How to get here on public transport
Bike or Walk
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) to the intersection of Stewart and Nicholson Streets, which is the last stop. CERES is about a 2 minute walk from the tram stop. Turn right down Stewart St – CERES’ main entrance will be right in front of you, as Stewart St turns the corner and becomes Roberts St. The schools entrance is further along Roberts St – enter via Lee St.
Northcote, Anstey and Brunswick Railway Stations are the closest to CERES. Take connection buses such as the 508 from Northcote or Brunswick stations or the 503 from Anstey station and you will be a short 2 minute walk from CERES.
