Chris, there aren't many cheap parking places in central Sydney/Kings Cross. If you plan not to use your car at all, consider parking in a railway commuter parking station out of the city. They are usually free and safe. It's what I do when I visit Sydney and so far I have had no problems.

If you need access to your car, the Domain parking station is not too far away and probably the cheapest in the area. Rates vary from day to day - although you can get "early bird" or evening specials at most parking stations.

I haven't been there for a while but the Altamont Hotel in Darlinghurst Road used to accept casual parking at about $20 a day. It might be worth a look.

Have fun in Sydney.

Thanks very much for that, where abouts outside the city do you park? Reply to this

As far out as I can! Usually at Wyong, Tuggerah or Gosford, but that's convenient for me as I live north of Sydney. The closer in you get, the harder it is to find a space as these car parks are used by commuters. You need to get in before 7am (or after 7pm!) to be sure of getting a park.

To find stations with car parks have a look on the city rail site: www.cityrail.info.

Another option can be shopping centres. They often have free parking if you purchase something in one of their shops but security can be an issue and access is usually restricted to shopping hours. Might be worth considering, though.

BTW. Don't even think about street parking in the inner city. It is very time limited, very expensive and the fines are high if you over-park.
