If you are driving to the Library, please note that the Library's carpark has limited all-day and 2-hour parking and this area is regularly patrolled by parking inspectors. However, the large carpark across the road from the NLA has free all-day parking.

For those who are flying in, please allow plenty of time for taxis to and from the airport - traffic around that area is extremely slow due to on-going major road reconstruction. Following are two taxi services:


Elite Taxis: Phone - 132227
SMS your name/pick-up address and time to 0417 672 773

Canberra Business Limousines: Phone - 0412 970 135

Please check in at the registration table which will be in the foyer. We will not be providing name tags, instead, a sticky label will be given to you. Please have it visible for entry into the Theatre. You can also leave coats and bags at the cloak room, security desk, on the ground floor.

The caterers have been informed about dietary restrictions noted in registrations. Vegetarian dishes are included in the standard catering.. Morning tea and lunch will be served in the foyer.
