Golden Square Car Park
This activation takes place in a multi-level car park that does not have lift access. Participants traverse four flights of stairs (32 steps) to reach the start of the exhibition, and cover a distance of 370m to view all of the works. To exit the venue one must go down four flights of stairs (33 steps). The journey involves some ramps and inclines due to the existing design of the car park. There is a sit-down bar and numerous rest points along the journey.
We have an assisted access plan in place for those with mobility needs. Please ensure you book one of our Accessibility tickets by contacting our Ticketing team on 03 9662 4242 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and letting us know of your access requirements.
Accessibility ticket purchasers are entitled to a free companion ticket so that a friend or carer may assist you with the journey. The RISING team can transport those with Accessibility tickets via a wheelchair accessible vehicle to the higher levels of the car park.
