Secured Parking near Hobart Cruise Ship Terminal?

We will on a Princess cruise ship overnighting in Hobart and are considering renting a car for the 2 days.

Are there any secure car parks near the Princess Cruise ship terminal?

The Princess ships usually dock at the eastern side of the docks (Macquarie Docks). It's possible that you would be allowed to park on the docks near the ship by asking the port security people nicely. Speaking in an American accent and having your ship passes will help. :)

Alternatievely, two of the hotels near that area (Grand Chancellor and Collins) have secure underground parking which may be suitable. The Collins's parking is privately managed so there should be no need to be a guest there. Or the city's Argyle Street multi-storey carpark is within walking distance. It's locked at night.

However, there is very little risk to the vehicle if it's left in Hunter Street or in the carparks on the docks overnight anyway. That's what I do if I'm staying there overnight. Parking in the street in front of Henry Jones Art hotel in Hunter Street is free from about 5 30pm until about 8am.
