4/ Meeting Location: St Kilda Rd, Melbourne (details available by email)

OR Back Up at: Sandridge Centre – Trugo Club Rooms
1 Tucker Avenue, Port Melbourne (Garden City part)
(Enter along Clark St which turns into Tucker Av, from Graham St)
Melways reference is Map 56 K2 (or 2J A4).

Come off the Westgate/Citylink/ freeways at either Todd Rd or Montague St, and head for the Williamstown Rd and Graham St intersection (2J A2). Turn down Graham St and head south east away from the freeway.
IF Coming from the east consider not using the Burnley Tunnel and then come through SouthBank, or better yet, use Dandenong Rd to Chapel St and cut across to Canterbury Rd in St Kilda which is on the Bay side of the Light Rail to St Kilda.

Turn west into Clarke St next to the Port Melbourne Primary School. This then heads straight into Tucker Avenue. There is small car park for 8 cars, otherwise park in Clarke St rather than the narrow street next to the centre (there are no parking restrictions).

Do NOT park on the grass (as residents will complain about our group), instead park in Clarke St, which is wide with plenty of parking available and stretches toward Port Melbourne Primary School with only short walk to the meeting.

We will open up the gate and room from 5.40pm.

The meeting will commence at about 6.00pm (or a little later depending on traffic conditions) and normally goes to about 8.15pm.
