Whether or not your Parking Permit will be recognised depends on where you are from:

Note – The Australian Government recently launched an Australian Disability Parking Permit that is recognised in all its States and Territories. The national permit will also make it easier for enforcement officers to recognise permits and remove inconvenience for motorists travelling interstate. These changes will not, however, affect disabled visitors from abroad. For more information go to


What you should always do:

Always - Ask locally, park sensibly and safely, obey the rules, enjoy your visit!
