If you are traveling to IBAS by taxi, ask either to be dropped off at the out-patient drop off area - entry from Burgundy Street (see the Map)

If mobility is a problem and you are travelling to the Bowen Centre, ask the person you are visiting at IBAS whether you can park directly at the Bowen Centre and see our specific directions how to get there.  Be aware that parking at Bowen is very limited and involves sharp turns and tight parking bays.

A taxi can be ordered for your return journey either by the person you are visiting or by a specific phone located near the exit from Level 3 Harold Stokes Building (exit to the pedestrian bridge over Burgundy Street).

If you are participating in a research participant, please note that only some projects cover the cost of taxi fares to and from appointments.
