Council parking meters to be switched back on to support Brisbane businesses

Brisbane City Council wishes to advise all on-street parking meters will return to normal operation from 7am Monday 18 May, after more than one month of free and reduced-cost parking to assist essential workers during coronavirus crisis.

Parking fees at the two Council-owned car parks at King George Square and Wickham Terrace will also return to normal.

A $5 per four-hour parking fee will be introduced on weekends to encourage a turnover of car parks and more opportunities to visit the city to take advantage of the re-opening or shops and services.

While coin payment will be available, customers are urged to make cashless payment using card or the CellOPark Australia app.

To download the free CellOPark app, visit and search ‘CellOPark’.

Council encourages all residents to continue to practice safe social distancing and hygiene while using Council facilities.  

As updates are available, they will be included on Council’s website. For more information visit Council's website  or phone Council on 07 3403 8888. 

Brisbane City Council is working closely with the Australian Government and Queensland Health and are following their expert health advice to help minimise the transmission of coronavirus.
