Parking

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 than 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.

Simply enter in your Licence Plate Number into the validator at Hoyts before returning to your car to receive an additional hour free parking. Please note, your discount is only valid on the day of purchase for an additional hour.

Event Day Parking

Event days are classified when the Moore Park precinct is in full swing and a $30 flat rate fee for parking at the Entertainment Quarter is applicable.

Please note: due to the large number of cars leaving the carpark post large scale events within the Moore Park precinct – usually all 2000 cars – there will be expected delays in leaving the carpark. We encourage you to stop at one of our restaurants or cafes (or even head for a lap around the Hyper Kart track) to easy your wait time in your car.

To assist on event days we ask that you pay for your ticketless parking PRIOR to returning to your car – this speeds up the exit boomgates for everyone.

You can reduce the $30 Event Day Parking Fee to the lower / causal rate, by making a purchase of $10 or more at any of our Entertainment Quarter stores or restaurants or cinemas; validating your licence plate in store or by presenting your receipt at the Wilsons cashier to ensure that the casual rates apply.

You must validate your Licence Plate Number PRIOR to exiting the carpark or paying, you can not validate your parking at the boomgates or pay stations. Return back to the store / restaurant you purchased your minimum $10 spend in, and they will be able to validate your parking via the validation tablet. We can not validate / reduce parking costs after paying.
