Changed parking zones

We have introduced a range of 2, 3 and 4 hour parking zones within close proximity to Geelong Hospital and Geelong Private Hospital to assist patients and their families who require extended visits to the hospital.


Outpatients

Please be aware that scheduled appointments can often take longer than expected so park in spots that give you a reasonable amount of time to allow for delays.


Medical emergencies

In the event of an emergency we understand that there’s not always time to find a car park that gives you a reasonable amount of time.

If you receive a parking ticket while at Geelong Hospital please contact the Barwon Health liaison officer on 03 4215 1251 to request an attendance validation form. The form can be submitted with an appeal to the City of Greater Geelong, PO Box 1215, Geelong 3220.

St John of God Hospital can also provide a letter validating that you were attending the hospital for a medical emergency. Call St John of God on 03 5226 8888. The letter may be used as evidence to consider withdrawing the parking fine.


Why do we need timed parking?

Central Geelong has 5,400 on-street car spaces.

We have a mix of timed parks including 1P, 2P, 3P and 4P (as well as 1/4P and 1/2P near ‘quick visit’ shops such as milk bars and drycleaners).

If we didn’t have time limits, cars would clog up spaces for longer making it very difficult for others to find a park.

Workers are encouraged to use our park and ride service to free up car spaces for customers.
