    • Hi Nada,

      Be that you will be parking for 4 days, you will need to use the Long Term Car Park (anything less than 3 days is free).

      I couldn’t find any exact info or pictures of the long term car park to allude to the process (be it on the local council website or my own personal photos), but it does thate that “The secure car park is surrounded by high fencing, with security cameras monitoring your vehicle 24/7”.

      So based on this, I would assume there is just a boom gate that you would enter, with no booking required. Parking rates are $5 a day, or $25 for 7 days.

      Having been to the airport, the short term car park was pretty empty, and with the fact there is no option to prebook on the airport’s website, I don’t think you can, or need to book any parking there.

      Thanks
      Michael

    • Hi Lindsay,

      It appears that there are 2 different types of car parking options available at the airport.

      There is non-secure parking up to 3 days that is free (split between 4 hour parking and 3 day parking zones). It does appear to be first come first serve, but if yesterday is anything to go by, there is ample parking spots available.

      If you require secure parking or anything over 3 days, it is $5 a day, or $25 for 7 days.

      The airport is pretty far away from everything and has CCTV everywhere, so if you are only gone for a few days, the free parking would likely suffice.

      Thanks
      Michael
