Best Parking around Sydney Chinatown

Avatar

Situated right in the heart of Sydney’s Chinatown is Haymarket HQ which is home to early-stage companies and businesses that are looking to expand into the Asian market.

Despite being only 10 minutes away from Central and Town Hall, and a few metres from the Light Rail, most people find driving into Chinatown an arduous undertaking.

Being at the core of one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions has its drawbacks when it comes to traffic congestion which is why getting to and around Chinatown (and the CBD in general) is best via public transport.

If you really can’t avoid driving then keep reading for the best places to park when visiting Haymarket HQ.

Finding parking along the bustling streets of Sydney’s CBD is often pricey, difficult, and confusing. Only about a quarter of the city’s on-street parking is metered pay parking with rates depending on the location and the time you are parking there.

The City of Sydney offers free 15-minute parking in main street retail areas outside the city area. Just keep an eye out for the signage outlining this option and press a button marked ‘1/4 P free with ticket’, then place the ticket on your dashboard.

You can find a map of parking meters around the city here with information on what hours they operate, how much they cost, and what types of payment they accept.

Wilson & Secure are the two primary providers for private parking in Sydney. These companies maintain a safe place to leave your car with security patrols and other measures to help make sure they’re kept protected, usually at a premium rate. Fret not because they offer discounts if you enter a car park before a certain time in the morning.

The Parkopedia website lets you search for parking options based on location. This handy database lists prices, mobility options, the number of spaces available, the early-bird, and night special rates. It also categorises parking spaces by distance, helping you find the best choice based on your budget and where you need to get to.

The best feature of this website is that it shows real-time parking availability. It displays all available options from street parking, car parks, and private spaces. Where applicable, it also allows you to book and pay for your parking space online.

Traffic congestion around the dense centre along with costly parking rates makes driving to work much less favoured against trains, buses, trams, and ferries. So we generally recommend commuting rather than getting caught in traffic jams for ages, especially during rush hour. In any case, it’s best to keep this article handy if you ever find yourself driving through Chinatown.

Now that we’ve got your parking needs covered feel free to stop by for a visit!
