Car parks immediately outside the Cairns Hospital and Cairns Private Hospital are the most highly sought after spaces in the hospital precinct. Making extra paid parking will ensure a greater turn-over of vehicles in this area.
Premium parking at Council’s off-street car park on the Esplanade opposite Cairns Hospital is currently 4-hours paid parking. This will change to 3-hours paid parking.
If people do not wish to pay for parking, free parking is still available close to both hospitals.
