Does the hospital campus have long stay parking for people who need to stay overnight?
There is unrestricted parking available on Level 4 of the Southern Multistorey carpark, as well as the Yamba Drive South carpark.
Why are there so many disability spaces in the Southern Multistorey carpark?
The large amount of disability spaces cater for the future loss of these spaces during the redevelopment of the campus. The Southern Multistorey carpark is designed as the hospital’s main carpark.
Can I overstay my parking time?
Arrangements are in place to help patients and carers who overstay their parking time due to unforeseen delays. If you are unexpectedly delayed, please speak with a staff member in the area where you are having your appointment before your parking time runs out. They will let Canberra Health Services Parking Operations know you have been delayed.
How do I enter the Yamba Drive South carpark?
The entrance to the Yamba Drive South carpark is off Yamba Drive when heading north to the City. You cannot access the carpark when travelling in the other direction.
Are these on campus transport options?
Canberra Health services provides a free courtesy to assist patients, visitors and staff with transport across the hospital campus. The service operates on Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm, except on weekends and public holidays.
Courtesy bus stops are located at the Emergency Department, Canberra Region Cancer Centre, Bateson Road, Building 15 (outpatient services), The Canberra Hospital main entrance and the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children.

What can I do if I receive a Parking Infringement Notice?
If you receive a parking infringement while parked on the hospital grounds, you can apply for a review of the infringement through the Infringement Review Office via this link.
Further information can be found on the back of your parking infringement notice or from the Access Canberra Contact Centre 13 22 81.
If you receive a parking infringement and you want to dispute the fine, you can ask for a certificate of attendance from the area where you had your appointment. This can be used as evidence when disputing the parking infringement.
Does the compliance remain the same on weekends?
Most time limited spaces that are 1 hour and above are unrestricted on weekends. All parking areas that have a permit sign or are time limited are still patrolled on weekends. This includes ‘No Parking’ zones.
What should I do when I drop someone off?
Pick-up and set-down zones are located at main entry points of the hospital. We encourage you not to park in these areas for long periods of time as they are time limited and fines may apply.
What alternate transport can I utilise to get the Canberra Hospital?
Transport Canberra has a free Flexible Bus Service which is designed specifically for aged residents or people with a mobility difficulty.

A taxi rank is located outside the main entrance of the hospital and various buses service the campus from Woden Bus Station. If you wish to ride, bicycle racks are available to lock your bike.
