Where is GAMSAT held in Melbourne? | Melbourne test centre location

If you want to know where is GAMSAT held in Melbourne, the test centre location is usually in either the Caulfield Racecourse or the Melbourne Showgrounds.

However the exact location isn't normally made public until you receive your official admissions ticket a couple of weeks before the test.

So if you need to make hotel reservations and want to be very near the test location it may be wise to hold off until the location has been confirmed.

Now let's look at the locations in more detail.

Caulfield Racecourse

This is located on Station Street, Caulfield East, Victoria 3145.

To arrive by train, trains depart regularly on the Frankston, Dandenong, Cranbourne and Pakenham lines from Flinders Street to Caulfield Station which is directly in front of the racecourse. The journey from the City takes approximately 15 minutes.

To arrive by tram catch a Route 3 or 3a tram from anywhere along Swanston Street and St. Kilda Road and get off at stop 56. The journey time is about 25 minutes.

To go by bus take the SmartBus Route 900 from either Monash University (Clayton) Stud Park Shopping Shopping Centre, Wellington Road or Chadstone Shopping Centre. The trip takes around 50 minutes.
