Our car park operates 24/7 where parking can be paid for at the automatic pay station located adjacent to the car park, or on exit. You can pre-pay for the $12 flat rate for parking after 5pm.

  • For less than 30 minutes parking is free at all times.
  • Between 30 minutes and 3 hours, parking is $7 from 3am to 5pm daily.
  • Between 3 hours and 12 hours, parking is $9 from 3am daily.
  • For parking from 5pm the flat night rate is $12.
  • With only 148 car park spaces, we encourage patrons to plan their visit and consider alternatives such as public transport, taxi and rideshare services or cycling.  

    If you have a dinner or performance reservation, we encourage you to arrive 40-50 minutes early to give yourself enough time to find a park.
