RSES Building

How to get to The Australian National University

ANU is located in Acton on the north side of Lake Burley Griffin, just west of the Civic Centre.

Driving from Sydney, drive south along Northbourne Avenue, turn right into Barry Drive, then left at North Road. This takes you to the northern end of campus, near the University Union and Sports Union. Visitor Parking is available in the pay and display carpark at the end of North Road.

Driving from south Canberra, take the Tuggeranong Parkway following the signs to Black MountainTower, then taking the exit on to Lady Denman Drive, turning left at the end of the off ramp. Follow Lady Denman Drive which converts to Clunies Ross Dr until you reach Dickson Road. Turn right into Dickson Road to enter the western part of campus. If you are coming via the Commonwealth Ave Bridge, take the City West sign on the left, then travel along London Cct, turn left into Edinburgh Ave, right into Marcus Clark St, left into McCoy Cct and cross Liversidge St into Garran Rd.

To catch the bus from the City Interchange to the ANU, take bus 3. It stops at various points along Lennox Crossing, Liversidge St, Garran Rd and Daley Rd and returns along the same route. Information about bus timetables is available at Action Bus Services. The broken red line on the large campus map indicates the bus route, and the red dots the bus stops.
