.

The temporary bus loop is located on Driver Avenue, directly opposite the Arthur Morris Gates.
