Canberra Parking

Canberra was established in 1913 as the capital for the newly federated Australian nation. The Canberra central business district is often referred to as the ‘Civic’. It is the home of Parliament House. Canberra plays host to a community of residents who've relocated from larger cities such as Melbourne and Sydney to work in politics, government and related industries such as media, not to mention the large number of student population. The city has been built around Lake Burley Griffin housing government, educational and commercial buildings and facilities and a number of renowned galleries and museums. But Canberra is more than just historic infrastructures, museums and parks.

Cheap Parking in Canberra

Over half of the Australian Capital Territory is preserved as national parks and nature reserves, including Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and Namadgi National Park, thus earning the nickname bush capital. From the awesome beaches of the coast, to the rural beauty of the countryside, Canberra is best explored by car. The iconic national attractions, pristine beaches and breathtaking adventures in the great outdoors are all just moments away. There are still ample parking in the area for both tourists and locals alike. But for a rapidly growing city such as Canberra, the visitors and residents population will soon outnumber the available parking spaces. A number of high density housing units are being built in Canberra to accommodate the rising population, which has grown 11% since 2011. That makes it Australia's fastest growing city. Due to convenience and work location, young professionals downsize into apartment units at the Civic and are willing to pay extra for additional facilities, especially for guaranteed parking spaces.
