Whilst there is so much to see and do in the CBD, Brisbane is notorious for expensive parking. As the fifth most expensive city in the world for parking, Brisbane drivers pay over $31 on average to park in Brisbane CBD for just an hour according to an RACQ study.

Whether you’re heading into the city for work, a quick meeting, dinner or shopping, it is important to know which parking options work best for you. Please keep reading to find out where to park your car and where to access the best parking deals across Brisbane CBD.

Parking for under 1 hour – For a quick errand

If you need to pop in for just 30 min, council car parks such as the King George Square Car Park and the Wickham Terrace Car Park costs just $5 for the first 20 minutes or $10 for the first 30 min. For the first hour, the cost jumps up to $18. At this point, we recommend opting for a flat daily rate with Oscar that will provide you with the flexibility to leave. See below.

Parking for under 2 hours – For a quick meeting

If you’re lucky enough to find a spot on the street, street parking is available for $5/hour. However, most streets have a 2 hour time limit on weekdays from 7am to 6pm and on Saturdays (7am to midday), so make sure you don’t exceed these time limits to avoid getting a ticket.

If this isn’t an option, off-street parking is the next feasible option. Car parks such as the Myer Centre Car Park charge $43 for the first 2 hours. We understand that this can be quite expensive, so instead we recommend a more affordable parking option. You can book parking via Share with Oscar for only $24/day flat rate!

Parking for work

Maybe you are required to drive into Brisbane CBD on a regular basis due to work. Finding parking at a good rate can sometimes be quite the challenging task, but we’re here to help you navigate the situation. You can opt for finding daily parking at the diverse car parks located in Brisbane City or you could decide to get a monthly pass, if you visit the CBD on the daily.

Council car parks, King George Square Car Park and the Wickham Terrace Car Park, offer all day rates at $35 and $18 with the early bird discount. These car parks also have monthly passes available, valued at $410 per month. In the next section you can find the standard all day rates for privately owned car parks. These also offer monthly deals, but you will have to contact them directly to find out more about their rates.

Most affordable options to park all day in Brisbane CBD:

Another option available for all day parking in Brisbane CBD is to book parking at privately owned car parks. Parking over 5 hours normally costs around $84; however, these sites do offer a significant discount when pre-booking via their websites. When booking online, you could expect paying around $40 for all day parking.

Most car park operators also provide a cheaper rate via their “early bird” parking. This means that you will have fixed entry and exit times; typically with entry before 9am and exit before 5pm. You can expect to pay an average of $35 if you drive up and $29 if you pre-book via their website. If you are on a regular schedule, these early bird rates might work for you. Share with Oscar offers early bird rates, without the limitations.

You can also choose to book all day parking at the two Council-owned car parks in Brisbane City. King George Square Car Park and the Wickham Terrace Car Park, offer all day rates at $35 and $18 with the early bird discount. These car parks also have monthly passes available, valued at $410 per month.

Evening and weekend parking

Fortunately, there are lots of options available for cheap evening and weekend parking across Brisbane CBD. Weekend parking is available in council car parks from $5 for 4 hours, $10 for under 8 hours or $15 for more than 8 hours. Evening parking is available for a flat $5 on evenings.

Otherwise, find weekend and evening rates starting at a flat $10/day on Share with Oscar (book here).

Overnight parking

Overnight parking can be very expensive so it’s extremely important to book in advance. You can pre-book overnight parking in key Brisbane City locations for as low as $30.

This is a great option for anyone who is staying at a hotel in the city or wanting to leave their vehicle overnight.

Monthly parking in Brisbane CBD

You may prefer to lock in a permanent parking spot and save yourself the trouble of having to think about parking every day. Arranging monthly parking (whether it’s 24/7, just Monday to Friday, or for a few days a week) is also something Share with Oscar can help with. Monthly parking is also generally cheaper than booking daily as you are locking yourself in for the month.

Share with Oscar now also offers monthly parking across Brisbane City. If you’re looking for a secure and undercover space with unlimited parking access to your spot, then you’re in the right place!

Starting from $300/month, we have plenty of options for you. Check out our monthly parking deals below:
