Located on Australia’s south-east coast in New South Wales, Sydney is one of the world’s premier tourism and major event destinations.


Sydney is easily accessible via the Pacific Highway from the north and the Hume Highway and the Federal Highway from the south. Driving from Canberra takes just over three hours, from Melbourne it takes just under 10 hours and from Brisbane about 10 hours. Cars are readily available for hire throughout Sydney.


Buses arrive in Sydney regularly at the Bus Depot located at Central Railway Station. Most bus companies have ticketing offices located at the Bus Depot.


Interstate and intercity trains arrive regularly at Central Railway Station. CityRail trains have a large network across Sydney which run from approximately 4am until after midnight on most lines.


Sydney's main airport (domestic and international) is located at Botany Bay, a 15 minute drive south of the Sydney CBD.  A secondary airport for light commercial and private use is located at Bankstown, which is 40 minutes from the CBD.

Airport transfers are readily available from the airport and there is a regular train service straight to the city.
