Parking InfringementIf you have received a fine from the Townsville City Council you have a number of payment options.

Pay Online

You can pay your Penalty Infringement Notice (PIN) easily online 24 hours after the infringement was issued.  All infringements must be paid within 28 days of the issue date.

Failure to pay the Penalty Infringement Notice (PIN) by the due date will result in further costs being incurred.  You will be responsible for the costs if by midnight on the 28th day:

  1. You do not make payment; or
  2. Your payment is not honoured by your bank because of any cause not being an error by the Townsville City Council.

PLEASE NOTE: Only full payment is permitted online or over the counter.

How do I know if my Online Payment has been accepted?

A confirmation page with a receipt number will be displayed once you have submitted your payment details and the payment is processed. Make note of this number as it may be required by council as proof of payment should there be any future discrepancies. This receipt number verifies that your payment has been processed successfully. (Tip: write the receipt number on the bill being paid).
