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

clean, on time, modern rail cars and easy for tourists to use. great way to get around. Save the taxi costs and use this service to connect from downtown out to the airport - just 16 dollars for the ticket

With tickets available from sellers at windows, or from vending machines (as long as you know where you are & going).. this station is well set out. The ticketing system looks like it's changing to "The Opal" card, a swipe card, where you store money/credits. Similar to Melbourne's Myki. So once this happens, I assume you just have your Opal...

Central station is the major city train station linking the north, south and west of Sydney to the rural country and interstate train lines. Nearby Restaurants and shopping Worth a look

It is not that attractive and unlike many major cities, the main station is not "centrally" located. It doesn't have the appeal of say Flinders Street in Melbourne or say Grand Central in New York.

It's a big station (for me) and sometimes we got confused in the station. We passed it everyday. Nothing much. Since our hotel is between Redfern Stn and Central Stn, we usually walk. There's a few attraction nearby such as the Paddy's Market.

Easily accessed, CBD located, small and simple Central Train station with near by (a block away) even smaller Central Bus station. Ambiance is not part of the description, Food or Coffee services are limited however if you look to get transportation from one place to another it will do with good schedules and reasonably inexpensive comfortable rides.

while it is just a train station, it actually connects sydney to the rest of Australia. if a traveller is lost, he/she can always refer back to central station to connect to the right route. as a station, it is huge! and staff are everywhere to help, and they try to keep it as clean as possible around the clock....
