How we manage car parking (particularly around the city) is important for the community and a key challenge.

Your responsibility

There is a right way to park in our streets.

What we're doing about parking

The City is embracing new technologies as we introduce an easier and more efficient car parking system in central Geelong.

The smart parking innovations include pay-by-plate methodology, licence plate recognition and a new pay-by-phone application by EasyPark.

The rollout will allow us to effectively introduce a free parking trial in central Geelong from 1 December.

The trial was initiated after a Council resolution in April 2019.

Motorists will receive a free 30-minute period in two-hour parking zones on weekdays.
