Public car parks


Council operates the following public car parks:

• George Street car park
• Wynne Ave car park
• Library & Community Hub car park
• Elizabeth Street car park
• Parnell Street car park
• Meryla Street car park

These car parks operate as a pay and display system whereby users are required to purchase and display a parking ticket from one of the parking meters within the car park and display it on their vehicles dash board. Ticket parking is in effect from 9am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, with no restrictions on Sunday. Parking tickets are charged at a rate of $3.60 per hour with a maximum fee of $25.00 per day.

Early Bird Parking

Early Bird parking is available in all of Council's metered car parks, excluding the Library and Community Hub car park, allowing users to park all day in a nominated parking bay for $6.00. ‘Early Bird’ parking bays can be identified via the signage and line marking with the exception of the George Street and Wynne Avenue car parks which allow ‘Early Bird’ parking in all parking bays on level B2 (George Street) and B1 (Wynne Avenue).

If a user parks in an Early Bird area, irrespective of what time they arrive or leave, they only need to purchase a ticket to the value of the early bird fee and display it on their vehicle for all day parking. The time on the ticket will only show the amount paid and will not show 6pm, as long as the user is parked in an early bird area, the all day parking will apply.

Parking is also available within private car parks including:

  • Westfield Shopping Centre (2 hours free parking)
  • Burwood Plaza (2 hours free parking)
  • Emerald Square car park (90 minutes free parking)
  • Wilsons John Street car park provides discount all-day parking rates.

Users of these car parks should review the operators fees and charges and terms and conditions prior to their use.
