lane cove

Hi

We are staying with relative for 5 nights in november (13th to 18th).

Just wanted to understand my transport options to the tourist areas.

Does sydney have a good subway or intercity train system?

Thanks in advance

Kamal

Your train options are pretty hopeless from lane cove (i used to live there so i was frustrated by this frequently!) The bus options are fantastic though.

131500.com.au (there is an iphone app as well) finds your location and you tell it where you want to go and when you want to go there and it combines all the sydney public transport options to give you the bests results.

Lane cove is a good mix of suburbia and proximity to the city. The local pub does a good meal as well! (longueville hotel....firenze fries!)

If your relative could drop you at Chatswood, Artarmon (not every train stops there) or St Leonards , there would be frequent city trains.

One bus tip.......if you visit Manly (usually visitors go by ferry from Circular Quay to Manly and return same way) you could return to Lane Cove by bus - the bus actually goes to Chatswood, but passes Lane Cove.

Staying on the north shore I would at least once get off the bus at Nth Sydney, or the train at Milsons Point and walk across the harbour bridge to the city at pedestrian level.

And with trains (not applicable to bus or ferry) if you are buying a regular (non pass) ticket, on weekdays after 9 am or anytime on weekends buying a return ticket is much cheaper than 2 one ways - no such bus or ferry deals.

There is also a special Funday Sunday ticket for unlimited travel for $2.50, IF you are traveling with a related child.

Depend where in Lane Cove but Chatswood adjoins LC. And St Leonards might be closer to other areas of LC. What street is your relative on. Ask them if they ever travel by train and if so from where.

Lane Cove Is a really big suburb bounded by the Lane Cove River, the pacific Highway and Epping Road. None are really close to trains but most areas have some bus service. As an earlier poster said, you can find the nearest bus by going to the website and looking at the journey planner. Surely your relatives who live there will know where the nearest bus stop is?

No stay at Lane Cove would be complete without a visit to the Lane Cove River National Park - one of Sydney's treasures and a place not visited by enough tourists. Whether you like a picnic or a BBQ in the park or a hike through the bush it's worth a visit. A lovely spot for lunch is the Riverside Restaurant at Fullers Bridge. A table overlooking the river out on the terrace on a warm sunny day is a joy. You may get to share the view with one of the local kookaburras who wants to supplement their diet with a share of your lunch. Food's just OK but the setting makes up for it.
