Melbourne Directions

There are TWO entry/exit points, with more staff on to help - which means less queueing and faster entry to the event! We've also allowed for better event flow and access to the stalls.

How do I get there?

Due to the number of visitors to the markets, we highly recommend using public transport. Royal Exhibition Building directions and 'how to get there guide' is also available here.

Getting there by public transport

Plan your trip using PTV's Journey Planner.

Transport options include:
- Tram: Tram route 86 or tram route 96 to the corner of Nicholson and Gertrude Streets.

Getting there by bicycle

Local bicycle facilities include bike lanes on Rathdowne St and Canning St. There is also a shared pedestrian/bike path on Nicholson St.
Bicycle racks on the Plaza provide ample bike parking just outside the front door.

Where can I park?

Located under Melbourne Museum, the Museum car park is open 7 days a week from 5.30 am to midnight daily. Enter via Rathdowne Street or Nicholson Street.

Book your car park online

Please note: Melbourne Museum parking is operated entirely independently of the Finders Keepers markets.

Cash:

As we pay more attention to hand hygiene and the surfaces we all touch on a daily basis, the Finders Keepers eliminated cash handling in 2021.
Make sure you bring all your debit, credit cards, or digital payment devices, as Stallholders will abide by cashless event rules.  

No ATM’s are available on site.

Disabled access:

All areas of the building used by the markets, including toilet facilities, are accessible for wheelchairs. Designated disabled parking is available on level P2 adjacent to the lifts within the Melbourne Museum car park.
