FREE car parking

Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre provides 1900 car spaces, including:

FREE THREE-HOUR car parks located in front of the shopping mall. These are car parks are lined white.
FREE ALL-DAY car parking located at the rear of the shopping centre (behind Reading Cinemas, Coles and KMart loading docks) and in car spaces adjacent to the car park fence line, along Pioneer Road and Colac Road. These car parks are lined yellow.
Disabled car spaces are located near all shopping centre entrances.
Parents with Prams car spaces located near the Coles and KMart entrances.

Three-hour car parking restrictions apply to ensure all customers have a fair and reasonable time to accommodate their Geelong shopping and entertainment needs and allows for car parking to be available to all customers who visit, no matter what time of day.

This approach has been endorsed by Secure Park where the 3 hour free car park terms and conditions, together with Loading Bays, Disability Bays and No Standing Areas will be monitored. Any non-compliance of the 3 hour time limit will result in the issue of a Non-Compliance Breach Notice to the vehicle owner which is to be paid to Secure Park.
