There are two main areas to park at Adelaide Airport, which include a wide variety of options that take care of both short-term and long-term options. For easy access to the terminal, park your car at the Terminal Car Park, located adjacent to the terminal and good for up to 48 hours. Much cheaper rates can be found at the Long-Term Car Park on the far west side of the terminal, which provides daily rates that dwindle as each day passes. Additional perks include spaces for the disabled as well as a few accepted credit cards, not to mention shuttles for passengers leaving their vehicles at the Long-Term Car Park.


Services at Adelaide Airport are varied, ranging from basic perks to relaxed add-ons. Financial amenities include various ATMs and currency exchanges across each floor, while business services include two VIP lounges as well as free transfers to two nearby hotels; Adelaide Airport Motel and Aviators Lodge. For families, additional services are available like baby care facilities in The Parents Room as well as a children’s play area next to Hudsons Coffee.
