There are a number of designated pay and display parking areas throughout the Northern Beaches where payment for parking applies at various times between the hours of 6am and 9pm every day.

All vehicles parking at a Northern Beaches Council pay and display carpark or reserve are required to either display a valid pay and display ticket, pay for parking using the NSW Government’s Park’nPay app or or a valid permit (permitted sites only). This also applies to motor bikes and parking tickets/permits should be displayed in a special holder secured to the vehicle which is the responsibility of the rider.

Please always check signage for the time restrictions and conditions of the carpark as well as the information displayed on the parking machines.

How to pay for parking

Parking rates and instructions on how to purchase a pay & display parking ticket are displayed on all parking machines. Each parking machine accepts coins (10c, 20c, 50c $1 and $2) and offers a card insert and tap and go facility for credit cards (Visa and MasterCard only).

If you’re using a machine that issues tickets, display it on your vehicle's dashboard, visible through your windscreen or in the case of a motorcycle a special holder.
