Travel to ECU’s Joondalup campus via the Perth Underground Station taking the Butler train line to Joondalup Station. Once you arrive at the Joondalup Station, walk or take the bus to ECU campus.
Walking at a normal pace, it takes 20-25 minutes to walk from Joondalup Station to the campus.
Take the free Red* CAT bus that departs from Stand 8 at Joondalup Station. Get off at Stop 3 ‘University Drive’ and walk across campus to the Library building (Building 31).
*The Red CAT does not operate on the weekend or on public holidays.
The Yellow CAT operates during semester from 6pm, Monday to Thursday.
The Blue CAT will also get to ECU but it goes in the opposite direction to the Red CAT.
On Saturday, there are no CAT buses so take the 465* bus from Joondalup Station, Stand 7 (Stop Number 17851) to Joondalup Drive (after Grand Boulevard, stop number 17781). Walk on to the campus and then to the Library building (Building 31).

See the CAT map: http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/timetablepdfs/Joondalup CAT Timetable 205 20170219.pdf and the Transperth website http://www.transperth.wa.gov.au/ for information about timetables, routes, and pricing.
The Joondalup campus is at the intersection of Joondalup Drive and Grand Boulevard. If travelling to ECU via the Mitchell Freeway, take the Hodges Drive exit.
During semester the car parks and roads around the campus are busy, so leave enough time to drive to campus and find a parking bay. There is visitor parking in green bays outside Building 31. You need to purchase a ticket. It costs $1.50 per hour and can be paid with PayPass or coins. The machine does not give change so you need to have the correct money for about 4 hours – 3 hours for the test and some extra time for the security check and finding the room etc.
