There are many good reasons to look for and follow the instructions on parking signs in the City of Burnside.

As a resident or a visitor, you will be helping yourself and others by reducing traffic congestion. Along with improving road safety, letting buses, service and emergency vehicles navigate our streets more easily and effectively, as well as improving the overall look and feel of the local environment. Not only that, you will also avoid the fines that are applicable to various parking offences under the Australian Road Rules and help us help you with better management of our parking and traffic flow.

The City of Burnside has developed this Parking Brochure(PDF, 1MB)  - a straightforward guide to safe, sensible and thoughtful parking in an attempt to educate the community on the various parking regulation's that exist within our community.
