Sydney Area Map
The best way to get around Sydney is by CityRail — specifically the City Circle line, which stops at a number of the city's best things to do. Although the bus system has routes that crisscross the city, any traveling done on four wheels is at the mercy of Sydney traffic. We recommend rental cars for driving to and from the city, but not inside its boundaries, since traffic is heavy and Aussies drive on the other side of the road, which can be confusing to American visitors. Walking is, of course, a wonderful way to explore any city, but Sydney is much too large to be done on foot alone. And a trip on a ferry is a must-do for the views alone.
To get from Sydney International Airport (SYD), you can take a fairly cheap taxi ride, or you can hop on the Airport Link Train, which take you the about 11 miles into the city. You can also rent a car from the airport.Getting To & Around Sydney»
