When you’re driving to Perth Airport, it can be a tough decision to figure out where to park. If you’re travelling with a lot of luggage, you may be tempted to park as close to your terminal as possible, whereas if you’re going away for a week or more, you might want to find the best long-term rate available. But how do you know which car parks offer the best rates, and offer the best security measures?
We’ve researched options at Perth Airport and nearby facilities to help you plan your next holiday. Here you’ll find information about rates, services, as well as useful resources.
Official Perth Airport parking options
If you want to park at Perth Airport, you’ll be pleased to discover that you have many options to choose from, with more than 3,000 spaces available for travellers’ cars. Just bear in mind that domestic flights leave from different terminals than international flights, so where you check-in will have some bearing on where you park.

- Short Term Car Park T1
- Short Term Car Park T2
- Short Term Car Park T3/T4
- Long Term Car Park B
- Long Term Car Park C
- Long Term Car Park D

Unofficial Perth Airport parking options
As with other major Australian airports, passengers flying from Perth Airport have the option of using ‘unofficial’ or private airport car parks. Most of the private airport car parks around Perth Airport are family owned and operated businesses that have set up to compete against the high prices of the official airport parking facilities.
These car parks tend to be cheaper, and offer free shuttle bus services to the terminals and back. They’re a little further away from the airport than the on-site options, but make up for the distance by offering low prices and excellent customer service.
The main options for unofficial Perth Airport car parks are:
- Bay Airport Parking
- The Car Port & Spa
- Hamer Airport Parking
- Skypark Valet Parking
- Park & Fly
- Airport Parking 4 Less
Prices start at $23.00 per day (at Bay Airport Parking), and extend to $43.00 for three days, $58.00 for five, and $83.00 for one week. You can expect to save around 40% of the cost of official airport parking, when you select an off-site car park instead, depending on season and any special offers running.
We recommend reading a few online reviews before booking your parking, as these can give you a good indication of the level of service offered and security. It’s always wise to check that the car park has strict security measures in place (CCTV, gated entry, and patrols), and to consider paying a little extra for covered parking. There’s nothing worse than coming back from your holiday to find that your car has suffered hail damage!
