Its huge, rows and rows of rail lines lol. Might just be my personal opinion, but the place appears to be a bit disorganized.

Travelled from the city to the airport via train from Central Station recently. The building is more interesting from the outside than the inside where there is much hustle and bustle of commuters making their way to and from platforms. Not really a tourist attraction and not that easy to navigate for the uninitiated. A means to an end!

Seeing Central station listed as an attraction is a little strange. It is, in effect, a massive train station with 26 platforms plus a tram stop on one side and then - as if more options were needed - it is also where various suburban and long haul buses stop AND has taxi ranks on a couple of sides. Effectively... More

I travelled a lot by train, the time spent at Central changing trains, eating a fast meal, reading the local paper, was exactly what you would expect from a world class train station.

Where does one start when it comes to reviewing Central Station in Sydney. To begin, this is NOT a tourist. It is nothing more than a disgusting excuse for what the government deems as a "suitable" public transport facility. 1. Firstly, the services themselves are basically non-existent. There is no-one around whatsoever to ask for help if you need to... More

The station building could be an attraction if some thought was put into it, but over the last hundred years additional platforms have made it look confusing. Easy to get to the airport in less than 15 mins from platform 23 (look for the airplane image on the information screens), North Sydney from platform 16 and city circle trains, including... More

A classic yet elegance hotel . Most of the local doesnt pay for the tickets and just jump over the gantry . Think of doing so but does not have that courage

with so many platforms and exits, central station can be confusing, we found the locals were happy to help when we asked. Central station has evolved over the years. In one of the exits there seems to be old tiling....dating back well over 50 years. "Central" is truly an icon of Sydney.

You can go to about anywhere in local or long-distance from here. Staff are very helpful. I usually took the train from here, and then walked to where I was going. Were some nice shops in there too. As I was there for 9 days, I found it more economical to get a 7 day pass, to save on the... More
