Private Parking Infringement by "Traffic Monitoring Services"

I got a fine from centre management for parking in the carpark at work last night. So bullsh*t, I earn a really crappy retail wage (~$20/hr) and am being slugged $77 because I violated their "terms and conditions". Basically an entire nights wage gone. I admit I should have parked on the street, but the closest spot was a few blocks away and I don't feel comfortable walking that distance alone at midnight.
Because I am 1. poor and 2. a frugal ozbargainer, what is the very worst that can happen if I ignore their infringement/breach of contract notice? Do they actually take people to court? The folks are saying I should pay up but from what I've read, if I do nothing they can't really do a lot apart from send nasty looking letters.
I am in in QLD if that matters and I am not the registered owner of the vehicle.
