Visitor parking permits

Visitor parking permits allow residents of the City of Adelaide, additional parking allowances for themselves or their guests when parking on-street.

What are the benefits?

  • When used in ticketed parking zones, you do not need to purchase a ticket.
  • They allow an additional two hours parking on top of the signed time limit.
  • Permits can also be used in two hour limit event parking zones, meaning you can park for four hours.
  • Booklets do not expire.


If you are a resident living in the CBD or North Adelaide and your property is located in the highlighted area of the below maps, you are eligible.

Please note, the additional parking allowance is to be used within the numbered area that corresponds with your property location. Also, the red lines on the map indicate areas that are not valid for parking whereas the green indicates shared streets between zone numbers.


The cost is $42.50 for a book of 25 vouchers with a maximum of two booklets purchased at any one time. This works out to $1.70 per voucher.

How to use them

  1. Fill in the required details, using a pen or marker.
  2. Tear the voucher from the booklet and place it on the passenger side of the vehicle.
    1. We recommend checking the voucher from the outside of your vehicle once you have closed the door, to ensure all details are clearly visible.
