The only entry and exit point for HC Melbourne Matches at MSC Parkville will be ENTRY B. This is the entry near the large roundabout as you come up Brens Drive.

You will not be able to access the outdoor hockey pitches if you come through Entry A. So, if you park around the back near this car park, you will need to walk around to Entry B to get in.
