Parking 

Parking Around Town 

The City of Busselton has several differently timed parking zones in our town centres. 

All day unrestricted parking is available in peripheral carparks and streets.

You can avoid a parking fine by observing time restrictions and parking your vehicle wholly within a designated parking bay.   

You should not:

  • park on the City’s parks and reserves
  • remove chalk from your tyres
  • move your vehicle and re-park within the same street or timed carpark to avoid time restrictions. These time restricts will apply to the whole street or designated area.

You should not park or stop:

  • in a disabled parking bay unless you have an ACROD permit clearly displayed
  • in an area designated for buses or taxes
  • in areas designated as ‘No Stopping’ or in a ‘Loading Zone’ unless in a commercial vehicle and you are loading goods
  • over a footpath, traffic island or median strip
  • facing on-coming traffic (i.e. on the wrong side of the road)
  • on a verge unless you have permission of the abutting resident
  • within 10 metres of an intersection or corner
  • within 3 metres of an unbroken dividing line or median strip
  • in a way that obstructs other road users or pedestrians

Parking Around Schools

Parking restrictions around schools protect children and ensure the flow of traffic during busy school drop-off and pick-up times.

City Rangers enforce school parking restrictions as part of their routine patrols and in response to complaints from local residents, the school itself, or other parents who observe drivers not parking safely or lawfully.

To avoid a parking fine, you should not:

  • double park or stop parallel to another vehicle to allow your child to enter or exit your vehicle
  • obstruct a children’s crossing

You should not park or stop:

  • with any part of your vehicle on a footpath
  • on traffic islands and median strips
  • on a verge or nature strip without the consent of the abutting resident
  • across a driveway
  • in a bus zone
  • longer than the permitted time in a time parking area
  • facing oncoming traffic (i.e. on the wrong side of the road)
  • within 10 metres of an intersection or corner
  • within 3 metres of an unbroken dividing line or median strip
  • on or across a footpath
