Parking locations

Where the permit is not valid

Foreshore parking permits do not allow you to park in:

  • private car parks, including the St Kilda Sea Baths car park
  • Shakespeare Grove car park or on the Lower Esplanade for free
  • residential permit zones
  • time restricted locations for longer than the time on the sign.

Permits do not exempt drivers from clearways and no stopping areas.

Don’t copy, reproduce or tamper with your permit. If we think a parking permit is being misused, we may ask Victoria Police to investigate it as a criminal offence.
