Canberra Airport offers the most convenient airport parking options within close proximity to the terminal building.
The car park closes 30 minutes after the last flight arrival or 30 minutes after all international passengers have been processed (whichever is latest). Car parks re-open each morning at 4:00am.
The two ‘Blue’ and ‘Green’ multi-level covered car parks each offer 1000 parking spaces and passengers can access both the arrivals and departures levels of the terminal directly from the car parks.
Drivers can benefit from the Parking Guidance System (PGS) which provide exact number of parking spaces available on each level. Occupied and vacant parking bays on each level are easily identified by LED red/green lights.
Vehicle height restriction in the multi-level car parks is 2.3m.

The Free 10 Minute Pick-up is located a short, two minute walk from the arrivals hall in our red, outdoor car park. Vehicles may park in the dedicated bays for 10 minutes for free. Vehicles that stay beyond the free 10 minutes will pay normal parking rates.
Obtain a ticket as normal from the entry boom gate to the car park. Insert the same ticket at the exit point in less than 10 minutes from entry to the car park to exit without charge. If you stay beyond the free 10 minutes, proceed to the pay machines located in the car park and pay your nominated fee.

The Express Pick-up is located on the ground floor of the green IndoorPark just a short, 20 metre covered walk from the arrivals hall. This close proximity to the terminal makes it ideal for those who are short on time plus includes the comforts of a dedicated waiting lounge should your pick-up be late.
Here’s how – driving the vehicle
Enter your credit card at the entry boom gate and enter the same credit card into the exit boom gate as you leave. Alternatively, you can take an entry ticket and pay your nominated fee at the pay machines provided.
Here’s how – passenger
As a passenger you can meet your collector in the baggage hall or in the car park. Alternatively, if they haven’t arrived yet, you can wait in the comfort of our Express Pick-up Waiting Lounge located adjacent to the car park.
