State of Origin 3 - Cockroaches heading to Brisbane!

Just need some information on parking please. Can you suggest the best place to park when attending State of Origin 3 at Suncorp? We are going to come up in the afternoon and grab some dinner before the game. I heard we can walk from the CBD to Suncorp - is this true? We don't mind paying for the parking either! Go the Blues!

The closest paid car park for CBD and Suncorp would be King George Square car park (I think). Here's the link: …qld.gov.au/…687

You will be flat out finding street parking as we have a "Lang Park traffic area" around the stadium on game days and that only allows 15 minute parking from midday till 10pm. Here's some information about the parking control areas: …qld.gov.au/BCC:BASE:478682819:pc=PC_2123

I guess another possibility would be Roma Street Parklands. romastreetparkland.com/SiteCollectionDocumen…

Of course, if you have game tickets then public transport transfers are included. Perhaps this is a better option? Depends where you're staying overnight.

Yes no problem walking from the city.

Wasting your time though, you know you will lose again!

I agree about parking in the city (and the Blues losing again!)For dinner before the game head to Caxton St which is a short distance from the ground.There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from and a great atmosphere.
