Temporary extra parking in Batemans Bay CBD

Extra parking will be available in the Batemans Bay CBD from mid-morning today.

Eurobodalla Council has opened up one of the football fields at Mackay Park for free all-day parking throughout January.

As people flock to the popular waterfront area, Council said the overflow parking was needed.

“The Bay is incredibly busy and that’s fantastic, but parking really is at a premium,” a spokesperson said.

“The temporary car park will make it easier for people to get into town and enjoy the great food, fun, and shopping on offer, all the while staying Covid-safe of course.”

The council is encouraging CBD workers to make use of Mackay Park, freeing up parking spaces right in town for shoppers and diners.

To access the overflow car park, turn west off the highway at the Beach Road intersection. Signs will be in place. The main shopping precinct is a short walk away.

The car park is free and will open every day until Australia Day.

Council will then set about repairing the field in plenty of time for football season.
