The Gabba (Gabba Traffic Area)

The Brisbane Cricket Ground, better known as ‘The Gabba’, is home to Australian Football League (AFL) and cricket in Brisbane. It is one of the most used stadiums in Brisbane and can draw crowds up to 42,000 people.

The Gabba Traffic Area was created to ensure street parking is available to residents living near The Gabba. If you live within the Gabba Traffic Area, you can apply for a parking permit.

The following parking restrictions apply to all on-street parking spaces within The Gabba Traffic Area:

  • two hour parking limit applies between 7am-7pm, Monday to Friday
  • 15 minute parking limit applies between 7am-10pm, on Gabba event days.

If a parking sign applies to a particular location, the days and times displayed on the sign override the Gabba Traffic Area parking restrictions.

All motorists can park in spaces signed ‘P No Limit’ for longer than these parking limits. Residents and visitors with a parking permit are exempt from the area-wide parking limits.

To help you identify if you’ve parked in The Gabba Traffic Area, look for the high-visibility traffic information information signs. The signs sit underneath street signs and complement signage located on roads leading into the area.

Due to parking limits in the area, Brisbane City Council recommends public transport to get to events. For information about getting to the Gabba, visit the Gabba and Translink websites.
