The Gabba enjoys a close working relationship with the local residents and businesses of the area. To keep up to date with events happening at The Gabba, visit our What's On page.



To ensure street parking is available to residents that live around The Gabba, The Gabba Traffic Area has been created.

A two hour parking limit applies to all on-street parking spaces within The Gabba Traffic Area between 7am-7pm, Monday to Friday. A 15 minute parking limit also applies to all on-street parking spaces between 7am-10pm on days when events are held at the Gabba. 

Motorists can continue to park in spaces signed “P No Limit”, which apply to the parking spaces on the side of the road on which the sign appears. Residents and their visitors who have a parking permit are exempt from the area-wide parking limits.


Residential parking permits allow residents to park unrestricted on the street in their area, with certain conditions.

Permit holders:

  • are exempt from the signed traffic area time limit when parking near their property
  • must clearly display their permit on the vehicle's windscreen or dashboard

  • are able to park in metered parking bays signed 'resident permit excepted' (free of charge with no time restriction)

  • may also park in other areas signed 'resident permit excepted' (with no time restriction)


Permits do not allow residents to park in designated statutory restricted areas, such as:

  • clearway zones

  • loading zones

  • no stopping zones

  • bus zones

  • taxi zones

If you live within The Gabba traffic area, you can apply for a parking permit.
