Cheap parking on offer to bring back buzz

Discounted parking is being offered to encourage more Victorians back into the city to bring back the buzz and support jobs.

Parking for school holiday attractions like Winter Village, Truffle Festival and Imaginaria will be cheaper thanks to big parking discounts on offer from Monday 5 July.

$5 parking deals will be available on weekends and after 4pm on weekdays across 33 Wilson and Secure Parking car parks until 22 August, by pre-booking parking online or via an app.

Lord Mayor Sally Capp said discounts from car park operators was another way to encourage more people back into the city. 

“Every extra person that comes into the city provides an opportunity for local traders who have just been through the toughest trading period in decades,” the Lord Mayor said. 

“We want to bring back the buzz to Melbourne because a vibrant and busy city means more customers for businesses and more Melburnians in jobs.

“With so much happening, it’s a perfect time to come in and enjoy everything our city has to offer.

“There are so many events and activities for families to discover in the city over the school holidays, like the Winter Village at Federation Square, Truffle Festival at Queen Vic Market, and the Imaginaria play experience at Docklands.”
