A range of parking options exists at all of our facilities. 

Base Hospital car parking

With Ballarat Base Hospital's multi-deck car park temporarily closed from Monday 2 October 2023 to allow for expansion works, a Free Park & Ride service will be available from the City Oval for visitors to the hospital. 

Patients and visitors to the hospital are also welcome to park at the City Oval and walk the 800 metres (about a 10-minute walk) or continue to park in surrounding streets (parking restrictions apply).

The Free Park & Ride service will be available from 6am to just after 11pm every 15-20 minutes throughout the day, with the frequency increasing to continuous loops during peak periods (6.15am – 9.15am and 2pm-6pm).

The following drop off / pick up points at the hospital will be used:

  • Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre (BRICC) entry, located on Sturt Street, from 6am to 6pm; and
  • Gardiner Pittard (GP) foyer entry, located on Drummond Street, from 6pm to 11pm. 
  • Visitors to the hospital can be dropped off at the GP foyer entry in Drummond Street upon request. 

Construction works are expected to take 10 months, resulting in about 800 car parks at the hospital.

We acknowledge that these upcoming works may inconvenience the community including our staff. We appreciate your patience during this time as we endeavour to balance the impacts of construction and deliver more parking as part of this vital upgrade to our hospital.
