Wilson Parking owns and operates the Sydney Opera House Car Park, which is a public car park serving Sydney Opera House visitors and ticket buyers, as well as visitors to Circular Quay. The car park is located at 2 Macquarie Street (Northern end), with vehicular access adjacent to the Sydney Opera House Forecourt.

Wilson Parking’s Sydney Opera House Car Park has 1,200 parking bays and has conveniently located pay machines on every level of the car park. The car park is open 24 hours, 7 days a week, and has undercover access to the Sydney Opera House Lower Concourse. 

There are 11 accessible parking spaces on Level 1, and 12 accessible spaces on Level 6 of the car park for RTA Mobility Parking Permit holders. Car spaces on Level 6 also have direct wheelchair access to lifts. 

Wilson Parking offers prepaid discounted parking via their online booking system, Book A Bay.

For any parking enquiries please email or call 1800 PARKING (1800 727 5464).   

Please note: The current light rail construction scheme along George Street will impact journeys to the Sydney CBD. It is important to plan ahead and allow additional travel time. Please visit My Sydney website for more information and consider using journey-planning apps on your mobile devices.

Changes to vehicle access to the Forecourt

To ensure the security, safety and enjoyment of patrons and visitors, the Opera House has implemented a new system to remove almost all remaining vehicle movements from the Forecourt. 

As a result, accessible parking is no longer available on the Concourse beneath the Monumental Steps. Visitors with accessibility requirements who wish to park on site will be directed to Wilson Parking.

The free wheelchair accessible Courtesy Bus will continue to carry passengers to and from Circular Quay and the Opera House doors for matinee and evening performances. 

The new system will be reviewed based on feedback and operational requirements. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we implement these important changes.
