Overview - Parking

There are many options when it comes to parking in Darwin. Much of our CBD parking is managed through timed pay and park Monday to Friday, with FREE untimed parking in ALL zones on weekends and public holidays. 

Free Weekend Parking in the CBD!

Did you know?

Parking in the CBD is FREE all weekend?

As part of a 6 month trial, all city parking zones have unrestricted parking on  weekends and public holidays! This means you can park, enjoy brunch, and finish your shopping without having to worry about returning to your car in time.

When parking in the city centre on weekends, please only park in safe designated parking bays and be sure to check the parking signs to make sure you understand the conditions.
