Location & getting here
NAPA Sydney is located on the Ground Floor at 2 Lincoln Street, Lane Cove West, NSW 2066.
NAPA Sydney is located off the main arterial road called Epping Road. When driving down Epping Road (either direction), look for the turn off onto Sam Johnson Way/Lane Cove West Business Park. Follow this road until you hit Sirius Road. Go straight through the intersection and you will find our building on the corner of Sirius and Lincoln Street. Easy!
We do recommend you drive to NAPA if possible, as the centre location has limited public transport options through the day.
Alternatively, you can consider taking bus transport (which will require a walk to and from the bus stop), or Taxi or Uber Share ride services. Please note if you are travelling with a stroller or Wheelchair, these options may make your journey a little longer and require more forward planning each day.
Parking is FREE at NAPA but it is in high demand! The car park is on street level in front of the building. NAPA car bays are marked with our logo. Alternatively, you can park in surrounding streets. Once you have parked, head into the main foyer entrance and we are located on the left hand side, just past the lifts.
With many families travelling some distance to visit us at NAPA, we have put together the below tips and travel suggestions to make your trip easier!

Lane Cove is located right in the centre of Sydney giving you many options for accommodation. Surrounding suburbs of Lane Cove, Macquarie Park, Chatswood, and North Ryde are the closest. Here you will find many options including hotels, serviced apartments, and air bnb. This side of the harbour you can also look at accommodation in the North Sydney area including Lavendar Bay, Milson’s Point, Cammeray, Neutral Bay and Woolstonecraft. All these areas are within a 15-20-minute drive of NAPA.
Alternatively, you can opt for the Sydney CBD or other areas such as Birchgrove, Balmain, Rozelle, Drummoyne, Gordon, Lindfield, or Killara. These areas are between 20-30 minutes’ drive from the clinic.
We recommend you look carefully at the options to ensure that they meet the needs of your child. Letting them know in advance that you are travelling with a disabled child may help them reserve the most appropriate room for your family’s needs. It is also worthwhile to check that they have special parking, bath access and laundry facilities.
Our families have had great success in finding local options from the following websites:
