Driving and Parking
Browns Bay is an easy destination to access by car, located in the north of Auckland our shopping centre is easily found from all directions. It is only a short drive from the Northern Motorway.
Once you’re here, there is no need to worry about those enormous parking fees found elsewhere in Auckland. All parking is free in Browns Bay! The only thing you need to consider is the time limit on some of our car parks. Please take note of these whilst parking as we would hate for you to acquire a parking ticket!
- For a fleeting visit of 60 minutes or less, you can park almost anywhere, even on our main street, just be aware of the loading zones.
- For a brief but extended visit of less than two hours, you can park just off the main street, down one of our side streets, parking time limits down these streets range from 90 minutes through to no time limit at all, just keep an eye out for the parking signs.
- For a longer visit of greater than 2 hours we recommend parking down Anzac Road, Inverness Road or Bute Road past the intersections of Glen Road as after this point it is no longer timed parking.
Please note that the Clyde Road car park is a private parking space, the times are monitored up until 9pm every evening, be extra wary of the time when parking in this area.
