Located in the heart of Newport, The Substation is a stone’s throw away from the banks of the Birrarung (Yarra River).

The Substation is located approximately 200 metres from Newport train station and the Newport Interchange bus stop.

There is ample off-street car parking on both sides of the building, including accessible parking spaces.

There are two bike racks less than 100 metres from the building, as well as a PTV Parkiteer bike cage next to our carpark. We encourage you to use these facilities and to always lock up your bikes.

Visitors may enter The Substation using the ramp at the main entrance. There is an elevator on the ground floor, to the left of the lobby, providing access to levels 1, 2 and 3.

Galleries 2 and 3 each contain two sets of stairs for access to the basement and mezzanine levels.

There are gender-neutral toilets on every level, including accessible toilets on the ground floor and level 1.

We are committed to continually improving our services to ensure our events can be enjoyed by all. If you have specific access requirements (including seating arrangements for events) please get in touch via info@thesubstation.org.au

The Substation is once again excited to invite guests and visitors into the building.
