Transport to Joondalup and Mt Lawley
Edith Cowan College (ECC) is located on ECU’s Mount Lawley and Joondalup campuses. The Mount Lawley campus is close to the Perth city centre (5 kms) and the Joondalup campus is approximately 25 kms from the city centre. Both campuses are easily accessible by public transport. Transperth operates public transport including buses, trains and ferries, within Perth and it's outlying areas. A free transit zone, with transport on Transperth buses and trains, is available every day on selected routes within the central city area.
