As the WA Mental Health Conference is being held on non-major event days, there will be plenty of free parking, as well as public transport options, easy taxi/rideshare access and bicycle racks for cyclists.
However, since being on a non-major event day public transport does not stop at the stadium's train or bus stations.
For those arriving by bus, the Red and Yellow Cat buses (free service) stop near the Matagarup Bridge, then you can enjoy a leisurely walk (8 minutes) across the bridge to Optus Stadium.
Distance to Optus Stadium from nearby train stations:
- Burswood - 4 minute drive, 17 minute walk
- East Perth - 6 minute drive, 20 minute walk
- Claisebrook - 5 minute drive, 25 minute walk

TAXI OR RIDESHARE
A dedicated taxi rank is located adjacent to Victoria Park Drive. Taxi or rideshare eg. Ola or Uber vehicles can pick up or drop off passengers in the Marlee Loop car park on non-event days.
WALKING OR CYCLING
Walkers and cyclists can venture over the Matagarup Bridge, a pedestrian bridge crossing over the Swan River from East Perth. Alternatively, the Burswood Peninsula path provides pedestrian and cycle access to the Stadium Park from all directions.
There are a range of footpaths to Optus Stadium and over 600 bike racks are located around the Stadium Park.
The Burswood Jetty provides an alternative transport option to access Optus Stadium and the surrounding precinct, allowing vessels to drop patrons directly to the Stadium Park.
The Little Ferry Co. stops daily at the Burswood Jetty
The jetty can be utilised for drop-offs and pick-ups from events, with a 15 minute time limit for all public and commercial users.
