You can find The Commons Street Feast in Commonwealth Park, just outside of 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, twenty minutes on the way back after some solid feasting. You can also hitch a ride with ACTION Busses from the city and be sinking back a burger within ten minutes at Commonwealth Park .
There is limited parking spaces at the venue, with a lot more spots available across the footbridge in the city.
Commonwealth Park has never tasted so good.
There’s limited parking at Acton Park and Commonwealth Park, but there is a range of other parking choices available that are a walking distance from The Commons. These include the Parliamentary Triangle, London Circuit, Canberra Centre, National Convention Centre and Canberra Institute of Technology car parks.
You can see the locations of each of these below in our Google Map, along with the walking routes.
Where parking fees do apply, they can be paid using the Parkmobile app, credit cards or coins.
Please ensure you use allocated legal parking spaces when coming to The Commons. Let the parking inspectors focus on grabbing a burger, rather then giving you a ticket.
