Heading to Bendigo from Melbourne?

If you’re heading to Bendigo on Saturday or Sunday, V/Line is replacing trains with coaches until Gisborne, for level crossing work to be done. Then it’s on from Gisborne to Bendigo Railway Station.

Going back, train to Gisborne both days, then bus into Melbourne station. Shouldn’t affect departure and arrival times too much.

For those heading to Bendigo by car, there is parking in the carpark behind the Capital (and no football/netball at the Oval this weekend). But please do note that it’s going to be busy, so you might need to allow for a couple of minutes to find a park nearby (along Barnard Street is good).

We’re expecting a few showers, so factor that in too. We have shuttle carts on the go between The Capital and Ulumbarra all day, to help you get to the sessions you want.
