When in town, spend time in the city with the Harbour Bridge, Sydney Tower Eye, Opera House and Taronga Zoo in your sights and explore the restaurants and small bars, filled with world-recognised cuisines and tipples.
Venture out from the bustle to comb the beaches up and down the coast or head inland for a hike signature snap and Aboriginal tour through the Blue Mountains or any number of National Parks that New South Wales has to offer. Whatever your itinerary, this Sydney travel guide will help you get to Sydney and see, eat and experience everything you need to make your journey a memorable one.
Sydney has an extensive network of trains and buses across the city and to surrounding areas and nearby cities like Wollongong, Newcastle and the Blue Mountains. Trams and ferries also service the CBD and certain outer suburbs. Expand the sections below for coverage maps.
Paying for transport: The Opal card is Sydney's electronic transport ticket. It can be purchased from train stations as well as select convenience stores and 7-Elevens and is free to obtain with a minimum load amount. The Opal card allows you to ride all forms of public transport (trains, buses, trams and ferries) by pre-loading it with funds. Individual tickets can still be purchased, however, these are priced higher than what you will be charged for using an Opal card. Certain services will not issue on-the-spot paper tickets during peak periods, so the Opal card is a good investment to avoid this potential hassle. You can find more information about the Opal card here.
Yes. Uber is widely available throughout Sydney. Your Uber options include uberX, uberXL, uberASSIST, UberSELECT, uberTAXI, UberBLACK, UberLUX and UberSUV. Sydney also has ride share service from Ola, Taxify and GoCatch.
With coastal bushwalks and harbour beaches, hatted restaurants and hidden bars, funky shops and creative street art, Sydney's got something for everyone. We've highlighted some of our top things to do in Sydney. Luckily, most of the city's main bucket-list attractions are easy to get to on foot from the CBD or are a bus/ferry/train ride away.
If you have more than a couple days in the city (or are a real vinophile or nature lover), consider a day trip out to the picturesque Blue Mountains, which sits about two hours by train west of Sydney's CBD, or venture up to the Hunter Valley, about two hours' drive northwest, for a day of wine tasting.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
