Car Parking for Free
Beaufort Street is a popular place. So it is not surprising that car parking spaces are also popular. Most of the parking is either paid parking (particularly south of Walcott Street) or timed parking (north of Walcott Street).
It’s much better to walk, cycle, get a taxi, catch the bus or even the train here. You then get to soak up more of the cool atmosphere. Or have a few drinks without worrying about driving home. But if you have to drive, there is lots of parking available for smart people. You just need to explore a bit.
There is free, untimed parking available on Walcott Street west of Raglan Road (look out for Fez Café on the corner). It is available anytime except for the Clearway times of 4.15pm to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. There is always heaps of free parking available in this location.
There is also free parking available on Field Street, Mount Lawley, just across Walcott Street.
