Getting Here

Canvas House is situated just outside the CBD, in a perfect location away from the crowds of the inner city, but still easily accessible by public transport.

Hop off the 109 tram at Montague Street, and we’re just a short 5 minute stroll away. Look for the Golden Fleece Hotel on the corner of Buckhurst Street.. Alternatively, the nearest train station is a 10 minute walk to South Melbourne, if you’re coming from further afield.

There is parking available up and down Buckhurst Street. And if you aren’t planning to drive, consider catching a cab or Uber, as there are plenty about.

Contact us on 0478 056 390 or send an inquiry here. Let’s get this party started!
