Covid-19 vaccination centre parking

Whanganui District Council is assisting the District Health Board's vaccination roll-out by providing free car parking spaces to those booked in for vaccinations at the Whanganui Wellness and Vaccination Centre (old Warehouse Stationery building at 60, Victoria Avenue). 

There are 8 disability spaces designated for Mobility Card Holders directly to the rear of The Wellness and Vaccination Centre (access via Drews Avenue) and 17 spaces in the St Hill Street off-street carpark directly across the road from the Royal Whanganui Opera House. Parking in the designated spaces is free for up to one hour for Covid-19 vaccination patients from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Sunday.

Kerbside parking

There are 615 kerbside metered parking spaces and 1118 time-restricted areas around the central city area. These are monitored to ensure regular turnover and availability of spaces. Infringers are ticketed, fined and followed up. Suburbs are serviced on demand.

Paid parking is between 8.00am and 5.30pm on weekdays and Saturdays. The Parking Services team patrol on a regular basis, including Saturdays.

Off-street parking

All off-street car parks are sealed, marked, have a minimum of security lighting and are signposted. St Hill Street, Ingestre Street, Drews Avenue and Moutoa Quay off-street carparks have pay-and-display machines installed. The pay-and-display carparks have the option of using the ParkMate app for payment.
