TEMPORARY ACCESS CHANGES

Our Talavera Road car park entry/exit is temporarily closed whilst works are conducted in that area. We expect this area to reopen at the end of November 2023. Please follow the signs to alternative entry and exit routes. 


RATES 

The availability of free parking at the Macquarie Centre is limited to 3-hours only (excluding Express Car Park).


A licence plate recognition system captures and records the time of entry for each car and assigns this entry time to the car registration. Where a car exits and then re-enters the car park within 1-hour, additional parking charges apply (for the duration of the total time parked in the car park, from the time of the first recorded entry).
