The Commons Street Feast is located on the shores of the beautiful Lake Burley Griffin in Commonwealth Park, just minutes from Canberra’s CBD.
The Commons is an easy walk from the city centre and will take you around fifteen minutes to get there on foot, and perhaps a little longer depending on your feasting ability! You can hitch a ride with Transport Canberra bus services from the city and be sinking back a burger within ten minutes at Commonwealth Park.
There are limited parking spaces at the venue, with a lot more spots available across the footbridge in the city.
