Parking Rates

Q: Why are the parking rates increasing? 


Macquarie Centre is always looking to continuously improve the customer experience - by increasing our car parking rates this means we are able to invest in future developments and initiatives that will ensure a positive car park experience.

We understand that the availability and ease of parking is an important driver for customer satisfaction and as a result, we are always looking to invest in new initiatives and developments to ensure we continue to offer the best possible customer and car park experience.

The majority of shoppers won't be impacted as the 3 hour free period remains. Even with this small fee increase, Macquarie Centre remains the most affordable shopping centre car park option.
 

Q: Will I still get 3 hours free parking?


Yes. There is no change to the 3 hours free so the majority of shoppers won't be impacted. This is in line or better than what our major competitors offer.

Q: I am a member of staff at one of the retailers at Macquarie Centre, will these rates affect me?


No. As per the agreement between Macquarie Centre and retailers, staff members must apply for a staff car park pass to receive and benefit from the flat rate of $10 per entry per car.
 

Q: Will the rate changes affect the Express Parking Car Park?


Yes, please see the details of Express Parking below. Exit and re-entry to the Express car park within 1 hour (60 minutes) will incur additional parking charges.
