Directions, Transport and Travel To and From Sydney University
(Sydney, New South Wales, Australia)

Renting a car is a popular way to tour the Sydney city centre and its outlying areas. Car hire outlets are conveniently located in the Kingsford Smith arrivals terminal. For more convenience, visitors can book for a car hire service over the phone. Traffic flow around the city can be slow during peak commuting times. Visitors are discouraged from traveling the streets from 7 A.M. to 9 A.M. and 4 P.M. to 6 P.M.

Travel by Air

Foreign visitors going to Sidney land at the Kingsford Smith International Airport. Once there, they can use the city's extensive public transport system to get around.

Car Hire and Road Transport

Hiring a car in Sydney is very feasible and often necessary. The city is quite spreadout due to the unique geography presented by the enormous harbour. The road network is excellent, parking isn't too bad, but drivers are quite aggressive. You'll find that taxi drivers in Sydney often have a poor knowledge of streets, so you better off getting about under your own steam if you residence is beyond the good transport network. Hiring a car online is the best value solution.

Car Parking

Car parks around the city are widely available, and they are usually located near shopping malls and other places of interest. There are large pay-parking areas near the Sydney Opera House and Bondi Beach. The parking spaces inside the university is limited, which is why students, staff, and visitors are required to get perking permits . Those who do not have permits can still park inside the university by getting a ticket from the many Pay and Display facilities around the campus. The tickets should be displayed visibly on the dashboard.

Travel by Trains and Rail

Visitors who want to travel beyond the city limits can take the CityRail, a train service that regularly travels between the Sydney city centre and the suburbs from 5 A.M. until midnight. Visitors can enjoy riding Sydney's world-renowned monorail because it is a tourist attraction in itself. It travels between the city centre and the Darling Harbour from 7 A.M. to 10 P.M.

Travel by Buses and Coachl

Riding the bus is a great way to get around the city. Buses are widely available. Bus stops are scattered throughout the city centre, often right outside popular attractions. Tickets are often discounted in the evenings. Visitors can also travel to the outlying areas by bus. Some bus lines travel as far as 48 km / 30 miles past the city limits.

Travel by Taxi

Taxis can be hired by phone or hailed right off the street. Taxis waiting for passengers are commonly parked outside CityRail stations and the Kingsford Smith Airport.
