We all know that you shouldn’t drive into the city on New Years Eve and that public transport is the way to go. But if you absolutely have to drive in, for whatever reason, we’ve got an insider’s guide on all the off-street parking that will be open and not affected by any road closures.
Off-street car parks will definitely be the way to go, you’ll almost be guaranteed a spot because most people will be catching public transport and there will be extra enforced special event clearways on the street, so you know the rangers and tow-trucks will be out in full force.
View the map of Road closures on the official website.
So these are our picks, it’s a Thursday night so there’s a few cheap flat rates available if they’re still on offer.
*Use this as a guide, car park operators have the right to change rates for special events, please check with the car park operators before parking.
