In News

We’re now operating in our new Centre located at the Deakin University Waurn Ponds campus. We understand there will be an adjustment period as visitors will be travelling to Waurn Ponds instead of Central Geelong.

We’ve put together a guide on how to find our new Centre whether travelling by car, bus or train. If you have any further suggestions please let us know on info@kidsplus.org.au.

Our new address is:

Building LX Deakin University 75 Pigdons Road, Waurn Ponds VIC 3216. We are located at the first roundabout when entering the campus via Nicol Drive N (Gate 2) off Pigdons Rd.

Parking:

We have 10 parking spaces for clients at our new Centre. These parks are adjacent to our Centre and free for Kids Plus clients. Please see reception about a KPF permit to display on your car dashboard.

If these parks are full, there is parking around the campus. Disability parks will be free to park in around campus, however, general parking is paid. Payments at the campus are taken via the CellOPark Australia app or at the meter at the entrance of the campus. Please note the meter at the entrance only accepts card, not cash. We recommend downloading the CellOPark app before your first visit (you can download it for iPhone here and Android here). For a guide on how to use the app, see this document.

You can download a flyer with all of this information here.

Download the Deakin University campus map here. This map also shows other disability parking spaces across campus.

Additional Parking: 

Additional parking options can be found at the Epworth Hospital, which is next to the Deakin campus. There will be a considerable walk involved in getting across to the campus via the ‘Deakin Link’ pathway. You can see the start of this path via the Deakin map here (our building is labelled ‘LX’ on the map).

Public Transport: 

By train: The closest train station to our new Centre is Waurn Ponds train station. For a current train timetable please visit the V/Line website.

The station is approximately 3km from the Centre, however, there is a bus that will take you to the Deakin University Waurn Ponds campus (see details below).

By bus: Catch Bus Route 43 (Geelong station to Deakin University via Highton). This bus will stop at the Deakin University, Waurn Ponds campus. You can also catch Bus Route 41 (Geelong station to Deakin University via Grovedale) or Bus Route 42 (Geelong station to Deakin University via South Valley Road).

From the Waurn Ponds train station catch Bus Route 41 or Bus Route 42. Both of these bus routes stop at Deakin University, Waurn Ponds Campus.

The bus stop is located on Pigdons Rd out front of the university. You will then need to walk down Nicol Drive (Gate 2) until you see our Centre at the roundabout.
