Orange Area – Restricted Access (see map)

Roads will be closed from 8am to 9pm on 26 January 2014. No street, verge or crossover parking will be permitted during this time. Residents can enter via the points marked.

I live in the orange area and can park on my private property

You don’t need a special permit. You can enter the area by presenting a valid driver’s license listing your current address. If your driver’s license is registered at another address, please provide a utility bill as proof of address.

I live in the orange area in a single residential property and I don’t have a private parking space

You need a Resident Verge Permit to park on the verge in front of your property.  Your crossover is part of the verge so you need the permit to park on your crossover.

I live in the orange area and expect visitors on Australia Day

If you have parking space available on your private property, you can apply for a Visitor Access Permit for your guests, employees etc. This permit does not allow them to park on a verge (including your crossover) or street.

I live in the orange area and require a Care Provider on Australia Day

Should you have a Care Provider scheduled to visit on Australia Day 2014, please contact a Customer Liaison Officer on 9474 0777 to arrange a special permit.

How to apply for your verge permit

A copy of your vehicle’s registration (showing current address or provide additional proof – see above) must be forwarded along with the completed permit application form: in person (City of South Perth Civic Centre), by email (, by fax
(9474 2425) or by mail (City of South Perth, Civic Centre, Cnr Sandgate St and South Tce, South Perth WA 6151).

Pink Area – Restricted Parking (see map)

Anyone can access this area but parking is restricted to maintain sufficient access for emergency vehicles. Residents or guests that ordinarily park on the road or verge (this includes your crossover), must observe the temporary parking signs. To find out if your street is affected please refer to the map.

ACROD and Bicycle Parking

There are three ACROD parking areas for the 2014 Australia Day Celebrations (see map): 

• Inside the Celebration Zone (off Mill Point Rd opposite Forrest St)

• Coode St Car Park (end of Coode St)

• Hurlingham Rd Car Park (end of Hurlingham Rd)

A valid ACROD permit must be displayed to gain access into the access restricted areas (entering via the points marked on the map).

In 2014, the City will introduce an additional shuttle bus for people with disability and their carers, family members or friends. This small bus has a tail lift for wheelchairs. People with disability that are unable to get to GBLC or the Civic Centre can contact 9474 0777 to organise an alternative pick up. 

The shuttle buses will run approximately every 15 minutes back and forth between 10am and 9pm, but not during the fireworks.

Both GBLC and the Civic Centre are easily accessible from the Kwinana Fwy and have ample parking facilities.
