2021 Valentine’s Concert – event information

Transport and Parking

The Valentine’s Concert is held on the picturesque grounds of the Joondalup Resort accessible from Country Club Boulevard, Connolly. As access to the venue is limited patrons are encouraged where possible to walk, carpool or utilise the shuttle bus service. See Accessible event information for accessible transport and parking information.

Patrons driving to the event should allow additional time to access the venue as delays should be expected due to increased traffic in and around the Joondalup Resort before and after the event.

To access the event site all vehicles will be directed by traffic management to drive down Country Club Boulevard, left onto Spyglass Grove before turning into the Country Club car park. At this point traffic controllers and signage will direct drivers to event parking, drop-off/pick-up points, ACROD and accessible parking locations.

Event parking is available on the grounds of the Joondalup Country Club, patrons can follow direction of traffic controllers and signage to access event parking.
