Parking meters and payments

Parking signs indicate the allowable time limit and if a fee is required.

Parking meters are used to regulate parking in high demand areas. Parking prices are structured depending on long and short-term parking. Read the parking signs to confirm parking time limits for the area before payment.

Parking meters are all the same type within the Geelong area. For more information on how to use the meters you can download a user guide.

Parking meters and fines

You can be fined if you park in a metered space for longer than the permitted maximum time, even if you put more money in the meter.

You will need to move your car once the maximum time limit has expired.
