Parking in Brisbane

We will be travelling south via Brisbane in a motorhome. We would like to spend a day exploring the city but are concerned about the availability of parking space for a 7m motorhome in the city's car parks. Since we'll probably be staying for a couple of days in the Brisbane Holiday Village in Eight Mile Plains would it be better to use public transport to get back to the city for a day rather than trying to park up? I have found out that even parking a car in Brisbane would probably require a second mortgage! Any advice would be welcome.

Thank you.

Yeah, leave the motorhome at the park & use public transport.

Others will confirm, but think theres some kind of tourist go card available.

Check the translink web site.

Enjoy

Yeah i would also leave the motorhome behind. The road system around brisbane would be a pain to navigate and parking does cost a fortune. There are a few places i could think of to park on the northside but save yourself the hassle. The cbd is easy to get around on by foot once you are in.

Ditto to the above. Have a look on

www.translink.com.au

This will give you an idea of how to get from Eight mile Plains to the city.

Don't even consider the tourist Go Card as it is expensive unless you are using the Airtrain to and from the airport.

Don't know if this is of any use to you, but Groupon at the moment is doing deals for weeknights or all-day parking on weekends in Brisbane city for just $5. The car parks are well located at the Wintergarden centre and Festival Hall.
