How it works
Newtown parking information
Known as the Hogwarts of downunder, the university is not just a place for academia but also a key tourist hotspot.
Street parking is extremely limited but if you’re lucky, you might be able to park in one of the quieter streets on the Newtown side of campus.
Casual parking on-campus at either the Camperdown or Darlington campus costs $4 per hour or $24 per day. Most people parking here have paid for a yearly permit so you will be hard pressed to find a spot after 8am.
Parking is available at Broadway Shopping Centre. The first 2 hours are free and then its $6.50 per hour for every subsequent hour after that. Students can get a student discount of a flat $20 per day rate from Monday to Friday. This discount only applies if you park on levels 3A and 4 in the North car park.
The cheapest option is to park with Share with Oscar – spots around Redfern are available from just $1.85 per hour. Book here.
Parking in Broadway Shopping Centre is free after 6pm.
If you are heading into uni, you can either catch a train to Redfern and then walk to campus. The walk takes about 10 minutes from the station.
Alternatively you can catch a bus to Broadway or City Road from several points in the city.
