It's just 14 minutes by train from Perth to Murdoch Station. Rockingham Station is around 19 minutes from Murdoch Station and it's around 35 minutes from Murdoch to Mandurah Stations. There are plenty of buses from either Fremantle or Murdoch Station to the uni. Bus routes stop right outside the campus too.

If you're planning to attend Open Day using public transport you can plan your journey using the Transperth website.


We're only 15km from the Perth CBD and lots of parking will be available (space is not something we're short of).
