There is lots of (Auckland University) day parking in the same building as the conference[https://linux.conf.au/wiki/LCA_FAQ#What_parking_options_are_there_at_the_Venue.3F See the FAQ] for details.
+
 
+
However there is basically no "all week" parking for those driving in from out of town for the whole conference and wanting to leave their car somewhere for the whole week of the conference.  The limited "student parking" that the residences have is all taken by summer students already (confirmed by Auckland University accommodation team 2014-11-17).  All the surrounding streets are time limited parking at least during the day.  There is no known "rent for just one week, at a week rate" parking buildings/locations nearby.
+
 
+
If you are planning on driving from out of town your best option is probably to park in one of the outer suburbs (outside all the parking restrictions) at the start of the week, then take public transport back into the centre (for the university).  Possibly near where a friend, or extended family member lives, so they can check on your car periodically; if you don't know anyone in Auckland maybe you can make a friend on the LCA2015 chat list? :-)
