Parking at Newcastle Airport NTL

So you’re flying from Newcastle Airport (NTL) soon? It’s a great launchpad for chilling out in Cairns, soaking up some rays in Sunshine Coast, meeting family in Melbourne or reuniting with mates in Adelaide. Driving to NTL is a top idea and we’ve left no stone unturned to bring you the best parking options – plus some savvy advice on eating, drinking and staying comfortable during your pre-flight period.

And if you’ve got some time to spare before flying, there’s lots to see and do in this lovely New South Wales city. First off, you can’t miss the historical attraction Nobbys Lighthouse. Built in 1857, it still guides ships safely to harbour and sits on a rocky promontory which was once a sacred island for the Mulubinba people. If you enjoy scenic strolls meanwhile, Bathers Way Coastal Walk is a 5km trail from Nobbys Headland to Glenrock Reserve and if you keep your eyes peeled along the way, you might even see dolphin pods frolicking in the waves below. And if you fancy splashing around yourself, The Bogey Hole is a dinky ocean pool constructed by convict labour in 1820. It’s best to visit at low tide as it can be a little tricky getting down the stairs to the pool – but when you do finally immerse yourself, it’s one of the most refreshing swims you’ll have in your life! Last but not least, if you like wildlife, you’ll love the small town of Morisset where, in a park in the grounds of Morisset Hospital, you can see very friendly wild kangaroos.

Compare parking at Newcastle Airport

There’s lots of great onsite and offsite parking at NTL and it’s just one of many fantastic features of an awesome airport with an interesting history.

Newcastle Airport’s history stretches back to 1947, when it started life as Williamtown Civilian Airport – with a very basic shed building serving as a hangar and a rudimentary airstrip. Hitting a peak of 1.28 million annual passengers in the past few years, it now works with carrier partners like Jetstar, QantasLink, and Virgin Australia, with daily direct flights to the likes of Cairns, Canberra, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Sunshine Coast. Contributing $1.16 billion to the New South Wales coffers, it’s an economic powerhouse that’s here to stay.

What parking is there at Newcastle Airport?

There’s plenty of good parking at Newcastle Airport (over 2000 spaces in total) and as well as onsite options, it’s sometimes worth having a quick look at comparison sites to weigh up offsite deals too. For example, Looking4Parking offers offsite NTL parking with trusted provider Air Travel Parking – hop on a shuttle bus from this secure facility and you’ll be at departures in just over 10 minutes.

Now let’s lay out your official NTL parking options.


If you’re a long-term traveller who want to fly with peace of mind, the Premium parking lot is a good option. Your vehicle is protected from the elements in this covered lot and it’s just one minute’s stroll from the terminal via covered walkway. Charges are accrued on a flat daily rate basis and there are plenty of disabled spaces – for speed and convenience, Premium parking is hard to beat.

Short stay

There are actually two short stay car parks at NTL and they’re a top pick when you’re jetting off for a weekend or a little longer. Located close to the terminal, these uncovered parking lots have ample disabled parking spaces, family parking spaces and are also suitable for pick ups and drop offs. When you want no hassle parking at Newcastle, this ticks pretty much every box.

Long stay 1

You’ll find Long stay 1 parking across from the car rental pick-up/drop off area, on the other side of Williamstown Drive. It’s a little further from the terminal but offers great value when you’re away on a vacation or business trip that’s a little longer.

Long stay saver

This car park is the furthest from the NTL terminal, but it’s still only a 7-minute walk or comfy free shuttle bus away. If you’re a thrifty traveller, there’s no other official, onsite option that offers such good value and this secure outdoor option is suitable for disabled travellers too. If you want to park your motorbike, please use a designated space – bikes shouldn’t be left on any other areas at the airport.

As you can see, whether you’re flying solo, off on a romantic weekend, travelling with kids, elderly rellies or a group of mates, there’s a Newcastle Airport parking option that’s perfect for you. Parking is on a drive-up basis only at the moment (with online options coming soon) but if you want to check your budget, there’s a handy car parking calculator on the official NTL website.

Please note that hourly parking rates apply if you’re stowing your vehicle for less than a day. If your car’s still parked after midnight on any day, daily rates apply thereafter.

Facilities at Newcastle Airport

Whether you’re spending the amount of pre-flight time you predicted at NTL or a little longer than expected (delays are rare, but they do happen), you’ll definitely be cosy, comfy and well taken care of.

For starters, there’s free Wi-Fi throughout the terminal to check your emails, snap those obligatory selfies and post them on your socials. If you need to draw cash, there are three ATMs in the terminal – two in departures and one in arrivals. And you’ll find luggage trolleys outside departures and arrivals as well as in most car parks. There’s a small fee for using trolleys that’s payable by credit card (a portion of which is reimbursed when you return the trolley to a bay).

If you’re new (or not so new) parents stressing about nappy changes and feeding, don’t. There’s a dedicated parents’ room opposite Gate 2 in departures and it has a baby nursing chair and changing facilities. You’ll also find baby change facilities and nappy bins in disabled toilets in arrivals, departures, international departures and check-in. If you need a wheelchair please request this in advance from your airline or ask a uniformed airport employee – they’ll be happy to help.

So how does NTL stack up when you’re hungry? Not bad at all, as it happens. At Nine Bays Espresso in arrivals, you’ll enjoy a caffeine boost from delicious local Sprocket coffee and satisfy your sweet tooth with terrific pastries. For something a little more high-end, Valley & Vine offers gourmet meals perfectly paired with Hunter Valley wines, while Broughton & Bay is all about laid-back dining, freshly poured beers, pub grub and stunning runway views. And if you’ve got a hankering for chicken wings, spicy wraps and even delicious breakfast buns (all served quickly), don’t miss Red Rooster.

And if you don’t have time to stop and sit down for a meal, pop into News Travels. In this fine emporium, you’ll find daily papers, glossy magazines, bestselling paperbacks, snacks, drinks and travel essentials. If you’re travelling in from out of town, there are several good hotels reasonably near the airport too – try the Mercure Newcastle Airport, Bull ‘n’ Bush Hotel Motel, Sleepy Hill Motor Inn, or Colonial Terrace Motor Inn.

And that’s us done and dusted! Wherever you’re flying from NTL, have a fantastic time.
