We have a small car park adjacent to our building accessible from Shadforth Lane, which is primarily for staff and volunteer usage. Additional parking is available at the Woolworths’ shopping precinct and on the surrounding streets, although local council parking charges apply.

On-street parking in Darwin

If you are using a disability parking permit within the Darwin municipality, your permit allows free on-street parking (where parking meters are installed) in any time-restricted area for twice the period indicated e.g. 3 hours extended to 6 hours. Once the free parking time has expired, normal parking restrictions apply i.e. paying for parking and time restrictions.

Vehicles displaying disability parking permits may park in an accessible parking bay in all City of Darwin off-street car parks all day, free of charge except for West Lane Carpark and Chinatown Carpark. Persons displaying a valid permit who park in an accessible parking bay in either West Lane Carpark or Chinatown Carpark may park for twice the time paid for. For more information, visit the City of Darwin website.
