How to travel around Sydney

Most of the attractions in Sydney are in the central business district (CBD) or around the harbour. If you are staying in the downtown area, you can walk to most of the attractions. The exceptions include Bondi and Manly, which are surfing suburban areas at the south and north areas of Sydney Heads. To explore these attractions, there are plenty of public transportation options you can choose. If you purchase the Opal card to get to and from the airport, you can use the same card for public transportation throughout the city.


The extensive rail network covers most areas within Sydney, and the City Circle network provides you with access to all city stations. Sydney trains are double-deckers and start at Central station moving anti-clockwise.


Buses require prepaid cards from Monday to Friday (you can use an Opal Card) from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. You can purchase them at a convenience store if you do not have an Opal Card. The entire CBD requires prepaid fare from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm; regardless of the day of the week. Most buses run to the North Shore and Northern Beaches if you take them from the York, Carrington, and Clarence Street terminals. To get to Palm Beach, you must take the bus from Stand B.


Travel across the harbour using the Sydney Ferry. Ferries service many of the harbour-side attractions, including the Zoo, Luna Park, Darling Harbour, Manly Beach, and Watsons Bay. All ferries depart from the Circular Quay.

Sydney Light Rail

The light rail system runs from Central station into Chinatown, Haymarket, Darling Harbour, Star City Hotel and Casino, and through the Sydney Fish Market. It continues through the suburbs as well. To ride on this rail, you must use an Opal Card.
