  • Hi, we’re coming to see Richard Stubbs on Saturday night. We require disability parking – one of our group is in an electric wheelchair (quadriplegic).

    Can you please confirm availability, pricing and if we need to book the spot in advance.


    • Hi David,

      Here is a map with all the disability parking areas in the CBD. Commercial car parks which have assistance and/or designated parking places for people with disabilities are marked on the map by a red and white parking symbol.

      Bookings are generally not required for these spaces, however you might want to choose a location from the map that suits you (there seem to be two on Flinder’s Lane right near the Town Hall), Google their number and give them a call to confirm. Pricing varies from location to location. However you can typically find a flat “Weekend” rate on a Saturday evening for around $10-$15.

      Kind regards,
