Inner city motorcycle parking

Motorcycles and scooters have become a popular transport choice for commuters travelling to Brisbane’s inner city. To help cater for the demand, Brisbane City Council has installed over 600 additional new motorcycle parking spaces, delivering over its 2012 commitment to install 400 new spaces across the city by 2016.

Impacts to motorcycle parking - Queens Wharf Brisbane

The Queensland Government, in collaboration with Destination Brisbane Consortium, is delivering the redevelopment of Queen’s Wharf Brisbane. As a result of the redevelopment, Queens Wharf Road has been permanently closed and part of William Street has been closed for at least the next six years.

A number of free motorcycle parking spaces within the Queens Wharf Brisbane development area have been lost as a result of these road closures.

Council has worked to install more than 100 spaces at existing sites to meet the needs of motorcyclists.

The interactive map on this page will help you find motorcycle parking locations in the inner city and surrounds.

For further information about the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane development and associated impacts, phone the Department of State Development on 07 3452 7100 or email queenswharfbrisbane@dsd.qld.gov.au.

Parking tips

Motorcycle and scooter parking spaces are provided in Brisbane’s inner city to allow you to park at a cheaper rate than parking in normal car spaces. If you park your motorcycle in a normal car park you must pay the full meter fee for cars.

When choosing where to park your motorcycle or scooter, make sure you check if the parking has:

  • time restrictions - parking in the inner city varies from one hour to unlimited
  • meter fees - some on-road motorcycle parking spaces are metered.

Please be considerate to pedestrians and fellow riders by following these simple parking guidelines:

  • only park within signed parking areas
  • park your motorcycle or scooter with the rear wheel in first
  • only one motorcycle or scooter per marked space
  • if the bay is full, find an alternative parking space. Do not block other motorcycles in
  • do not block other motorcycles in
  • dismount or walk your motorcycle or scooter while you are on the footpath.
