NB: Charlestown Bowling Club is not train friendly. Best travel option is by car.
The entrance to the CBC car park is off Ferris Street but MUST be approached from the Bowling Club side of Ferris Street. If you approach from the football oval side you have to drive around the block to get to the other side.
If coming from the north, through Charlestown on the highway, turn at the lights at the end of the football oval onto Lincoln Street and bear right onto Ferris towards Charlestown Square. If approaching from the south on the highway, Lincoln St is on your left between the Rotary Park and the football oval.
If approaching from the back of Charlestown Square, which is Canberra St but turns into Patricia Avenue at the back of the Bowling Club, turn off Patricia onto Lincoln at the roundabout, go past the CBC main entrance and turn left onto Ferris towards Charlestown Square.
The parking lot entrance is about 30m from the turn.
Anyone who is willing to make the trip by train would have to alight at Cardiff station and bus/cab to Charlestown (6km trip) but be wary of the 10am start.
