On days in which the MCG hosts events, the MCG homepage and event detail pages will feature live updates on the availability of parking in Yarra Park. Please note that car parking in Yarra Park may not be available for all events at the MCG.

Yarra Park Car Parking Details

When operational, public parking in Yarra Park is available for $10, payable by EFTPOS only. Please note that we can no longer accept cash, and vehicles unable to pay via card will unfortunately not be allowed entry to Yarra Park. Before beginning your journey to the MCG, please check the car parking schedule below to ensure parking is available. 

Car parking in Yarra Park is subject to capacity. We advise that you arrive early in order to secure your park, as capacity may be reached before the start of the match. Vehicles arriving at Yarra Park gates once capacity is reached will be advised to use city car parks.

Following an event at the MCG, selected car parking gates will be held post-match to allow for safe egress from the MCG.

Gate 3 will be held for approximately 30 minutes post-match to allow for safe patron egress from the MCG. Gate 7 will be held for approximately one hour post-match due to the road closure of Brunton Avenue.
