The Genealogical Society of Victoria is located in the heart of the city of Melbourne which makes it a very easy location to reach via public transport. Some members and visitors however do need to drive to the city. The other week one of our members was charged a large amount to park her car within reasonable distance of the Society's premises.
One nearby carpark has a very reasonable rate for weekends and it seems that their Early Bird weekday rate is also very good. As at April 2014 if you arrive between 7.00 am and 10.00 am, and depart after 2.00 pm, the Early Bird rate is $12.00 - considerably cheaper than our member had paid.
This is the Flindersgate car park at 172-192 Flinders Street. The Flinders Lane entrance is about the same distance east of Swanston Street as the rear entrance to the GSV is west of Swanston Street.
Do you know of a better option close to the GSV? There appear to be some others in Flinders Street also offering good Early Bird rates - let us know if you find one you'd recommend.
