The main campus of the WCH is located at 72 King William Road North Adelaide, approximately one kilometre from the city.
There are car parks and entrances to the Hospital on Kermode Street and the corner of Brougham Place and Sir Edwin Smith Avenue.
The Women’s and Children’s Hospital has two public car parks, the Medical Centre Car Park (hourly rate) which is situated in Kermode Street and the Rogerson Car Park (flat rate for up to 48 hours) which is accessed from Brougham Place.
Medical Centre Car Park - (short-term parking) The car park entrance is from Kermode Street. Take a ticket from the ticket machine on arrival and pay at the automated pay station before returning to your car.
Medical Centre Car Park - (long-term parking) Weekly tickets can be purchased at the Transport Services Department Office in the car park 8.30am – 4.30pm weekdays, excluding public holidays. The ticket is valid for seven days, and you can enter and exit as often as you wish from 6am –10.30pm weekdays, and 6am – 9pm weekends. When the car park is full, you will have to wait in line until a space becomes available. You may leave your car in the car park overnight.
Rogerson Car Park (flat rate) - The car park entrance is from Brougham Place, via the Emergency Department access ramps. This car park is available (pay before you enter) with maximum continuous parking for two days. Hours of operation are 6.30am to 11pm (entry). Exit 24 hours.
There are 15-minute ‘patient loading areas’ located at the main Kermode Street and Queen Victoria Building (Brougham Place) entrances.
One and two hour parking spaces are also available in the streets around the hospital. Parking restrictions, including two-hour event parking limits, will be in place around the hospital on Adelaide Oval event days. These areas are inspected regularly. To avoid a fine, try to allow sufficient time for your appointment.
Through the SA WCH Patient Assisted Transport Scheme (PATS) eligible country patients and their escort may be reimbursed for some travel and accommodation costs. This applies when SA families need to travel more than 100 kilometres (each way) to receive specialist medical treatment not available at a closer centre.
