The Merri Creek bike path runs along the edge of CERES, so it’s very accessible for walkers and cyclists. You can enter via the gate closest to the Blyth St/Arthurton Road bridge in Brunswick East. Simply follow the green council signs along the path to CERES. The Merri Creek Bike Path also connects to the Capital City Trail.
Take the Number 96 tram to East Brunswick from the city (from Bourke St, travelling up Nicholson St) all the way to the end of the line (the intersection of Blyth and Nicholson Streets). CERES is about a 5 minute walk from the tram stop. Turn right down Blyth St (which becomes Arthurton Rd) and take the second street on the left (Roberts St) - CERES is about 100m up Roberts St on the right - you can't miss it. Turn right at Lee St and walk in.
Take the 503 Essendon to East Brunswick bus. Departs from Essendon Station and runs via Russell St, Napier St, Brewster St, Pascoe Vale Rd, Albion Street, Nicholson St, Stewart St, Roberts St and Arthurton Rd to the terminus at the corner of Blyth and Ryan St. Get off at the Lee St stop and you’re right out the front.
We have some parking on site but it can be busy, particularly after 9am on Wednesday and Saturday when our market is on. Parking is also available on side streets (please read the street signs) and in the Cretan Brotherhood car park on Stewart Street.
