With over 1,100 athletes competing, and a beautiful spectating environment, the Head of the River is the most attended school sporting event in South Australia. It draws a crowd. A big crowd.
There is limited parking on Military Road and parking is restricted in the side streets. Take care to look at the permanent and temporary parking control signage as Council Rangers will be vigilant.

A free public car parking with a shuttle bus service is available from:

  • West Lakes Shore Park corner Military Road and Edwin Street
  • Mirani Court

A shuttle bus service will run continuously from 7.15am to 1.45 pm between the West Lakes Shore Park car park and the Regatta Main Entrance. Other free public car parks are located at Towpath Reserve and Tennyson Dunes South (as these parks are within a reasonable walking distance the shuttle bus will not be available). There is no parking on Grange Reserve.
