Parking in Chatswood CBD

Chatswood Central Business District (CBD) is a major shopping, cultural, entertainment and employment centre. The CBD has good access for visitors by rail, metro, bus, roads, bicycle and walking.

There are opportunities to park your motor vehicle both off street in public car parks and on street.

Types of parking

Off-street parking

There are a range of public and privately owned carparks across the Chatswood CBD.

Use of the off street car parks is strongly encouraged as these facilities are:

  • conveniently located across the CBD, with quick and direct access from major roads
  • close to all major destinations

The public car parks provide convenient undercover parking at a reasonable charge.

On-street parking

Chatswood CBD streets provide a diverse range of parking opportunities including unrestricted, timed and meter pay parking.

Please note: Visitor parking is limited due to the need to support public transport and traffic control. The spaces that are available are typically always in high demand. A fee is applied to timed parking spaces to encourage turnover and availability.

Privately owned and operated car parks

Only Council owned public car parking stations are shown on the Parking Finder tool.

Information on the location and operating arrangements of privately owned and operated public car parking stations can be found online.

Service and trade vehicles

Service and trade vehicles are strongly encouraged to park in the off-street loading bay and service vehicle car park of their customer’s building at all times. The use of off street parking facilities improves access to the work site and safety for everyone.

Park'nPay - Metered pay parking

Chatswood CBD ticket parking machines uses Park'nPay, a smartphone app developed by NSW Government aimed at improving the parking experiences for its citizens.

The app provides the convenience of use across a number of local government areas in NSW, including a top up function and reminder alerts of time expiry.
