Is parking easy in Northcote?

There is plenty of unlimited, free parking at the northern end of the shopping strip, going up the hill, and in the side streets. Be careful of the clearway on the western side of High St (heading away from the city) between 4.30–6pm!

Where can I park in the city?

There is plenty of on-street meter parking at in the area immediately surrounding the school (Lt. Lonsdale St). It is generally quite easy to get a park after business hours. There is also a commercial carpark (Wilson Parking) directly opposite.

Is it safe to walk around in that area at night?

Northcote is an extremely safe suburb to walk around – if anything: you're most likely to bump into a pram or shopping trolly full of organic veggies! You should have no issues, even in the side streets – but as always, be aware of your surroundings.

Melbourne CBD area has a few problems common to larger cities: eg. homelessness, drug / alcohol abuse - however the areas around El Patio are very well lit and fairly busy most of the time. We've never had an incident involving one of our students or anyone coming to or from El Patio in the CBD. 

Can I catch up a class in the other centre?

Absolutely! Class swaps are not limited to each centre. Simply arrange your swap at reception or via email.

Do you have wheelchair access?

Unfortunately we do not have wheelchair access in our CBD centre, as the school is on level 2 and the building has no lift. The Northcote centre has one small step out at the entrance, but is on the ground level.

Can you do classes in our office / home?

Yes we can! External delivery of Private Classes is possible, and we can provide you a quote if you provide the following details:

  • Where the classes are to be held 
  • How many students 
  • How many hours over how many weeks
  • What is the goal of the classes
