Transport and Parking

Public Transport

QUT's Gardens Point Precinct is very well serviced by public transport. We suggest using the TransLink Journey Planner to plan your visit. You can also phone TransLink on 131 230.

There is a taxi drop-off point outside Parliament House, about 300m walk from Old Government House.

On foot

There is pedestrian access from the city centre via George Street (approximately 10-minute walk), or from Southbank Parklands via the Goodwill Bridge (approximately 20-minute walk).

Car Parking

A Pay-on-Exit car park located underground in the Science and Engineering Centre (P-block) provides the best access for visitors to Old Government House. Open to the public 24/7, this underground car park includes several PWD parking bays and lift access to ground level (level four).

Rates for the Pay-on-Exit car park are:

Duration of Stay Fee
up to 1 hour $ 4.00
2 hours $ 6.00
3 hours $ 8.00
4 hours $10.00
5 hours $12.00
6 hours $16.00
7 hours $25.00
8 hours $30.00
9 hours $35.00
9+ hours $40.00

Pay Stations, which accept both cash and card, are located in and near the car park. Remember to pay for your parking at one of the Pay Stations prior to returning to your car, as there is no facility for payment at the boom gates.
