Where can I park?
Parking is always difficult. It’s a good idea to park on the Kalmia side of Ellerslie and walk through the tunnel on Sultan Street or via the overbridge at the top of Ellerslie Main Street.
Where are the toliets?
Toilets are both in the hall (including baby change table) or at the end of Arthur Street.
Is there somewhere I can feed my baby?
If people are looking for somewhere quiet to breast or bottle feed, Denise Lee MP’s office has a story time session and private space for babies.
When and where are the General Collective Kids Markets?
From 10am – 1pm in the Arthur Street carpark
Are there disability parks available?
Yes, we have 4 on Findlay Street (behind the Ellerslie Mall), and 2 in the Robert Street carpark.
