2020 AFL Season at Optus Stadium

Burswood Park Board would like to advise that during the 2020 AFL Premiership Season, the public car park on Camfield Drive will be closed to the public and open only to buses on various dates.

There will also be temporary road closures from Great Eastern Highway onto Resort Drive for a least two (2) hours prior to the start of each match. Entrance to Burswood Park and Crown Resorts will be via Bolton Avenue and Victoria Park Drive ONLY.

Road closures will be managed through Main Roads WA and all roads will re-open one hour after each match ends. You are strongly encouraged to utilise public transport as much as possible during event days.



Park patrons are advised that fencing along the east and west sides of Camfield Drive is now in place to assist with access to Optus Stadium on major event days. Please note that during events, the only access to Optus Stadium from Crown Resorts will be via the crossover on Camfield Drive at the Watersports Association/Burswood on Swan, and the crossover on the western end of Roger Mackay Drive.

In the interests of not disturbing the re-vegetation projects on both sides of Camfield Drive, please do not attempt to climb the fences, follow the signs, stick to the paths and stay off the garden beds.


With the Matagarup Bridge Climb and Zip-line officially coming to Burswood peninsula, Main Roads is currently undertaking infrastructure works to install the Skyview platform in the central bridge arches, a zip-line platform and cables midway up the arches, plus the zip-line landing platform within Burswood Park. New steel, glass and cables are required to operate the adventure climb and zip-line and works will be undertaken on and around Matagarup Bridge from 29 June to October.

Entry to the Camfield car park and in the area between the car park and the bridge including the sensory playground will be restricted between 6am and 11am each week day. No works will occur on event days.

From mid-July, walkway access on Matagarup Bridge will be reduced from nine to three metres using temporary protected walkways. The walkways are the same as those used during arch painting when the bridge was constructed and resemble a tunnel.

Matagarup Bridge closures will be required for safety, while steel is lifted from the bridge deck overhead into the bridge arches. Details for these week day closures are being finalised.

For the latest information, be sure to check out Main Roads.


All Burswood Park patrons are advised that car parking at two of Burswood Park’s six car parking areas, being the car parks adjacent to the children’s playground and to the Telethon Community Cinemas on Resort Drive, will be restricted to a maximum period of four (4) hours from 8am to 4pm. 

The parking restrictions are necessary to provide safe, efficient and equitable access for all park visitors, and to reduce the frequency of all-day parking often used by city commuters.

Parking within the park will remain free-of-charge. Parking signs (marked 4P) will be in place to remind park patrons of the parking conditions.

The restrictions will be enforced under Burswood Park Board parking by-laws. Burswood Park Board reserves the right to issue infringements for cars parked longer than the maximum period.
