Trucks and Trailers

It is NOT illegal to park a registered trailer or truck on a roadway providing it does not exceed 7.5 metres in length, or has a gross vehicle mass (i.e. the weight of the vehicle plus its maximum load) not exceeding 4,500 kilograms.

A trailer or truck exceeding 7.5 metres in length or exceeding 4,500 kilograms in gross vehicle mass, is not allowed to be parked within a street for longer than one (1) hour at a time.

Note:  The length of the vehicle includes any attachment, therefore a vehicle four (4) metres in length with a four (4) metre trailer attached could only be left parked in a residential street for a maximum period of one (1) hour at a time.


Complaints on illegal trailer or truck parking should be directed to the Police on (03) 5723 0888 in the first instance or Council on (03) 5722 0888.
