ACCO Docklands centre

ACCO Education Centre - Docklands (Melbourne CBD)

ACCO administration is based within the Boyd Building at 1109 / 5 Caravel Lane, Docklands.

Our Docklands part time classroom: See photos of workshop in progress.

See below photographs of the Boyd building and a location map.

We use several venues in Docklands for meetings and small group discussions.

Group size is limited. ACCO prefers small group workshop education that ensures interaction and an the learning opportunity are maximized.

Meals do not take place in our rooms but in the restaurants in the nearby precincts.

Train : We are 15 minutes’ walk from Southern Cross Station. Rural and metropolitan services operate from this, - Melbourne's central train hub.
Air: From Melbourne Airport, the Skybus service will take you right to Southern Cross station with free connections to your hotel.
We recommend parking at the Harbour Town East Carp Park which is just north of the Boyd Building. See map below. All day parking here is $12 and under cover. It is a short walk south down Waterfront Way and then turn left at Caravel Lane.
All trams within Docklands and the Central Business District area are free !
There is the Melbourne FREE city circle tram which service has a stop within 100 metres of the foyer of the Boyd building. This service does not start early enough to get to Docklands workshops.
There are also the two full service tram routes stop within 100 metres of the Boyd building. Tram 70 runs along Flinders Street before heading to Docklands. Tram 86 runs along Bourke Street before skirting around Etihad Stadium to Docklands. These trams are now also free if you confine your trip to Docklands and the CBD. There are maps at every tram stop to help. These tram routes start well before the workshops start and continue into the night.
Most of our registrants choose to stay at the Sebel Hotel Docklands as they are located adjacent to our centre. However some delegates prefer to stay at less expensive alternatives and walk a little further. Given that all CBD trams to Docklands are free (see above) you can stay at any CBD hotel and get to the Boyd building with a free tram that will be at the most two block from your hotel.
There are a host of restaurants within two minutes’ walk. Here are some choices

 Driving to our venue suggestions

We suggest you park at Harbourtown Car Park adjacent to the ferris wheel. This is easy to access off the Citylink Tollway. Take the Footscray Road turn off and then turn right straight after the Costco store. Harbourtown car park is opposite the Southern Star ferris wheel and provides cheap undercover all day parking.
