Nicholson St Specialist Centre, Greenslopes
Paid parking is available at the hospital in the multi-story carpark directly adjacent to the specialist centre. The entrances to the carpark are via the main entrance on Newdegate St and from Nicholson St. Free street parking on the street is available nearby but these spaces are very popular and sometimes difficult to obtain.
If you are catching public transport, a free hospital shuttle bus runs continuous loops from the Greenslopes bus station.
