Parking at the Domestic P1 & P2 Car Parks

The P1 Car Park and the P2 Car Park are multi-storey parking facilities located at Sydney Airport. Owned and managed by the Sydney Airport Corporation, the P1 and P2 parking facilities are located within a 5 minute walk of Domestic Terminals 2 and 3, with pedestrian entrances and exits connected directly to the airport. There are accessible spaces available for disabled travellers near the entrance, as well as Guaranteed Space Zone parking, which must be reserved in advance on Sydney Airport’s official website. 

Open 24/7, P1 and P2 provide secure, weather-protected, short and long term parking, with barrier entry and monitored CCTV. P1/P2 operate as mid-range car parks, with drive-in rates starting from $10.60 for up to 30 minutes. 

The P1 Car Park is split across 4 levels, and P2 has 8 levels. Except for the roof, the two car parks are undercover. P1 and P2 can accommodate a variety of different vehicle types, from sedans and Ute's, luxury sports cars, and station wagons, to 4WDs. There are height restrictions in place, with a maximum vehicle size of 2.1 metres in both of the car parks. The main benefits of parking at P1 or P2 include:

  • Ease of access - the car parks are open 24/7, 365 days a year
  • Advanced security features, within a purpose-built, multi-storey facility
  • Ideal location - designed for use by domestic travellers
  • Accessible parking spaces nearest to Arrivals/Departures at Terminals 2 & 3
  • Guaranteed Space Zone is available to customers who have pre-booked online


Sydney Airport P1/P2 Car Park Rates

P1 and P2 are mid-range car parks, meaning that their pricing structure sits somewhere in between budget shuttle parking rates and those of premium valet services. When using P1/P2, travellers pay for the convenience of being able to park their vehicle within walking distance of Terminals 2 and 3, as well as the safety and security of undercover parking. P1/P2 are fractionally more expensive than the Sydney Airport P3 Car Park, especially for long stays of one or two weeks, and quite a lot pricier than Sydney Airport Express or Air Travel Parking. You can read about how the prices of these airport car parks compare in our Sydney Airport parking rates article. 

Drive-up rates at P1/P2 start at $10.60 for 15-30 minutes, $21.20 for 30-60 minutes, $31.90 for 1-2 hours, $39.90 for 2-3 hours, and $69.90 for stays of between 3-24 hours. Each additional 24-hour period (or part thereof) is charged at $68.40. Do keep in mind that paying at this car park will incur a Credit, Debit, and PayPal processing fee that will vary depending on the payment method used. 

In the table above, we have also listed the price of off-site Sydney Airport parking at Air Travel Parking Sydney and Sydney Airport Express, two highly reputable alternatives to P1 and P2 parking at Sydney Airport. For those who don't mind a few-minute shuttle ride to the terminals, we recommend off-site Sydney Airport parking rates to get a better deal.

Reviews of P1 & P2 Parking Sydney Airport 

The P1-P2 Car Park at Sydney Airport reports less than favourable reviews, averaging 3.3 / 5 out of 96 Google reviews. Many customers cited damage done to their cars, and dissatisfaction with the poorly designed entry points, lack of car park signage, defective entry/exit barriers, overcrowded lots, overpriced rates, and no present customer service team to assist when needed. However, positive customer reviews do express satisfaction with the proximity of the car park to the terminals and the ease of online booking through Sydney Airport's website.

It is important to note that customers have reported instances where inadvertently entering the P2 car park, and subsequently attempting to exit may result in a parking charge. To avoid unwanted fines, check the signage of the car park before entering to ensure its the car park you booked or plan to park at.


Please note that it is not possible to book at the official Sydney Airport car parks with Flyparks, including P1 Parking and P2 Parking. We instead feature a range of alternative parking options on our website, from private service providers. Many of them offer competitive rates and a great level of customer service as standard. The rates quoted were accurate in June 2024.
