Onsite Parking Options at Mackay (MKY)
For a small (yet perfectly formed) airport, Mackay is blessed by an abundance of onsite parking facilities — there are outstanding options available to suit every traveller.
The three official facilities available are the Covered Car Park, Short Term Car Park and Long Term Car Park and each has its own excellent advantages.
Put simply, the Covered Car Park does exactly what it says on the tin – keeps your vehicle protected from the elements thanks to cyclone-rated shelter from the sun and rain, in premium covered spaces with a generous 20% more space per parking bay. It’s super-close to the terminal and is located opposite Ibis Mackay.
Meanwhile, you’ll find the Short Term Car Park at the second entrance when rolling in from Jack Connor Drive, right opposite the car rental drop off/pick up zone. Just a couple of minutes from the terminal, your first 15 minutes parking are totally free and it offers excellent value for money when you’re taking a short-term break.
Next, you’ve got the absolute legend that is the Long Term Car Park. Located only a few minutes stroll from the terminal, this uncovered facility also provides the first 15 minutes parking gratis, is a brilliant option for budget adventurers and suits those escaping for long weekends in neighbouring cities, as well as those heading further afield for a few weeks or even months.
As you’d expect, all official onsite parking facilities are safe secure, and designed with passenger convenience in mind first and foremost.
Parking is available for as little as $5 (depending on duration) and you can save up to 40% on arrive and park rates by pre-booking online ahead of your departure date.
If you do decide to pay on arrival, Mackay Airport Parking’s Tap, Park & Go system utilises the latest tech to facilitate contactless credit card payment for all car parks – simply present your card to the reader when arriving and leaving the car park and you’re all squared up. The system accepts Diners Club, American Express, MasterCard and Visa.
Alternatively, Automatic Pay Stations have been placed in covered areas on the pedestrian walkways next to the terminal and Ibis Mackay – these accept the aforementioned credit cards and cash too.
