Experience Sydney via train this summer. Finding your way around Sydney

If you're new to Sydney and are feeling overwhelmed with the sheer size of the exciting city, don't be afraid! There are so many ways you can get around the streets and familiarise yourself with the suburbs.

If you're spending lots of time in the inner city, it makes sense to get holiday accommodation close by. Mantra on Kent is located in the heart of the CBD, meaning you can walk to bars, restaurants, cafes and shops in the area. It's also got 24-hour access so you can safely come and go from your apartment at your leisure - perfect for those late night pub visits!

Trains

Train stations are located throughout central Sydney and can take you across the heart of the city and out to suburbs such as Bondi Junction. Services start at 4am and run until about midnight on most lines, and all stations have 24 hour ticket vending machines so you'll never be caught out.

Buses

Buses travel throughout the city and its outer areas almost 24 hours per day. Many of the routes are prepaid only to cut down on time spent administering tickets, so you'll need to be prepared with a ticket before you board the bus. You can find ticket outlets all over the city, including near bus stops, so you shouldn't have a problem with this.

Centre city bus stops close to Mantra on Kent are located at Circular Quay, Wynyard and Central Stations. Visitor information kiosks can be found at the Queen Victoria Building.

Cycling

Combine your transit with fitness by cycling your way around the city. The Sydney government encourages people to use bikes and is building a 200km bike network to help cyclists safely navigate their way around the city. Free Cycling in the City and Bike Maintenance courses are held by the City of Sydney each week.
