At times during peak periods such as Easter or Christmas, the long-term car park may be full. Signs will direct you to an alternate secure parking place.

Alice Springs Airport has installed shade structures in our Long Term Car Park, providing you with a covered option when parking your car for an extended period.

The panels are connected to our Solar Power electricity grid and are easily damaged as a consequence we are unable to accept long vehicles or vehicles higher than 2.3 metres into the car park. This includes cars with trailers or cars with caravans.

Space has been made available in the Public (Western) section of the Short Term Car Park to cater for longer vehicles or cars with trailers or caravans.  The daily or 24 hour fee for the Short Term Car Park applies to this car park.
