Getting to our Group Programs in East Melbourne
The Clarity Centre group programs are held at the Melbourne Centre for Mindfulness, 16 Trinity Place, East Melbourne. This former parish hall is almost adjacent to the magnificent Fitzroy Gardens- the perfect place for some mindful walking or just to sit under a tree, breathe and relax!
How do I get there?
The centre is conveniently located a short tram ride or a comfortable walk across the gardens from Melbourne's CBD.
Trinity Place is a small cobblestone laneway tucked behind, and parallel to, Clarendon St, between George and Hotham Streets, behind the Pullman Hotel (formerly the Hilton).
The hall has a disabled access entrance on the north side of the building, and we will be upgrading the internal amenities very soon to improve wheelchair accessibility. Several disabled car parking spots are located in Hotham St at the top of the laneway. There is also a 15 minute drop off/pick up point right out the front in Trinity Place. Please contact us to let us know how we can make the centre more accessible for you.
Public Transport/ Pedal Power
Whenever possible we strongly encourage members of the Clarity Centre community to make use of the abundant public transport options or even pedal power! You can lock up your bikes right outside the centre.
