Finding your way to the conference venue.

The 7th International Nitrogen Initiative Conference is being held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).  The MCG is located just outside of the Melbourne CBD and is easily accessible via public transport or taxi and is also within walking distance of many hotels and Melbourne attractions.  The conference facilities are located on Level 1 in the Olympic Stand and entry is through Gate 3.

  • Walking – The MCG is well serviced by pedestrian bridges that provide easy access to the venue from a number of directions.
    • The William Barak Bridge provides walking access from Flinders Street station to the MCG.  It rises from Birrarung Marr over Batman Avenue, the Jolimont Railway corridor and Brunton Avenue before descending into Yarra Park and is the link between Melbourne City and the MCG.
    • Walking from Pullman on the Park – cross the walkway located opposite the hotel off Wellington Street and follow the paths through Yarra Park to Gate 3 at the MCG (Approx 5 minute walk).
