They’ll be dropping folks off in the City Centre as well as Gungahlin, Belconnen and Woden town centres. If you are heading out towards Queanbeyan you’ll need to first get a bus into the city and then transfer to a bus going to Queanbeyan from the interchange at Platform 6.

Walk to the city

It’s a super easy 20-minute walk into the city centre and the perfect amount of time to debrief with mates. Follow the directions of the ushers and stick to the footpaths and footbridges.

Stay safe by following the signs, and instruction from traffic controllers and police officers. Don’t get stuck attempting to walk North along Commonwealth Avenue!



Turn left as you exit Spilt Milk and use the designated Taxi Rank to find your ride home.

You can find the Taxi rank outside the festival on the eastern side of Barrine Drive. Please be aware no vehicles are allowed to stop along Commonwealth Avenue during Spilt Milk.


Pick Up Zone 

There will be road closures around Commonwealth Park for Spilt Milk, so make sure your mum/partner/neighbour knows where they can pick you up from in advance. There will be a designated public drop off and pick up zone at in the carpark off Cockhill Street (across Commonwealth Avenue). Do not stop on Commonwealth Avenue, ACT police will be monitoring the road and issuing on the spot fines.

Hot tip! Save your designated driver some heartache and get them to meet you at Civic Pool carpark – only a short walk across the footbridge from the festival and totally free from road closures.
