The Learning Centre is located on the eastern boundary of the Brunswick East Park, right in the bend of the Merri Creek. It’s closest major entrance and parking is on Lee street. There is no car access within CERES, so all supplies need to be brought in on foot. Special Events with a CERES Venue Supervisor have the added benefit of vehicle access to the venue.
