The heart of Sydney has so much to offer: beautiful buildings, restorative parks, great places to grab a drink or share a meal with friends, and all kinds of entertainment and activities to explore. But parking can be a hassle on any big day out or evening adventure. Rather than rush around the streets searching for a spot or constantly worrying about those terrifying parking inspectors, head to a Secure Parking CBD location. If you're an organised adventurer, you can book online, or just head to one of their many convenient parking centres. Savvy drivers will take advantage of their special daily, nighttime and weekend deals while having a ball in the city.

Fun things to do around the CBD

Hyde Park

Explore Hyde Park

This CBD oasis is a beautiful spot to stop for a coffee and people watching, or to take a moonlight evening stroll. Reflect on history at the impressive ANZAC Memorial, then wander up the avenue under a green canopy to the sparkling Archibald Fountain. If you can’t get enough of the natural world, the Australian Museum is right on the park’s eastern border. The best spot to park your ride for a day at the park is with Secure Parking at the 60 Elizabeth Street car park. There’s $12 parking in the evening for you night owls and anyone visiting on the weekend when you book with the special code: WINTER18.

Have lunch in Chinatown

Where else would you find the richest ramen, spiciest hot pots and crunchiest tempura-battered feasts? Chinatown is where Asian nations share their flavours with the city. Head to the neon-lit tables at Eating World food court for the hidden gems, and park close by at the Secure Parking at their World Square car park (50 Goulburn St) for an easy wobble back to your wheels. If you book in between 11am-2pm midweek, you’ll get a spot for $30 with the lunch time special.

Visit an exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum

Do some hands-on exploration at this Sydney institution of science and art. The Powerhouse Museum will soon be on the move, relocating to Western Sydney, so take advantage of its awesome exhibitions while they’re still in the centre. There’s always something for galactic explorers, crafty kids and lovers of fashion – and of course, the interactive Star Wars experience lands in November. Pull into the Secure Parking Harris Street car park in Pyrmont for the shortest walk to the museum’s doors. If you book ahead of time using the discount code WINTER18, you'll get bargain weekend parking for $12.
