Attention: Coach/Bus Drivers – Change to drop off areas at Darling Harbour in 2018:

Coaches can no longer park at the rear of Hall 7 allowing passengers walk through Hall 7 to the entrance of the fair. This year Hall 7 will be used as part of the Craft & Quilt Fair and so cannot be accessed from the back of the building as was done in 2017.

New drop off: Drivers can drop off passengers at the public bus zone on Darling Drive – located just outside of the ICC Theatre. This space is a public bus stop, large enough for one bus at a time and is subject to the rules and regulations that apply to public bus stops. Please note: ICC does not manage this area, or guarantee the availability of this space as it is a public bus stop. From this drop off point, visitors can move to Moriarty Walk, and then use the escalators of lifts to access the exhibition centre. For images of drop off zone click here and for a diagram click here

After dropping off passengers, there is a coach parking area further down Darling Drive at approximately 900 Darling Drive, Haymarket, 2000 (behind the UTS Library/near Paddy’s Market) click here for image/map.
