TRANSPORT

Complimentary Shuttle Bus

Blundstone Arena provides a complimentary shuttle bus service operated by Metro to and from Blundstone Arena from the Elizabeth Street Bus Mall (Hobart).

 

The free shuttle bus service departs the Elizabeth Street Bus Mall (Hobart) from two hours prior to the BBL match start time. Busses will continue running until approximately 30 minutes from the scheduled match start time.  Please note for the double header we will have two additional services for the WBBL game, leaving the Bus Mall at 11am. 

 

Please note – the Bus departure location has moved to the northern end of Church Street and busses will depart at the end of the match.  Following on from the services to the Elizabeth St Bus Mall, there will be free services to Kingston and Claremont and Bridgewater.

 

The Kingston bus will leave from Stop E and the Claremont/Bridgewater bus will leave from Stop F in the Bus Mall.  There will be 3 buses going to Kingston and 3 to Claremont leaving from the city.

VALET BIKE PARKING

Blundstone Arena has teamed up with the Bicycle Network of Tasmania for a free secure valet bike parking service for the double header.  It will be open on the corner of Church and Beach Streets, from 11.15am to 7.45pm, so that you can catch both the WBBL and the BBL games.

Blundstone Arena is perfectly placed to ride your bike to. The Clarence Foreshore Trail runs right past it and that means riding a bike to the cricket or football is a viable choice for Eastern Shore residents from Geilston Bay to Howrah, particularly for families.  People from other areas can Park 'n Ride, leaving your car at a spot handy to the Clarence Foreshore Trail. 

The access from the Clarence Foreshore Trail to that corner of the grounds is via a new path through a carpark on the southern side of the arena, and then along a (hopefully) quiet stretch of Beach Street.  Watch out for traffic in this last section of your ride. The below map outlines some ideas that patrons can park and ride from on the Eastern Shore:

PARKING

South Street Carpark is available for parking. If you are driving to the game we recommend that you follow the Tasman Highway off the bridge and come back to Bellerive via the Shoreline roundabout and Clarence St.  This route avoids being stuck in traffic and Rosny Hill Road being inundated with traffic.

 


WEATHER FORECAST

Perfect cricket watching weather - a top of 22 degrees and partly cloudy.

DRESS CODE

Purple, purple and more purple!

 

WHEN YOU GET TO THE GROUND….

 

You can enter via the Western (Ricky Ponting Stand end), Northern and Southern Gates. 

We encourage everyone to come to the Western Gate for quicker entry as this is our biggest entrance. Leave your bags at home for express lane entry and pre-purchase your ticket to speed up the entry further.

 

There will be lots of fun activations, face painting and activities for everyone on the Ricky Ponting Stand concourse.
