Youthworks College is easy to get to by public transport, a 15 minute walk from either Newtown or Redfern Station. Street parking around Youthworks College is difficult. The parking on Carillon Avenue tends to be 2 hours, ticketed and regularly patrolled by ticket inspectors. But parking can be found if you are willing to drive around the backstreets.
