Rates & Guidelines

We use one type of parking meter - the Pay & Go meter.

All North Sydney meters accept payment by coin, credit card (Visa and MasterCard only) and mobile phone.

 

Meter Rates

In the North Sydney Council area, parking meter rates vary depending on the time of the day and the parking demand. Daytime parking hours are 8.30am - 6pm and evening parking hours are 6pm -12 midnight.

Data gathered from regular traffic studies and parking surveys have enabled Council to determine three "Parking Demand Areas" within the parking meter zones. The Parking Demand areas are:

  1. High - North Sydney CBD and Alfred Street South (Fitzroy Street to the Harbour Bridge)
  2. Medium - North Sydney CBD shoulder area; Crows Nest, St Leonards, Milsons Point and Kirribilli areas.
  3. Low  - Fringe areas.

Regulations and Guidelines

Before using a parking meter motorists should always check parking signposts located close to all meters to confirm pay parking hours in the area. Street signs take priority over parking information displayed on meters (for example, in the event of Special Event Clearways and road closures).

The following regulations outline the rules for parking in NSW

  1. The Australian Road Rules 2014
  2. The Road Transport (General) Regulation 2013 - parts 5-7
