There is free street parking a short distance from the School of Physics (e.g. down Willis St, Willis Ln, Forsyth St, and Middle St) though the very closest street parks are only 1-2hr zones. There is plenty of parking available in UNSW e.g. in the parking building accessible off Barker st., at around $15/day. These "pay and display" parking areas are monitored and rules are strictly enforced.
Car parking vouchers will be available. Stay tuned for more details.
