Newtown parking information

Known as the Hogwarts of downunder, the university is not just a place for academia but also a key tourist hotspot.

On-street parking
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.
Off-street parking
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.

Monthly parking in Newtown

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 Sydney CBD. If you’re looking for a secure and undercover space with unlimited parking access to your spot, then you’re in the right place!

Check out our range of cheap monthly parking options here.
