storing luggage for a day

by anna&kym

Hi, can anyone tell me if there is somewhere to store our luggage when we leave our ship at circular quay? Or perhaps at the train station? We have the whole day in Sydney before we need to go to the airport. At this stage we plan to catch the train to the airport, probably cheaper than a taxi??! Thank you for all suggestions. Anna&Kym

Hi - Central station which is about a half hour walk from Circular Quay - or 10 minutes by train - used to have left luggage storage but doesn't any more.

There is a private business on the ground floor of the station which offers this service now.

And here is a link for other places to leave luggage near Circular Quay. Dymovks is closeish to the Quay.

The dedicated train to the airport is expensive - $11 each - you may find it not too much dearer and way easier to catch a cab. Not in rush hour though.

I left my luggage at Central station which was then easy to catch the airport train from there.The station has lifts too.The trains run often and are on time.
Be careful if you decide to take a taxi as Sydney traffic can be bedlam--if so give yourself plenty of time to get to the airport.The train to Sydney Central is easy from Circular Quay and once again lifts and escalators are available.

Thank you both for that info. We`ll be heading to the airport for a 6pm flight so i think the train might be a better option to avoid traffic hassles.

Travel Tips for Sydney

Sydney Aquarium & Latino Festival

by Ankhesenamun

...go to the Sydney Aquarium. Of course, only if you like undersea world. It is really great there! You can see Sharks, Fishes and other sea-animals. If you like beaches, go to the Bondi Beach. It is one of the best beaches i´ve ever seen! Dancing Salsa in some latin Bar in Darling Harbour! It was on the latino festival in Sydney. Photo: a part of me, dancing salsa...this perfect photo made my friend Ivana...

Indigenous Sydney. (Aboriginal heritage).

by Openseas

Indigenous Sydney

The Indigenous people lived in Australia, for at least 40,000 – 45,000 years before James Cook discovered the East Coast of Australia.

It is thought at least one million Aborigines lived in Australia, and there were approximately 300 languages spoken, not to mention their many dialects. So, really Australia was already a Nation and a fully populated country. Most of the Aborigines lived through various parts of Australia, and clans were important to their everyday existence, they were not always nomadic but used their skills in hunting.

There are three main language groups, the Dharug, Kuringai and Dhararawal in Sydney. They belonged to many clans including the Gadigal, Wangal, Wallumedegal, Boromedegal, Gamaragal, Borogegal, Birrabirragal and Gayamaygal. In Sydney alone, Sydney Harbour and the surrounding suburbs and through our national parks, we have more indigenous art than any city in the world.

The word Aboriginal is an English word the Europeans used to describe our earliest inhabitants. The aborigines are proud people, which are shown through their flag and knowledge of their beloved country and homeland. The Aboriginal flag is red, black and yellow which now hang proudly in unison with the Australian National flag.

On May the 26th 1998 the Government recognized and formally apologized to the Aboriginal people and a National Sorry Day was celebrated with community activities and the signing of "sorry books". A day that our indigenous people accepted and a step was made towards reconciliation and admission of responsibility from the Australian Government , whom removed over 80,000 Aboriginal children from their parents and beloved tribes.

Gift from the GODS..

by Gypsystravels

As we were strolling around the Botanic Gardens/Domain we came across what I thought was a very interesting statue. Turns out this is a silt-drum used in the island of Ambrym Vanatu for what is said to be for "creating rythms for dance, summoning villagers for meetings and transmitting messages".

As you can read on one of the pics, it was presented by the Australia Friends of Vanatu. I had a good time behaving like a child hiding behind the drum and being photographed.

Tipping is NOT done

by cjg1

It took me half way through my second stay to finally learn this practice. Tipping here is not done. Sure its appreciated but you come off as a tourist more than your appearance and styles.

Seriously folks. Its not needed and not done here. Use the extra money to have another pint or pay for the ever increasingly expensive hotels.

Packing List

by Lloydi

Get a plug adaptor. Australian plugs are damn strange looking things. Well, they are to me ;-) But anyway, the point is that I found it quite difficult to get an adaptor in Sydney, although I eventually tracked one down in a hardware store in George Street. Cross it off your list early on ...
