Stayed here on Friday night after our ferry ride over. Lots of spaces, but it is a car park in the centre of town. Lights are on all night, but it was reasonably quiet after 10.30/11pm. There are toilets at ANZAC park, around 200m from the car park, which were open all night. You have to leave by 8am mid-week or 9am at the weekends, but you can get 1 hour free parking to extend this if you wish.



Just a car park. Toilets at the bus stop open 7am-5pm.



Good for the weekend. Quiet, except for late-arriving campers; toilets a 3 minute walk to Montgomery Square in one direction, 9 screen cinema a 3 minute walk in another. Restaurants all around. DO NOT leave your garbage outside of your van at night: the red bills will arrive before the sun is up, take their meal up onto your roof, and serve as everyone's raucous alarm clock, making one hell of a mess in the process.
