Caravans, Boats and Trailers

We encourage you to park your caravan, boat or trailer on private property. Parking these types of vehicles on a public road can impact other road users and members of the public.

Parking your caravan, boat or trailer on a public road is usually ok for a short amount of time, but please note:

You can report a caravan, boat or trailer that has been left in a public place for more than 28 days to Council. See our Abandoned and Unattended Vehicles page for more information.

What is a heavy or long vehicle?

Some caravans, motor homes and boats may be considered heavy vehicles and / or long vehicles.

Heavy vehicle means a vehicle with a GVM (gross vehicle mass) of more than 4.5 tonnes.

Long vehicle means a vehicle that, together with any load or projection, is 7.5 metres long, or longer.

Heavy vehicles and long vehicles generally cannot be parked on a street in a built-up area for more than one hour.
