Getting to View Street

View Street is in the heart of Bendigo; coming in from Melbourne via the Calder Highway, when the road divides at Alexandra Fountain, you turn left.

If you arrive by train, it’s a ten minute walk left up Mitchell Street to Alexandra Fountain, then a couple of minutes walk straight on to The Capital.

All the venues are clustered around The Capital: allow about ten minutes to walk from View Street to Ulumbarra Theatre.

There is ticketed parking in View Street and in the car park behind The Capital (which is also handy to Ulumbarra Theatre). Surrounding streets have free parking (some are time-limited on Friday and Saturday morning).
