Tips for using CellOPark
If you require support for the CellOPark app or website, or you wish to query parking fees, please dial 1300 CellOPark or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your session is active when you see the timer start. Don’t forget to stop your session when you finish.
Check your registration details are correct if you use more than one vehicle.
In all day zones, you have ten minutes before you are charged the All Day rate. This allows you time to correct errors such as starting a session with the incorrect registration details.
If you park in a daily zone or a capped zone, your parking session will be capped at the daily rate, even if you forget to stop the app.
If you forget to stop the app in the 4-hour parking zone (Yellow zone) your parking session will be capped at $2.25 for the day.
If the app is not working or your phone is not compatible with the app, please contact CellOPark on (07) 5646 5222 to start and stop a session.
