Park It Like It's Hot: Where To Park When Visiting Subiaco
Like it or not, Perth is a city dominated by the car. When you need to get around town in a quick and convenient manner, driving is often the only viable option. As a result the issue of parking often raises its ugly head, much to the consternation of motorists the city over. It can often be a nightmare just to find a spot, and when you do you often get charged an arm and a leg for the privilege of leaving your car stationary for a few hours. It’s enough to drive you mad! (Pun entirely intended!)
Thankfully there’s an abundance of great parking in Subi that won’t cost you the earth. Make sure you check out this helpful parking guide next time you’re planning on hopping in the car and heading this way.
Free Street Parking
If you’re heading in to Subi for a meeting or to do some shopping there’s no need to shell out for parking. Free 1, 2 and 3 hour parking spots abound on lots of major roads like Roberts, Rokeby and Hay St, so it’s always easy to find a parking spot. Just remember to double check the time limit before you leave your car!
Free Evening and Weekend Parking
To help encourage people to visit the area’s numerous fantastic shops, cafes and restaurants, The City of Subiaco has come to the party and allowed free evening and weekend parking - complete with no ticket and no time limit - in all of the car parks they operate. How good is that!
You can find these carparks at the following locations:

Can’t wait until the evening or weekend for your free parking? Not a problem! Just park at the Rowland Street car park (located at 70-90 Rowland Street between Bagot and Barker roads) and you can score 3 hours of sweet, sweet free parking just by displaying a ticket or activating an EasyPark session. That means more money in your pocket to spend on Subiaco’s many delights.
