Central or Sydney Terminal is NSW's main terminal for intercity trains and a suburban railway hub as well as the terminus for the Dulwich Hill light rail line. It is a beautiful building with a old-world canopy roof over the waiting area. There are pedestrian tunnels and stairs everywhere, however a new navigation system has been implemented to get you...

The grand old sandstone building set high above Railway Square and George Street covers the Country Trains platforms and the Concourse (big, high-ceilinged open area) and light rail. It is worth seeing. It has some good architectural and decorative features and an area dedicated to railway history. The lower area of the station accommodates trains going to suburban stations, and... More

It is a landmark of Sydney, and not a specially made tourist attraction or building. Several times I traveled through this point when catching my trains to Regional or Local Destinations. It serves the function as Train Destination or Service Interchange between one line to the other lines, or to the other modes of transportation, or in the special event,... More

Central Station is one of the main train stations in Sydney. It is also a stop on the Hop On Hop Off bus tour, so you ay want to take a quick look at the building. Nice old structure with beautiful architecture.

Nothing particularly special about Central Station. I always find it annoying when visiting Sydney how outrageously expensive it is to take a regular train to the airport as compared with other stations in the vicinity. Blatant profiteering and an example of why you should never sell your airports to investment banks.

We purchased the MultiPass which included 6 days and transportation for buses, ferries, trains, etc. At $63 it was a great value for us.

Having travelled all over the world, I can honestly say that few train stations could be better than this one. It's very well laid out so you can find your way with ease, everything is well marked and if you're not sure the staff are friendly and helpful. For interstate trains and local "hopping around" it's easy to use and... More

We were lucky our hotel was next to the central station. You can get to anywhere easily from this station. The trains are always on time and didn't experience any delay in the schedule. I was also impressed with the quality and design of Sydney's modern trains. But the problem is the cost of public transportation. I live in Melbourne... More
