How to get to the Centre and where to find Parking…
Greenwood Macquarie Park is located within the Goodman Corporate Park at 112 Talavera Road. The entrance to the complex is accessible via Herring Road – as you proceed along Herring Road, head towards the M2 on-ramp and the driveway to the Corporate Park is on your left. Once you enter, head to the left again and park in the outdoor parking spaces labeled ‘Greenwood’ that are available on the driveway to your right. (please see the map below for details)
