Portside Parking--Info


In Brisbane, cruises depart from either the Portside Wharf Cruise Terminal in Hamilton, the Multi-User Terminal (F1 Grain), or the General Purpose Terminal on Fisherman Island. If you’re planning on driving to one of these terminals on the day your cruise departs, you will need to decide in advance where to park. This can be an expensive proposition when left until the last minute - but it doesn't have to be!

Whether you're going away for a two-week or eight-week cruise, prefer undercover parking, don't mind open air, or simply want to save as much money as possible on your Brisbane Cruise Terminal parking, Flyparks can help. Read on to find the best-priced option for your travel needs.


Parking at Brisbane Cruise Terminal

If you’re departing from the Portside Wharf Cruise Terminal, you can either opt to park in Brisbane CBD and take a shuttle, or find parking nearer to Brisbane Cruise Terminal itself. It's worth noting that the majority of the private car parks that offer cruise parking are located in Hamilton, which is very close to the Portside Wharf.

Since there is no long-term parking available at Portside Wharf itself, the next best option is to park at a nearby private car park, and then take a shuttle onwards to your cruise. Most of the long-term parking facilities located in Hamilton are highly experienced when it comes to offering cruise parking, and are well aware of the needs of passengers, especially when it comes to assistance with luggage and swift transfers.

Out of the private garages available, the most well-known are Portside Cruise & Airport Parking, Andrews Airport Parking Brisbane, and Secure Parking. Out of all the available options, we recommend Andrews Airport parking because while their  name implies airport parking, it also offer low rates and free transfers to the Portside Wharf Cruise Terminal.

Secure Parking has parking spaces available for rent, lease or to book online, near Brisbane Cruise Terminal. Primarily designed for short-term parking, Secure Parking’s rates are charged by the hour, which is ideal for those heading to the Terminal to pick-up or drop-off friends and family.

The first two hours at Secure Parking Brisbane will be free while parking for 2 - 2.5 hours will cost you $10.00, stays of 5 - 5.5 hours will be $32.00, and parking for 6 hours or more will cost $40.00.

Multi-User Terminal and General Purpose Terminal Parking

If your cruise is leaving from the Multi-User Terminal (F1 Grain) or the General Purpose, it’s worth checking with your cruise operator to see if they have arranged shuttles to and from Brisbane CBD. Facilities at the Multi-User Terminal and General Purpose Terminal are limited, and there is no long-term parking lot on-site. The closest parking options are in the nearby suburb of Wynnum, which is a $20.00 taxi ride away. These include a range of storage facilities and ad hoc spaces offered by private business owners. 

We wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't tell you to double-check with your chosen parking provider before your day of travel to ensure that they can transport you to where you need to go without issue. 


How Does Shuttle Parking Work?

If you’re considering using a shuttle service for the first time, for your cruise ship parking, you’ll find it easy to book and simple to use. After you’ve entered your travel dates, found a suitable car park near Brisbane Cruise Terminal, and paid for your spot, you’ll be issued a booking confirmation.

On the day of your trip, you’ll need to drive to the parking facility and present your booking confirmation to the car park staff. They will park your car inside their secure facility, and direct you to the next available shuttle bus. The shuttle bus will take you to the Cruise Terminal, and then pick you up again upon your return. You simply need to give the car park a call, using the number on your booking confirmation, and let them know that you’ve arrived back in Brisbane. 

Once back at the car park, you’ll find your vehicle ready and waiting, so that you can drive home in the comfort of your own car. 


How Far in Advance Should I Book?

Generally, the earlier you book your parking spot, the more affordable it will be. Most car parks calculate their rates based on factors such as capacity and stay length. As soon as you have your cruise tickets, it’s worth thinking about booking your parking spot as well. 


Where Can I Book Cruise Parking Brisbane?

While there are many competing companies in the Hamilton area, all offering Brisbane Cruise Terminal parking, you can easily and safely book your cruise parking with Portside Parking Brisbane or Andrews Airport Parking Brisbane in less than 5 minutes directly on their website. The rates shown on Flyparks are the same as those advertised by the car park - and we offer you the ability to make amendments to your booking, should you need to. This gives you both the guarantee that a parking space will be reserved for you, at the best price possible, and the ability to later adjust the dates, times, or number plate details, in case your travel plans change. 

Most private parking providers accept website and phone bookings, however, the prices offered online are usually lower, and cannot be found elsewhere. It’s always worth doing your homework, and comparing before you book. The car park which offers the lowest rates for a three-day stay may not be the most affordable for a three-week long trip. Your holiday starts from the moment you leave home, so it’s well worth getting online early and finding the best cruise ship parking deal. Once you’ve paid for a guaranteed parking spot, it’ll only be smooth sailing ahead. 



While we’ve made every attempt to report on Brisbane cruise car parking rates accurately, prices do fluctuate based on factors such as capacity, how long you intend on parking for, and service type. Therefore, rates are subject to change without notice, but were accurate at the time of publication in March 2024.
