Patrons in wheelchairs or who have difficulty walking can be set down at the designated drop off zones on Grey St (both southbound and northbound). The southbound drop off zone just outside QPAC is the best option for Lyric Theatre, Concert Hall and Cremorne Theatre performances.
There is also a PWD drop zone accessible on Russell Street, which is best for Playhouse performances. Although Russell St is currently closed to general traffic due to construction works, PWD drop off is still available via traffic control attendants.
Please be aware that the set down areas have limited capacity and we recommend you allow sufficient time for possible delays.
After dropping off in these zones, parking is then available in all car parks close to QPAC, see the map above for directions to access these options.
Parking for people with mobility difficulties is available in all car parks.
