Plenty of parking is available in the school main carpark, accessible off Monaro Crescent. It is then a very short walk to the Snow Centre.

Note that on Saturday morning the school ovals are often used for sport, so we suggest that you arrive early to get a car park. Sport is usually concluded by early afternoon.
