There are several ways to get to the makerspace. We recommend the use of public transport or personal mobility devices like escooters, bicycles, etc. due to our inner city location. Our address is 146 Wickham St, Fortitude Valley, 4006. Our front door is next to Vietnam House - look for our blue signage.
We recommend that you use Google or Apple Maps and enter "Brisbane Makerspace" as your destination. Select public transport and you'll see the best route from a combination of train and bus options.
The closest train station is Fortitude Valley, which is a very short 5 minute walk. There are also lots of nearby bus stops with frequent services. If you can't use Apple or Google maps, we recommend the official Translink Journey Planner.
There are lots of free and unlimited motorbike parking spaces right at our backdoor! If you have a bike or moped, this is a great option.
There is limited on-site parking available to members only, as per our parking policy (very limited and often not available).
For members of the public, or members' guests, we recommend trying Little St (can often be full) or parking at Cathedral Place. This is just across the road and parking is only $5 after 5pm on weekdays, and capped at $10 on weekends.
Prices accurates as of 24/08/2022.
If you want a more price friendly option, there is street parking nearby, but it may be tricky to find depending on the time of day. There are a few spots around Little St, Gotha St, Agnes St, and Warren St that are free at certain times. Please check council signage to confirm.
We fall within the council's "Central Parking Area". This means that between 7am to 6pm Mon-Fri, and 7am to middday Sat, a 2 hour limit applies to all street parking that doesn't have a sign saying otherwise. Learn more on the council website here.
This means if you park somewhere without a sign specifying a time limit between those times, you may get fined for staying longer than 2 hours! Please contact the council or our volunteers if you need assistance with understanding this.
