There is plenty of free curbside parking available out the front of Alumina Street. We do have a loading zone for your convenience out the front of the entrance to FT Studio. This is strictly a loading zone only and all vehicles will need to be moved to curbside parking once you have unloaded for your booking.
Food Establishments Nearby
With Beard being mainly an industrial area, there are not many food options to choose from nearby. Deb’s Tuckerbox is available Monday to Friday from 8am to 2pm and is situated within walking distance at the entrance to Beard. If you are after further food options, we suggest you drive into Queanbeyan or Fyshwick to have more options. We do however, have our own kitchen facilities that you are welcome to use. Our kitchen includes a refrigerator, microwave, kettle, nespresso machine and a dishwasher.
Getting to and from Beard via public transport is a little complex. As there are no direct buses that stop at Beard, you can either catch a bus to Fyshwick (best to Canberra Outlet Centre or the Park and Ride Fyshwick) and then another to Queanbeyan to then walk 12 minutes to FT Studio from Queanbeyan or you can catch a bus to the Canberra Outlet Centre in Fyshwick or Park and Ride Fyshwick to then walk 50 minutes to the studio. We suggest you either get a lift to FT Studio with someone you know or organise an Uber instead as depending on where you live, it could be up to a 2 hour journey one way via public transport.
FT Studio is disability friendly and has no stairs inside the studio space, making it suitable for both wheelchairs and strollers. We do have an accessible disabled car space available, please contact our friendly team ahead of your booking to organise the use of this car space.
