    The color coded travel passes went away in 2010 and were replaced with the My series of tickets. MyMulti replaced these specifically and allow you to travel on all city buses, all state ferries and light rail while also allowing City Rail within three zones. These zones create the MyMulti1 for the most restrictive and MyMulti2 as an intermediate...

    Sydney Transportation

    When I get into a place in the morning after an overnight flight, I like to do something that will keep me awake until a reasonable hour to go to bed on the new schedule. Outdoors if possible. Sometimes we take the hop on hop off bus and ride up on the top in the fresh air. But someone told me that if I took the Manley ferry over to Manley and...

    Sydney Transportation

    We arrived in Sydney by plane once and departed from Sydney twice. Each time we flew QANTAS and each time I asked for wheelchair assistance. We arrived early in the morning after an overnight flight from LAX. When we disembarked, one of the flight attendants was wheeling my 'wheelchair' and then she handed over to another lady who was dressed...

  • Monorail

    Sydney Transportation

    UPDATE - Sadly the Monorail is to close shortly and then dismantled, so hurry, hurry before it all goes for good. An excellent way to see the City of Sydney, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, the Chinese Gardens of Friendship and so much more is from the comfort of the elevated Sydney monorail. My suggestion is to get on at one of the 8 futuristic...

    Sydney Transportation

    We took a taxi five times in Sydney. Once from the airport to the hotel ($54+ and included several tunnel and freeway tolls). Once from the hotel to go over the Sydney Bridge and then to be dropped off at the Sydney Tower. Once to get home from the Aquarium, once to get from the hotel to the domestic airport (about $38), and the last time was to...

    Sydney Transportation

    Notwithstanding my second picture I recommend this service if your final destination in Sydney is within walking distance of a train station. Catching the train is the fastest way to reach Sydney Airport or to get to the city from the airport. Services run directly to/from the city centre to/from stations located inside the Domestic and...

    We took this tour bus all around Sydney - both routes. It was a bit cold and windy up on the top because it was winter. But we got some great views so it was worth it. We went from Stop 11 Botanic Gardens which was near our hotel for four stops Stop 12 Parliament House Stop13 Hyde Park North Stop 14 Australian Museum to Stop 15 Central Station....

  • Walking

    Sydney Transportation

    We always do a lot of walking in Sydney. It's a very walkable place and you see so much of the city when on foot. My favorite walk is from Potts Point into the Botanical Garden and around Circular Quay to the Rocks. It is a fun walk and we always make some fun discoveries along the way.

    I had purchased the Lonely Planet city map of Sydney, and this was the best thing I could have done for getting around. The map was very up to date, showed all the various modes of transportation, and where to get on and off, and had many of the city highlights pointed out. This made getting around painless and within the hour of getting there we...

  • I rented a so-called "Spacecamper"

    Renting a car is the best way to explore New South Wales !I rented a so-called "Spacecamper"it was a funny experience with some disadvantages of that car:1) NO moskito-nets at the windows, although their brochures told me something like that in advance. The only part of the car that has moscito-nets is the extra "Rucksack" that you can fix at the...

    Trains are in Australia not really an important means of transport for local people or tourists and you will find a lot of trainlines that are used only for transportation of goods and there are only a few trains per day or week. Lots of trainstations are un-manned, and you just might find a ticket-machine and a place, where you can speak with a...

  • New South Wales by Tour Bus

    New South Wales is a large and diverse area, which can best be covered by tour bus. Since obviously everyone has different ways to travel, some may disagree with this statement. The reason I believe this is the best way, is that each of the tour operators that drive this bus are trained to give you history on each part of the trip, and stop at...

  • The Ferry from Manly Beach, Sydney

    The Ferries around the harbour are just the very best way to go anywhere or to just relax and watch the boats go by. Going by ferry is the most relaxing way to see the harbour or visit Manly or the Zoo. The feeling of travelling by ferry is hard to describe because it is usually quite calm and therefore suits those who feel like fresh air and...

    Since New South Wales is such a large state, unless you plan to stick to the main tourist route along the coast, I think you'd be well advised to have your own transport, so you can get off the beaten track and travel more conveniently.Here's a map to give you a better idea of NSW.
