The Entertainment Quarter has a 2,000 spot multi-storey car park open from 6.00am to 2.00am, 7 days a week. It’s perfect for your next visit to EQ, a game or a live event at the SCG or Allianz Stadium, a gig at The Hordern, or Liberty Hall or a fun night out at one of our great restaurants and bars.
Enjoy up to 2 hours of free parking (on non-event days) if you enter the carpark before 6pm at night (after 6pm at night is just a flat $7 rate).
The maximum height clearance for the car park is 2.1 metres.
How our carpark works:
Our EQ Carpark uses Car Licence Plate recognition technology to replace the paper tickets (much better for the environment).
Just pull up to the boom gate at the entry, our camera will read your licence plate. Park in one of the 2000 bays and enjoy your time at the Entertainment Quarter. If you are in and out in under 2 hours just proceed directly to the boomgate on exit and you are free to go. You can check how long you have been at the EQ via scanning the QR Code (displayed on screens and signage around the EQ) or at one of our pay stations.
Should you be longer then 2 hours, please simply pay for your parking at one of the pay stations, pay via the QR codes displayed around the EQ or pay directly with a credit card at the boomgates on exit.

Please note: you may experience delays exiting the car park when there is an event on due to external traffic operations happening outside of the Entertainment Quarter.

What if I cant remember my Licence Plate?
It is important to remember your licence plate number as it will become your ticket. It’s a good idea to take a photo of it with your phone.
How do I pay?
There are three easy ways to pay for parking if you have parked at the Entertainment Quarter for over two hours or its an ‘event day’ parking at the EQ: head to one of our pay station by entering your licence plate details, at the exit by payWave or with a credit card; or pay via the QR code displayed around the EQ. If you have registered online, any fees owing will be automatically debited from your nominated credit or debit card when you exit.
How can I pay?
Via Credit Card, Paywave (Apple Pay or Google Pay) or at our Wilsons Parking Office (located at the Western end of the Carpark, opposite Watsons EQ Pub).
Surcharges on your credit card transaction may apply
What if I forget to pay before exit?
You can pay at the exit with a credit card via payWave. There is also a call button at each exit if you need any assistance.
How can I track how long I have been in the carpark?
You can check what time you entered the car park by typing in your licence plate details at one of the pay stations located at the car park ramp on the ground level of the centre, or via the QR code located on our signage around the EQ.
I used the carpark multiple times a day (multiple entry and exits), how will that be charged?
If you exit the centre and want to return on the same day, there must be 45mins between each exit and re-entry to receive the new 2 hours free parking. If you enter within this period, additional parking charges apply (for the duration of the total time parked in the car park, from the time of the first recorded entry).
How do I validate my parking should it be an ‘Event Day”?
Simply validate your parking with the store / restaurant / market stall you spent your $10 or more at. They will assist you with our Parking Tablet – where you simply enter your Licence Plate into the system to reduce your parking.
You must validate your parking PRIOR to paying. No refunds can be issued once you have paid for parking (we cant post-validate after paying)
I have a accessible parking pass, will rates apply?
Yes, parking rates will still apply. We have dedicated parking spaces located on the ground floor of the carpark. All accessible parking has ramps and lifts to get to all levels of the EQ.

Please press the intercom HELP button on the pay station or exit gate and a member of our team will assist you. Or you can head to our Wilsons Parking Office located on the Ground Floor, and the team will be able to assist.
