Getting to campus


The Carlisle campus is located within a densely populated residential suburb. The campus car park comes under the jurisdiction of the Town of Victoria Park parking by-laws. Rates and times for Council paid parking vary but in general it is $2.50 per hour. Please be aware that the Town of Victoria Park closely monitors parking around the campus and issue fines for vehicles that are illegally parked. If a fine is issued, South Metropolitan TAFE cannot have it withdrawn.

Students are not permitted to park their vehicles within the campus grounds or in nominated areas set aside for staff and visitors. South Metropolitan TAFE does not provide any student parking; however there is limited paid street parking in Bank, Somerset, Read, and Withnell Streets, and opposite the railway on Rutland Avenue. Check the area for parking advisory signs as restrictions do apply in some areas.

Parking for the neighbouring Aqualife facility is only able to be used by its pool and gym customers. Restrictions also apply for parking on street verges. It is recommended you only park on the side of a road in a legal parking bay. When parking, please consider the local residents and other road users. 

Public transport

It is highly recommended to use public transport as the campus is situated opposite Oats Street Bus/ Train Interchange on the Armadale railway line. Students can catch the train or use the Circle Bus Route from this station.

It is suggested you refer to the Transperth Infoline, Infocentres and website for more information. Timetables for local routes are also available from the campus Customer Service Centre.
