Getting to Herston: Car


Herston campus is at the junction of Bowen Bridge Road and Herston Road. Most University buildings are located on Herston Road.

From Brisbane's CBD, the most direct route to Herston is through Fortitude Valley along Gipps Street. From St Lucia campus, Herston campus is best accessed from the Inner-City Bypass.


Parking around Herston and is extremely limited. There are three privately run car parks in the grounds of the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital, but pricing can be steep.

Surrounding suburban streets offer some short-term parking options, but be aware Brisbane City Council parking inspectors are on regular patrol.

Visit UQ Parking for more information on UQ-run parking, including maps, fees and charges.

Because car spaces are limited, we strongly encourage using public transport if possible.
