Motorbike Parking

Page hero image

When parking a motorbike, the same rules apply to the motorbike as a motor vehicle. Therefore, parking must be purchased when a payment is required on a parking control sign. However, securing the ticket can be problematic for motorbike riders.
There are two options for purchasing parking for motorbikes in Newcastle; 

  1. Use the EasyPark application to pay for parking when fee is required.
  2. Purchase the ticket and display on the motorbike in an appropriate manner.

Note: In the state of NSW it is illegal to park on the footpath.

City of Newcastle has introduced free all-day motorcycle parking zones in some Newcastle CBD streets. All parking spaces are signposted. Motorcycles can park the whole day and parking is free of charge.
