Paddington by Car

Parking in the inner city is never easy and we’d like to encourage public transport in the interests of the environment. Most car spots in Paddington are on the street and specified for one to two hours. Along Oxford Street heading east parking is metered and you’ll find free 15 minute parking (don’t forget to take a docket). Be mindful of the afternoon clearway between 4pm and 7pm. Heading toward the city there are unlimited and 2 hour parking spots. The clearway here is from 7am to 10am. Paid parking is available in the parking station under Romeo’s IGA every day except Saturday - enter from Newcombe Street.
