The cost of parking in the CBD can take the wind out of your sails quicker than a dirty AFL tackle. I've been for shopping, theatre, and meals in the CBD that I spent less money on than the parking near the venue. Well, you are going to call me your new best friend when you discover my secrets to parking in the CBD. Okay, so they are not-so-secret, and kind of widely advertised, but I am still surprised at how few people know, let us have it, Adelaide; where are the best places to park in the CBD?

A bit of planning ahead, and a few simple, one-time-registration steps, and you're on your way to the cheapest (sometimes free, with special promotions) parking in Adelaide CBD, with
Secure-a-Spot Online Booking for parking.

Book in advance (as little as one hour ahead), choose your location, entry, and exit time, and receive an entry code by email. For all Secure-a-Spot bookings, you have a 15-minute grace period prior to the entry time of your Secure-a-Spot reservation period. If you exit the car park outside of your reservation period, you may incur fees in addition to your Secure-a-Spot booking fee. When you book early bird, evening, or weekend, you will have more flexible entry and exit conditions. You may only park at the nominated location.

GoSecure is a smartphone app by Secure Parking that helps you find the cheapest and closest car parks to your destination while you're on the go. GoSecure provides you with all the details you need for each car park, including car park rates, operating hours, and the services that are available at the car park. All you need to do is enter your destination, the date and time of day you want to park, and the Deal Finder will provide you with a choice of the cheapest or closest parking. At over 70 Secure Parking car parks you book your parking with Secure-a-Spot, you'll guarantee a spot in the car park and save money on the normal parking rate. Visit the App Store or Google Play to download GoSecure.

Wilson Parking is the main competitor of Secure Park, for parking in the CBD. Flat rates from $5, evenings and weekends. They have a platinum membership option (convenience only, not a discount card), as well as their own app.

War memorial drive has 10 hour spots, which is a bonus. Cheaper than some of the high rise parks and a nice walk.

Plane Tree Drive is handy to Palace Nova and Rundle Mall. It can't be too expensive because I loathe paying for parking. And you get the bonus of a shady walk through the Botanic Gardens.

Avoid the Wyatt Street Carpark on weekend nights. Had to pay $27.00 for 3 hours on a Friday night.
