So you’re planning on viewing the Brisbane Riverfire extravaganza close to the action this year, but you’re still unsure on how you’ll be getting there?
There’s public transport, which will likely be chokkas and the echo of crying children up past their bedtime, or there’s the option of a cab or an Uber, which are likely to have lengthy wait times and inflated prices. We usually try and gauge what will be the lesser of two evils for our situation, but not this year!
There’s a new option this year that we would usually totally overlook; parking in the City. Given that you’ve got a designated driver, we’ve got the sneaky Brisbane Riverfire parking specials for you to park near the action for as little as $5.
Secure Parking, which operates multiple carparks in the Brisbane CBD are offering customers savings of more than 40 per cent on normal parking rates if they pre-book their parking through the Secure-a-Spot website.
