From tomorrow, all parking across the Gold Coast will become completely free.
Mayor Tom Tate confirmed council had decided to switch off all of the city’s parking metres in a bid to help support local business and everyone still working through the coronavirus crisis.
“That is all on street and City owned off street parking, thus free parking,” the Mayor said.

“This is for the whole of the City, but is especially to assist health workers in our medical precincts.”
The Bruce Bishop, Mal Burke and Jubilee carparks will still cost motorists, however that will be capped at just $5 a day.
In addition, Council’s parking officers have also been instructed not to issue fines for parking offences across the City, except in circumstances where the “illegal parking is causing a safety risk or preventing the free-flow of traffic through the Gold Coast.”
Brisbane City Council has confirmed they are also following suit and will switch off all parking metres, making more than 8,000 spaces free of charge.
