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.
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.
South Bank Parking Guidance System
Visiting South Bank is now a lot easier thanks to the electronic guidance system. Signs at the car parks and major entry points to South Bank feature illuminated indicators showing the amount of space available at each car park - green indicates the amount of available parking, while red indicates the amount that is unavailable.
Signs displaying a simplified map of routes to the parking zones within the precinct are located at:
- Grey Street, south of William Jolly Bridge
- Victoria Bridge outbound near QPAC
- Vulture Street, south of Grey Street
- Ernest Street inbound facing Gladstone Road
Signs at each car park and in other key areas around the precinct indicate availability of parking spaces at each venue.
Parking is also available at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre
