The closest railway stations are Hornsby and Waitara. Hornsby is accessible via both the main Northern Line and the North Shore Line. Waitara is on the North Shore Line. Transdev bus service #575 travels to Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital from these stations.

From Waitara Station – The distance to the Hospital is approximately 1.5km. Exit the station on the Alexandria Avenue side. This walk is reasonably flat.

Parking fees apply across the whole hospital in accordance with the NSW Health's hospital car parking fees policy and can be accessed here. Concessional rates apply to those who are eligible.

Disabled parking spaces are available in the multi-storey car park and also on Lowe and Palmerston Roads, though street parking availability is very limited.
