Get around with
Public Transit

Despite its vast size, it’s easy to get around Sydney. The city’s public transport network extends to its outer reaches. A MyMulti Day Pass costs $22 and buys unlimited travel for the day by bus, train, and ferry. The city and its surrounding areas are easily explored on foot, and most boast scenic spots to rest along the way. While driving is possible, Sydney’s roads get fairly congested. During peak times, traffic can double the time of commutes. We suggest that you make at least one trip by ferry. It’s a stellar way to appreciate the beauty of the harbor and explore the other side of Sydney—no matter which side you started on.
