    DFO South Wharf is currently undergoing a redevelopment to its existing car park. A new multi-level car park is being built in response to the State Government’s approved plans to expand and develop the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre to help cater for the growing demand for multi-purpose meetings and event spaces.

    Upon the completion of the car park development there will be a total of 3170 customer car spaces available at DFO South Wharf in early 2017.
