“connects Sydney to Australia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

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. maps are everywhere and cafes are also available with other facilities.

“great train station!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Central Station is the beginning/end of many of the train lines that service the Sydney area and NSW. The building is big and well signed. The ticket agents are very helpful and very courteous. There are a few fast food restaurants and shops as well. The public toilets are well maintained and clean. It is much like Penn Station NYC with commuter trains, light rail, and out of area trains converging. It is easy to transfer to other lines and get around the city or go up to the Central Coast without a hassle or getting lost.

“Just a big train station useful if catching a country train”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

While it has a lot of history and the clock tower is almost noteworthy, I wouldnt send anyone here unless off to catch a train or meet someone. It does have the sorts of amenities one needs at a railway station without exceeding minimum requirements overmuch. There's fast food and newspapers, a bar f you're held up waiting for a train that looks lie it needs a refurb, and a cafeteria that isn't any better than the best take always along eddy avenue entrance.

Overall, it's a railway station and so if you are there for it's main purpose, it serves it's purpose.
