Adelaide is a popular place to live, work and visit. To reduce congestion and ensure fair and equitable access to parking for all, the City of Adelaide has a variety of initiatives and options.

If you're driving into our beautiful city, Adelaide has the highest number of available parking spaces and the lowest parking fees of all Australian capital cities. We offer short and long-term parking facilities, both on-street and off-street.

Why not take advantage of all-day parking at our city UPark locations or download our Park Adelaide App for real time on-street availability.
