There are over 1,000 free carparks onsite. Given the outdoor nature of Bethlehem and the abundance of parking, more often than not, you’ll be able to park close to (or right outside of) your favourite store. During peak periods extra parking may also be available on the grassed area at the Countdown entrance on Bethlehem Road.
Parents’ with Prams Parking
For your convenience and safety we have dedicated parents’ with prams parking available. These are located conveniently, outside of the bathrooms/parents opposite Wild South, next to the children’s playground, opposite Paper Plus and outside the Coffee Club.
For those with a mobility pass, we have more than 30 mobility parks conveniently located around Bethlehem Town centre. You’ll find mobility parking outside Countdown, The Coffee Club, opposite Paper Plus, outside Smith’s, Gateway Games, Options, Kmart and the Orchard. There is also mobility parking available to the side of Dilworth hearing for the use of patients and visitors to our medical hub (Dilworth, Pathlab and Chadwick Health). The centre is a flat site designed with wide footpaths and is therefore wheelchair friendly.
Parking Enforcement Services
Whilst parking at Bethlehem is free of charges, to help ensure that car parks are free for customers to use, we are now monitoring carpark use. This is simply designed to prevent misuse by all-day parkers and ensure easy access for our valued shoppers.
From 9am – 5.30pm, Monday – Friday, there is a 3 hour time limit which applies to the majority of parking at the centre.
There are some 15 minute and 60 minute parks located in locations with high traffic, or short stop requirements ie: Chemists, doctors etc.
Countdown Supermarket car parking is limited to 90 minutes.
Cars parked in accessible car parks will also be checked to make sure they have the required permit displayed.
If you are unsure about the time limit that applies to your car park, simply look out for the signs nearby.
