Where's Randwick?

Light Rail construction is currently disrupting public transport access and parking arrangements.

Located on a large campus of hospitals in Randwick, it’s easy to feel a little lost. The information below helps you get around.

The Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick, is located in High Street, Randwick.

High Street has changed as stage one of construction of Randwick’s new Light Rail service has begun.

  • Emergency services access and emergency local access will be maintained to Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick’s Emergency Department at all times.
  • Ambulance access to the High Street Ambulance Bay will remain the same.
  • There will be two Emergency parking spaces within the construction staging area, located directly in front of the Emergency Department. A Transport for NSW Traffic Controller will be stationed in this area 24/7 to assist families requiring Emergency care.
  • There will also be additional short-term parking on Clara Street, adjacent to Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick’s Emergency Department, and Hospital Road.
