Please note that shortly Jupiters Gold Coast will make changes to our carpark: We will shortly be introducing a way-finding system to assist customers in quickly locating a vacant car park space.
We are aiming to have this fully operational by October 1, 2011. Parking will be free for all hotel guests, those dining in restaurants, using bars, playing within the casino or attending a
show or function on the property. This will make sure that our car park remains a benefit solely for our guests. Charges could apply for those that are not genuinely using our facilities
and we will keep you informed on when this will occur. This is part of our commitment to provide a car park which is easily accessible and safe for all guests that choose to enjoy our facilities.
