Bike R​acks

The student bike racks are located behind the Trade Trading Centre. There are only two ways to enter and exit the bike racks so that riders remain out of the car park at all times.

Students are responsible for locking bikes securely to avoid theft.

  1. Students entering and exiting the bike racks from Hudson Street must use the single pedestrian gate beside the Aquatic Centre. Follow the pedestrian path around past the pool entrance and down the path between the Automotive Shed and Trade Training Centre.
  2. Enter the bike racks via the pedestrian gate on Thuringowa Drive near the basketball courts. Follow the path up to the bike racks.

The bike racks are locked at the beginning of the school day and are not unlocked again until 2pm Monday and 2.45pm Tuesday through Friday.​
