One option is voucher parking, and at this time of year, there should be no problem finding a spot. A good option in that regard is a voucher lot right near the corner of Barry Drive and North Road , adjacent to tennis courts (some courts recently removed and replaced by parking lots). That lot also happens to be opposite the two computer science buildings. It is a short walk (exact route) to the south east around the Sports Union via stepping stones over Sullivan's creek to get to the MCC complex. More details on ANU visitor parking are available at this page.

One can usually find off-street parking in the adjacent suburb of Acton, for example on Masson St about 1km walk from the Manning Clarke Center. Walking directions. If you zoom in to the map, you will see parked cars on the Northern side of Masson St. Most of the closer streets do not permit parking during the day.

If you don't wish to park off-street or use pay-and-display parking, you can request a one day parking permit from Steve Blackburn. If you chose this option, please call Steve between 9am and 10am on Friday morning (04 1012 5636) and he will arrange for you to get a pass. Using the pass allows you to park in the "General Permit" and "Staff Permit" areas of campus, subject to availability of parking spaces. The nearest such area and the walking route to MMC are indicated here.
