Find the best CBD parking in Melbourne

We love the convenience of driving our cars, but having to find a parking space in the Melbourne CBD? Oh, the headache!

Obviously, space is at a premium in Melbourne’s busy and crowded inner city area, and thus trying to find a park that’s safe, convenient and affordable can be stressful, confusing and frustrating.

No one wants to spend a fortune on car parking, particularly if you find yourself needing to park regularly in the Melbourne CBD. And no one wants to have to park miles away from their destination either. It can certainly be a challenge to find suitable parking near your CBD destination, as on street parking fills up very quickly.

You’ll often find yourself cutting laps around the area looking for a free park, or stalking someone hoping to nab their spot.

As well, on street parking in Melbourne’s CBD usually has a limit of one hour, which for many of us, is nowhere near long enough. It’s fine if you’re just popping in to pick up something quickly (and are willing to circle the area in order to find a nearby park), but if you’re working in the city or doing something that will take longer than an hour, it’s absolutely no use.

You can face large fines is you leave your car parked longer than the allotted time. And let’s face it, who wants to spend all day moving their car around from park to park – that’s on the off chance that you can find one nearby!

Luckily, there are better solutions for those of us who need longer-term or more readily available CBD parking. The City of Melbourne offers a number of commercial car park locations in the CBD, providing options for short-term parking in secure and convenient locations.

Using a commercial carpark makes parking in Melbourne quick, easy and safe – and isn’t that something we all want?

Parking off-street in Melbourne’s CBD can cost anywhere from $18 – $65 plus per day, depending on the location of the car park, the security level and the amenities available nearby. To find a car park near your destination or workplace, look on websites such as Parkhound or Parkopedia.
