Accessible parking

Accessible parking for people with disabilities is available throughout the city. Disability parking permit holders must display a valid permit inside the vehicle on the lower left hand corner of the front windscreen, with the permit number and expiry date clearly visible from the outside of the vehicle. Interstate and overseas permits are also accepted.

A permit must only be displayed when the permit holder is using the accessible parking space and the permit holder is entering or exiting the vehicle.

Disability parking permits

To apply for a disability parking permit visit the Queensland Government website or call 13 23 80.

Metered parking fees

Holders of a valid disability parking permit are exempt from metered parking fees in the City’s paid parking areas under the conditions set out by the Queensland Government:

  • where the time limit specified by a parking sign is less than 30 minutes, parking will be allowed for up to 30 minutes
  • where the time limit specified by a parking sign is 30 minutes or more, parking will be allowed for an unlimited amount of time.
