Finding a park

Finding a park is often the hardest part of driving anywhere, but we're here to help you.

Special designated drop-off and pick-up zones will be in place including for those with a disability permit (details to be advised closer to the event). 

There are over 1,000 free on-street parking spaces across the city for scooters and motorcycles. Just check the signage before you leave your ride. 

Our free ParkAdelaide app is a great way to find areas where parking bays are available. You can also use the app to pay for your parking. Best of all, the app can remind you when your parking is due to expire and you can even pay to extend the time. 

If it's off-street, undercover parking you're after UPark have several parking stations conveniently located. Check out UPark Frome or Rundle Street

Getting around

If you'd rather just relax or have had a drink too many then the crew at EcoCaddy will be happy to take you from A to B.
