Opening Hours: Operating between 8:00am – 8:00pm via Gate 3 (subject to change in high or low demand periods). Melbourne Showgrounds are unable to test on children under 5 years old.
The Victorian Department of Health (DoH) is managing a pop-up COVID-19 testing site at Melbourne Showgrounds.
The convenient COVID-19 testing site, accessible for vehicles only (excluding motorbikes), is designed to ensure our community can access safe and reliable testing facilities.
On some days the testing site will experience high demand and wait times are expected.
Should a high demand be received, on any given day the site may close early to safely service as many people as possible. We thank you for your patience and understanding while we work with the DoH to deliver this service.
