The Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Rail Line (Waterfall/Cronulla/Bondi Junction) provides frequent services to Oatley and Mortdale stations. Oatley Station is just 1.5km from the start and the short walk provides an ideal warm up to the event. Trains arrive every 30 minutes. Mortdale station is a little further at 2.2km from the start but is serviced approximately every 15 minutes. Visit CityRail to find out exact train times and to check any track work scheduled on the event day on the line servicing Oatley/Mortdale.


Local on street parking is available as well as limited parking within Oatley Park, subject to time and traffic control. Use Douglas Haig Street for parking within Oatley Park on event day.
The southern (Oatley Park) end of Douglas Haig Street and Lloyd Street have a pedestrian pathway leading directly up to the main entrance of Oatley Park on Oatley Park Avenue. Using this path will save you time walking to the start if you have parked in these streets. You can also park in Pamela Avenue, Peakhurst Heights, and walk via a fire-trail to Dame Mary Gilmore Ave and the main entrance of Oatley Park. Please consider local residents and do not block driveways.
