Where to Park Your Car on Sydney Harbour

Sydney is one of the most populated cities in Australia, home to the spectacular architectural structures including the Harbour Bridge, the Opera house and an abundant natural wealth. The iconic Sydney Harbour is a favourite haunt of both the locals and the tourists, making it a fairly crowded locale in the city, not to mention, our cruises also attract a hefty crowd to the area. One of the oft-quoted concerns from our customers has been parking availability, especially after the pandemic. But not to worry, there are designated cruise parking areas available at most of the major parking facilities in and around the city. Read on to discover some of the best parking facilities in the area that strictly adhere to social distancing rules. 

King Street Wharf Parking on Shelley Street

This parking facility is the nearest to King Street Wharf. Those boarding a Sydney lunch cruise can park their vehicles at this facility to save yourself from any hassle. While most of the facilities take longer periods to finish the booking process, at King Street Wharf Parking on Shelley street, it’s all done in a matter of seconds. If you wish to have a parking space that is closer to the passenger terminal, then this is the perfect choice for you! You can either book a parking slot online or at the facility.  There is also an Electric Vehicle Charging Station available at the facility. This car park is situated just 3 minutes from the Wild Life Sydney. On-street parking is a big ‘no’ in the city and sometimes off-street parking can be expensive. 

Kent Street Parking 

You don't want your Sydney Harbour lunch cruise experience to be ruined because of something as trivial as vehicle parking, do you? One foolproof way to steer clear of this concern is to park your car or pre-book your parking at any one of the Kent Street Cruise Parking facilities to take the stress out of getting to your cruise. There are a handful of parking facilities along Kent Street and most of these even offer special rates to the cruise customers when pre-booking the car-park online. With early bird, hourly, weekend and night parking, this car park meets all types of parking needs. If you’re going on a Sydney lunch cruise, the best option to have is hourly parking. Today, short-term parking for our customers can be easily found through various mobile phone apps too, although the rates and availability are different for each location. But by booking ahead of time, you can avail a parking space that is cheaper online. 

Sussex Street Parking

The Sussex Street that lies parallel to Kent Street, closer to the Wharf, also has a number of parking facilities with special night and weekend rates. Since our scheduled cruises operate mostly over the weekend, a weekend parking at either Kent Street Parking or Sussex Street Parking would be a favourable option for our customers. Also, most facilities let you book the car park from any time between 6am and 5pm and you can exit anytime before midnight.
