Parking at The Alfred
The Alfred has a multi-storey car park for patients and visitors.
Visitor parking is located in the Alfred Centre car park (called P1) and on the ground floor of the multi-level car park.
The car parks are open daily from 6am to 10.30pm. To find out more contact the Car Park Office.
The Alfred Centre car park is underground on two split levels and is adjacent/under The Alfred Centre. The maximum height clearance for the car park is 2.1 metres.
Enter - The visitor car park is accessible from Centre Lane, an internal roadway, which runs off Commercial Road and is located between The Alfred Centre and The Burnet tower. Traffic approaching along Commercial Road, from either direction, can turn into Centre Lane.
There may be a wait of approximately 15 minutes in the queue to enter the car park during our peak times, between 11am and 3pm. We suggest arriving early for your visit to The Alfred or to use other local parking options.
Exit - When exiting Centre Lane, traffic may only turn left into Commercial Road. Vehicles can then use the dedicated U-turn zone, which is in front of the main entrance to The Alfred, if they wish to head east.
