Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
Ozwater’19 will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC). When it comes to location, it doesn’t get much better than one of the world’s most livable cities. Set on the banks of the iconic Yarra River, MCEC is just a short walk away from the city centre, providing the ideal starting place to uncover Melbourne’s world-famous laneways, restaurants, galleries and boutiques.
You can reach Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre by various transport modes:
Airport - When you arrive from Melbourne Airport (also known as Tullamarine Airport), you have three options. You can catch a taxi from outside your terminal or request an Uber by following the signs outside your terminal to the pick up zones. You can also get the Skybus, which has a service called the Southbank Docklands Express that stops at the Clarendon Street entrance of MCEC.
