Types of Parking at Ballina Airport 

When searching for parking at Ballina Airport, you have four secure options to choose from. These include car parks with shuttle services, and those within walking distance. The main difference between these car parks is that three are owned and managed by the airport, while one is operated by a private company.

All options provide excellent security, but they vary in rates, proximity to the terminals, and whether they offer open-air or undercover parking. To ensure you get the best rates, Flyparks recommends booking your parking space online whenever possible. Despite its smaller size, Ballina Airport has limited parking, making it just as challenging to find a spot as at larger airports like Sydney or Melbourne.

Car Parks within Walking Distance

There are three options to choose between for car parks within walking distance: General Parking, Reserved Parking, and Premium Parking. All three are only a short walk from the terminal and charge different rates. There are no hourly parking rates for the Reserved or Premium Parking lots, as they charge on a 24-hour basis. The General Car Park, however, does charge hourly ratings starting at  $6.00 for 1 - 2 hours, and $20.00 for 1 day.

You cannot book your parking online at the General Car Park or the Premium Car Park, you must pay at the payment machine (with cash) or boom gate (by credit card) before leaving.There’s a change machine near the front entry of the terminal building. The Reserved Car Park accepts online bookings up to 10 minutes before arrival.

General Parking

The General Car Park is one of the official car parks at Ballina Byron Airport and is just a short 3-minute walk to the terminal. The fenced car park is open from 24/7, and is equipped with license plate recognition, so your vehicle number will be recognised and keep track of your parking duration so you can pay upon return.

Upon return, travellers can pay with a credit card at the exit gate, or with cash at the payment station with the Arrivals & Departures Hall. This car park is a great option for Ballina Airport long-term parking as prices are only $20.00 a day.

Where can I find free parking near Ballina Airport?

Free parking near Ballina Airport is hard to come by. There are shopping centres, like Tamar Village, located 8 minutes away from the airport, that can serve a free place to park at while you wait for passenger(s). However, it is not recommended to park here for extended periods of time, as your car may be subject to tow. In the past, some travellers have additionally found free parking on Southern Cross Drive, near the depot of Ballina Shire Council. It has been noted that parking here can be extremely dangerous, as passengers have to walk on the road to access their vehicles, and there is a blind corner obstructing passengers from the full sight of incoming traffic.

To avoid unnecessary hazards, Flyparks recommends parking in the General Car Park at Ballina Airport for low costs of $4.00 for 1 hour, $6.00 for 1 - 2 hours, or $8.00 for 2 - 4 hours.
