We stayed near station and went to buy food in where the old hotel used to be 3 food outlets in there which seemed clean but the surroundings,floors,walls,tables and chairs were disgusting,it was like a 3rd world country,the outside of the station was full of rubbish and bins were hard to find plus the smell was like a urinal
There were 2 levels of platforms and we couldn't find the lift,one of our ladies had bad knees so it took her a while and pain to get up down the stairs,the staff at the ticket venue were helpful and pleasant
they need to divert some of the fire works and mardigras moneys to clean and fix this old icon up as it is a meeting place for tourists coming and going to all destinations

Good location to jump about town with frequent bus connections. If you are visiting Sydney, I suggest you speak to one of the attendants at the ticket window before buying anything. We purchased a MyBus pass initially at a convenience store when we arrived. We found out about much better bus/rail deals at the station and could have saved some $$$$.

Central Station is okay but not great if you compare it to other countries like New York and the UK. But it will get you where you need to go.

I was catching the train to Melbourne with a friend. Very helpful rail staff showed us where to go to catch our train and offered to pull my suitcase.

Lovely looking exterior and well maintained for a train station. You can get 2 kinds of staff, great or most unhelpful. Aside from that, its a train station.
