Transport

Our campus is located in the heart of the vibrant Perth suburb of Claremont. Bordered by Christ Church Grammar School and the Swan River, we are on the corner of Stirling Highway and Corry Lynn Road. There are a numerous options to explore when planning your journey to MLC. We encourage our MLC girls to walk, cycle or take public transport, where appropriate. When visiting MLC for the first time, it is helpful to note traffic on Stirling Highway can be congested during peak traffic times. Depending on the time of day of your visit, limited parking is available in the Meredith Taylor Health and Sports Centre Car Park and in the Hadley Hall Car Park on campus. Limited time free parking is available at Claremont Quarter, should you prefer to avoid congestion during peak times and enjoy the five-minute walk to campus.

Drop Off and Pick Up Areas

There are two major entry points to the College for parents dropping off their children.

Parents of all students are encouraged to enter the College from Stirling Highway to drop their children in the car park adjacent to Hadley Hall. There is also a larger car park in front of the Meredith Taylor Health and Sports Centre which can be utilised.

The second access point is via Corry Lynn Road which is available as a drop off or pick up point for students from the Early Learning Centre to Year 12. It is likely that students finishing classes at 3.30pm will not arrive at Corry Lynn Road for pick up until around 3.40pm. It is illegal to park along the street and verges during peak times on Corry Lynn Road and the surrounding streets, except in marked bays.

There is limited parking available in all areas of the College, so car-pooling is encouraged whenever possible.
