NAPA Centre Melbourne

Where is the Melbourne clinic?

The new Melbourne clinic is located in Forest Hill, in Melbourne’s East. It is situated in a lovely business park, surrounded by parks, trees and is easy to get to with Melbourne’s major roads including the M3 to the north and M1 to the south. The clinic is located on the corner of Burwood Highway and Springvale Road – two main roads that are easy to find. There is loads of free undercover parking located at the clinic that will give you direct access to our building. Directly in front of the clinic on Burwood Highway, you will also find a Tram stop on Tram Route 75 (which connects Vermonth South directly through to the city/docklands area).

The new clinic is as large and spacious as the current Sydney clinic. It features both open gym space and private treatment rooms for speech therapy, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. There are separate zones for CME/DMI therapy, sensory OT treatment rooms and zones and a specialist feeding area.

The parents room is bright and spacious and is the perfect spot for you to take a breather, have a bite to eat and catch up on your emails in between therapy sessions. There is plenty of undercover and disability parking available at the clinic, so getting to and from the clinic from your car will be easy!

There is a small café located within the complex (the next building over) that sells basic lunches (sandwiches and soups), sweets and pastries, drinks and coffee.

You can enter the complex from Burwood Highway and drive straight ahead, through the roundabout to the building marked 351 (you will see a white NAPA Logo on the front of this building). Please drive directly past this building (the boomgates should be open or open upon approach) and through to the car park at the rear ot ths building as that is where you will find the best, undercover parking for NAPA.
