Pre-Paid Parking at the Performing Arts Car Park

Take advantage of the pre-paid car parking service, which offers guaranteed, safe and convenient parking at the Performing Arts car park. Your pre-paid parking ticket will be issued with your theatre tickets and can be used even when the CAR PARK FULL sign is displayed. This facility is limited per performance, so we recommend you arrange your car parking when you book your ticket. Book your pre-paid parking on 136 246 or online. Please note, pre-paid parking tickets will only be available to purchase if you are booking more than 7 days prior to the performance.

You must present your car park ticket (the ticket or hard copy PDF for print@home tickets) upon entry into the car park. Mobile phone or emails are not accepted. We are unable to provide refunds for unused tickets or where the incorrect tickets are presented on entry.

Using Queensland Cultural Precinct Car Parks

Automatic Pay Stations
To enable free flow of traffic exiting after a performance, patrons are required to pay the parking fee at the automatic pay stations on entry to the Cultural Precinct, South Bank car parks.

The pay stations provide change in notes, and do not accept $100 notes.

Credit/Debit Cards (Visa, Mastercard)
Upon insertion of a credit card the $15 fee will be deducted, the card returned, receipts will be printed on request and the gate will then rise.

Peak Times
During peak times of pre-performances and events, the booths will be staffed for manual operation and to assist patrons with directions and information requirements. Staff will also be available in the event of pay station equipment failure. Unfortunately, staff will be unable to provide change for the car park.

Parking is also available at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and South Bank.
