Mermaid Beach parking

Some streets in Mermaid Beach fall within the Central Traffic Area, which is part of our Traffic Area and Parking Permit Scheme. The following parking management measures apply:

  • three-hour Traffic Area (3P) Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm (except as signed)
  • no restrictions on weekends and public holidays
  • if a parking sign does not state the days it applies, parking is managed every day including public holidays.

Parking time limits apply on every street within the Traffic Area. Signs show where Traffic Areas start and end and describe the days and times that time-limited parking applies.

Not all streets within a Traffic Area are signed. You are responsible for checking whether you are parking within a Traffic Area and complying with its time limits.

You cannot move your car to a different spot within this timed parking Traffic Area and continue to park there.

If you do not move your car entirely out of the timed parking area after the designated time limit has expired, you may be subject to a parking fine.
