Buses are the preferred method of travel for delegates moving between hotels, the conference venue and Sydney Airport. The following information is intended to help delegates find their way to and from places of interest during the conference.

The Central Business District (CBD) of Sydney is bordered to its north by Sydney Harbour and to its south by Sydney Central Railway Station. Central Railway station is the largest station in Sydney and a key bus-train interchange, although 6 other train stations are present within the CBD. These stations are Wynyard, Circular Quay, Town Hall, Martin Place, Museum & St. James.

The University of Sydney is about 2kms south of Central Railway Station.

When speaking to bus drivers and taxi drivers, please be sure to specify Sydney University. The city of Sydney has a number of universities, it is easy to be taken to the wrong one. Maps of Sydney and travel directions can be obtained from most major hotels and the airport.

Taxis in Sydney are quite safe, and may be easily caught at the airport. The cost of a trip by taxi from the airport to a hotel in the CBD would be about $20-30 depending on traffic.

If you have any questions about Sydney please contact the Registration and Local Arrangements Chair, Stuart Perry at


Airport to CBD

The Airport Express Bus Service will take travellers to and from the International and Domestic Terminals of the Airport to hotels in Glebe, the CBD and Kings Cross. The travel time is about 20 to 30 mins. The buses cost $6.50 for a one-way trip and $11.00 for a return ticket (valid for one month). Please remember to tell the driver which city hotel you are staying in, so that he can direct you to your hotel.

Route 300 goes to Circular Quay and most city hotels.
Route 350 goes to Kings Cross and hotels in that area.
Route 352 goes to Glebe/Pyrmont and hotels in that area.
Route 305 goes to Central Station (slower but cheaper, costing about $3.70 - one way).

Delegates staying closer to the University, at St. Paul's College and Broadway University Inn are instructed to get off the bus at Central and catch other bus services to the University. All the above bus routes will stop at Central Station.

A train service between Central Station and the International and Domestic terminals of the airport is also available. The trains come relatively frequently and cost about $10 for a one-way trip. At Central Station, you may change trains to travel to the station within the CBD closest to your hotel.
