Parking & Public Transport

FREE Parking in Richmond

With over 200 public car parks available in Richmond CBD, there are lots of options. Do check the time restrictions as enforcement does apply.

Another 1000 3 hour carparks are available within the Mall and Upper Queen St parking areas. Remember these are monitored by Wilsons carpark enforcement.

Please respect the needs of others by not parking longer than the time limit and avoid an unwelcome fine.

Payment of parking fines can be made to the Cashier at any Council Office.
