Enjoy Hassle-Free Shopping and Celebrations This December

Townsville’s festive season just got brighter! With the return of free two-hour parking across the city centre, your Christmas shopping and gatherings are about to become effortless and enjoyable.

Easing into Festive Joy

For the entire month of December, residents and visitors alike can revel in two hours of complimentary parking in any 2P-marked spot.

No more fumbling with metres or apps; it’s all about convenience and celebration this holiday.

Making the Most of Upgraded Parking

Thanks to the city council’s forward-thinking approach, Townsville now boasts cutting-edge smart metre technology.

These Australian-made metres offer seamless transactions through coins, cards, or the dedicated Townsville Parking app.

Efficiency Meets Convenience

The app, tailored for residents’ parking needs, allows for payment without the hassle of reaching the metre. What’s more, vehicle identification through number plates eliminates the need for paper tickets.

Exploring the Heart of Townsville

Acting Mayor Mark Molachino encourages everyone to explore the vibrant city centre. This free parking initiative provides ample time to explore our local shops, galleries, and eateries,” he said, emphasising the ease this brings to holiday shopping.

Remember the Details

While revelling in the two-hour complimentary parking, remember that time restrictions apply. This offer extends exclusively to 2P spaces, with regular parking fees for 4P and 8P spots still in effect.

This festive gesture not only encourages community engagement but also supports local businesses during the holiday rush.

Embrace the spirit of the season by discovering the treasures of Townsville’s city centre, hassle-free and brimming with joy!
