Guide to parking at Central

Whether you’re visiting town or hitting up some of Sydney’s best restaurants, there are very few parking options in this part of the city. Your best bet is to plan ahead of time if you intend on driving.

On-street parking

If you’re lucky enough to find yourself a spot on the street, parking rates are reasonable if you only need to stay for up to 2 hours.

The City of Sydney has a map of the pricing of parking meters (see here.)
