This map contains the Questacon building and outlines the two car parks closest. There is a small car park directly next to the Questacon building that contains 4 hour parking, and there is a larger car park further north containing 4 hour parking in the first two rows and all day parking beyond that. Both car parks can be accessed from the street Parkes Place West.

Paid parking is available alongside the building, accessible from Parkes Place, with additional parking further along Parkes Place in the large car park near the lake.

The smaller car park adjacent to Questacon contains only 4 hour parking. The larger car park (further down Parkes Place West) contains 4 hour parking (in the first two rows) and all day parking in the remaining rows.
