Parking price hike

05 Dec 2013

Parking price hike Image

Parking prices in Docklands are on the rise, with almost every off-street parking spot in Docklands raising its rates since last year.

An increasing demand for car parks outweighing the current supply is believed to be the reason for the growing prices.

The most expensive daily rate for parking in Docklands is at the rear of 717 Bourke St (Channel 9) which will set you back a maximum of $52 per day, rising from a daily maximum rate of $49 last year.

It’s closely followed by Exo, which opened this year and has a maximum daily price of $45.

Spencer Outlet Centre is not far behind, charging a maximum of $38 per day.  Etihad Stadium is also pricey, with a daily maximum of $35, jumping from $29 last year.

For people making quick visits to Docklands, just one hour of parking at the stadium will set you back $15.

Elsewhere in Docklands, including Harbour Town, Aquavista, development sites in NewQuay and at Lorimer St, you can park for an hour for as little as $2 or $3.

The cheapest all-day parking in Docklands is $8 and can be found at 86 Lorimer St (for visitors of residents).

Although it has risen from $6 to $10 per day, Harbour Town is also still on the cheap side.

Digital Harbour also offers good value, maintaining its $10 flat rate for all day parking and offering 200 spaces.

Central Pier parking rates have also remained stable with casual parking for $12 (with patrons required to be out by 4 pm) and a valet car service after 4pm for $20 between Monday and Thursday and $30 from Friday to Sunday.

For those who make it into Docklands on time there are some good deals to be found in early-bird parking.

The cheapest is at Aquavista where the early-bird deal is $8. If you’re early enough you can park for $14 at the World Trade Centre, at the rear of 737 Bourke St for $15 at Etihad for  $16, at

Watergate for $19, at Exo for $18 and at NAB and the back of 700 Collins St for $21.

Docklands Chamber of Commerce president Joh Maxwell said parking was a challenge not only in Docklands but throughout the city.

Mrs Maxwell encouraged visitors to plan ahead and to take advantage of the many public transport, walking and cycling links throughout Docklands.

For a comprehensive guide to parking in Docklands pick up a copy of the 2014 Docklands Directory which is being distributed to all residences and businesses in Docklands this month.
