After the recent NSW Coles / SMH debacle I got to thinking about the carpark height clearance issue which effectively rules me out of shopping, and spending my hard earned, at certain places. I've had dramas in all kinds of 1.8m underground carparks (the City of Perth council chambers, Grove Plaza Cottesloe, Red Cross Blood Bank etc to name just a few) and thought that on a positive note I'd mention one that is 4x4 'friendly' for a lifted GU.

The brand spanking new Woolies on the corner of Stock Rd and Leach Hwy Melville (WA) has a comfortable 2300mm O/H clearance. Good work architects. Maybe there's a subtle change in thinking quietly occuring (or maybe it was cheaper than carting in fill sand!)

Any others?

COME ON!!! ARE THERE ANY OTHERS?

Melville is 3434.13 kms from my place.

And knowing my Mrs. when we finally get there, she'll pick the slow checkout lane.

Foodland in Peterborough doesnt have a roof for its carpark. So do your shopping here. Also get a local 5cents a litre discount voucher if you spend more than 40 dollars. Only about 1000km from your place :o)

Willie, obviously you like the 37 kilometer plus car parks too. Just like the more than 5 (million) stars accommodation, only in car parks. Will save a spot for yours when you next come this way.

Camp oven lunch today, to get the rest of the family involved. I will leave your fire alone mate, just have ours. LOL
Cheers,

Burnside Shopping centre in Adelaide has a few 4Wd only parking spaces, that are a bit larger than the normal ones. Not underground just bigger size.

Garden City shopping centre in Brisbane has a very high ceiling. Accomodates an F250 in most places. Only restricted by turning circle. Ceiling must be over 3m in some places.

Bilbo, I noticed part of the Coles one at Katoomba that all the fuss was about was like that too, but heaps more than 37 kilometres actually. Even Gob could park there.

Just as an aside, in Dublin there is a new tunnel on the main road from the port to the city. The tunnel was designed to be too low to take containers through so they had to remove some more rock from the floor to get trucks and containers in. It was originally all designed so Dublin could participate in the wealth of Europe. Heaven help their car parks eh?

JohnR,

Yeah, but yer gotta make allowances ( about 3.0 mtrs I'd say) for the Irish!!

Footloose - The "Wiluna Burger"!! That ranks (literally) alongside "Leonora Fish n Chips" and the "Laverton Steak Sandwich". All great when you've been bush fer about 2 months,,,,,,,,,,,but only then.
