Make your shopping, celebrations and catch-ups in the Townsville city centre easier this Christmas with free two-hour parking for the month of December.

Park in any spot marked with a 2P sign and get two hours of free parking, with no need to use the meter or the Townsville Parking app.

Acting Mayor Mark Molachino said the free two-hour parking made it even easier for residents and visitors to enjoy the shops, galleries and eateries in the city centre.

“Free two-hour parking gives visitors to the city plenty of time to check out some shops or galleries and grab a bite to eat with friends and family,” Cr Molachino said. “Head into the city to do some of your holiday shopping with our local traders and to make the most of the great offerings we have in the heart of Townsville.”

“Remember that time restrictions still apply on all 2P spaces, so move your car once your allotted two hours is up.”

Free two-hour parking runs from December 1 to December 31, 2023, in all 2P parking spaces. Time restrictions apply.

Parking fees still apply for all 4P and 8P parking spaces.
