How Do You Get Around Sydney?
There are many different ways to get around Sydney.
Do you need a car in Sydney? And are you wondering where can I stay in Sydney without a car?
The answer is, yo totally do not need a car when staying in Sydney. Unless you want to do a lot of different day trips on your own into the Blue Mountains and Hunter Valley for example.
Also, keep in mind that parking in the Sydney CBD can be quite costly as you will have to pay extra at your accommodation for a parking spot or at a nearby parking garage.
However, there are many tour companies who can arrange these day tours which make for a more hassle-free stay.
If you are looking for getting around Sydney on the cheap, taking public transport is your best bet. Many parts of Sydney are also flat and very walkable!
So how do you get around Sydney? Here are a few ways:
- The Sydney Lightrail connects you from Central to Circular Quay with all the major stops in-between: Chinatown, Townhall, QVB, Wynyard and Grosvenor Street. The Sydney Lightrail will also take you to Bondi Junction and the Sydney Convention Centre.
- The Sydney Metro runs frequently across the city and connects the CBD with the North, South and West of the city. If you are looking at where should I stay in Sydney as a tourist, the Sydney metro will easily bring you from Sydney Central to Pitt Street (the main shopping street), Martin Place (a pedestrianised inner-city street) and Barangaroo, which is right by the waters of Sydney Harbour.
- There are many buses across the Sydney CBD, connecting the inner city to Surry Hills, Kings Cross and even Bondi Beach.
- Taking the ferry across to Manly is a highlight of any visit to Sydney. You can get to many other parts of Sydney by ferry as well, for example to the Sydney Zoo or the Watsons Bay Hotel, which is a beautiful spot to visit for a sunset over a drink.
- Of course, Sydney has Uber and other taxi services which you can use on-demand to get around.
