The Route 57 (West Maribyrnong) tram goes there too. Get off at stop 32 on Epsom Rd.

And what's not the best way to get there? By car.

If you do decide to drive, there is only limited parking via Gate 7 on Leonards Crescent. Cost: $20 per vehicle.

Once that fills up, you'll have to walk at least 1km from the Flemington Racecourse car park (access via Racecourse road). Cost: $25 per vehicle.
