Paid parking is available under the Federation Concert Hall in the Hotel Grand Chancellor parking lot off Macquarie Street, and paid street parking can be found on surrounding streets.

We recommend arriving 30 minutes early to allow time for securing a park.

Please note that there is no lift access to the hotel lobby. We recommend being dropped off in the hotel driveway off Davey Street if you would like to avoid stair use.
