      The travel pass info on this site seems to be dated. We will be in Sydney five nights and will likely use ferries, buses, and trains to sight see. It is unlikely that we will venture out beyond the city. What is the most economical transport pass for our length of stay. We will be arriving and departing by air. Thanks.

      Public transport Panthers Penrith

      Sydney Oct 23, 2014 at 7:48 AM

      Hi Sydneysiders, i am considering flying to Sydney for a papercraft fair to be held at the above venue. I have studied the public transport webste and see trains to Penrith but it seems to be another 3.5 km to the clubhouse. Is there anything that will get me closer on a sunday? I would be fine with a taxi from Penrith station if necessary but would there be a taxi stand there? I would be flying in on that sunday morning and gather I have to catch the train to Central and then head off to Penrith.

      I will only have a small backpack so luggage won,t be a problem.

    • Discovery Pass - Unlimited travel in NSW (Sydney to Gold Cost)

      Sydney Oct 22, 2014 at 8:48 AM

      Hello,
      I would be very grateful if anybody can advice me what is the best way for traveling in Sydney and around for about two - three weeks and then going to travel to Queensland. If it is better for me to purchase a discovery pass (but i have read that need to make a reservation of the seats in advance). There is a big advantage - hop on and hop off.
      Or shall I just buy a multipass for two weeks in Sydney to do some sightseeing and then purchase a ticket to Brisbane.

      Thanks for your suggestion :-)

      I am staying at the Hotel next to Sydney Central Station on the 12th( after disembarking the Queen Mary Cruise ship) and 16th March 2105 (when I return to Hong Kong) and plan to viisit Blue Mountains area( 13-15th)
      My route plan..(Friday)13th to 15th march 2015..)....Sydney: Mt Tomah (Botanical Gardens : Mt Wilson: Lithgow: Govetts Lookout; Katoomba( all attractions): Penrith( Riverboat cruise); Wilberforce( pioneer Village); Sydney
      From my research I beleive my best options are:-
      (a) ...rent a car in Sydney Willaim Street on the Friday morning( drive M1 & M2) and drive back to Sydney Sunday afternoon
      (b)....train from Sydney Central Station to Windsor station,rent a car there , drive the same route and return the car at 1200 on the 15th (they close then), have lunch in the RSL Windsor Club then get the train back to Sydney.
      .I am staying at the Hotel next to Central Station on the 12th and 16th (when I return to Hong Kong)
      If I take the train, on the Sunday morning I can only spend about one & half hours at the Australian Pioneer village, but don't have to worry about the traffic to & from Sydney.
      I am tending towards the train option after reading all of the traffic comments....but it is difficult to comprehend the traffic situation on out from Sydney on the Friday morning and return Sunday mid day/afternoon.
      Thanks for any comments /suggestions

      Yes, you heard it! Australia will be hosting the first ever Big VT Cruise! We want Carnival Cruises to be overrun by VT'ers and VA's!! lol. We hope that by the end of the cruise, we'll have everyone on the ship signed up to VT haha :o)

      Back to the Big Sydney Meet..... you just cannot showcase Sydney in a few days, but we will give it a try. The following trips planned - Manly, Taronga Zoo, The Blue Mountains, a picnic in the Botanical Gardens and a sensational Showboat dinner and dance cabaret harbour cruise!

      So what are you waiting for? Sign up below and then save those pennies!! :o)

      This is my 6th time to Australia and the last time, I visited a tall building that had a large area on top that was similar to a theatre. The program takes you so that you feel like you are flying over Australia. I think they may also do that walk up high where you walk on glass and can look down below. Can anyone tell me what building that is and where it is located? Doesn't Sydney have a Hop On Hop Off bus? Thanks for the info.

      Which bank and which SIM card do I choose?

      Sydney Aug 13, 2014 at 5:40 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I'll be moving to Sydney from Croatia in two weeks to stay for at least 6 months or a year, with the possibility of moving there indefinitely. I would really appreciate if someone could suggest a bank where it would be best to open an account and the best SIM card option for me.

      I will be going to school in Sydney, but also working part/full time in the Education area, so I need an account for regular salary payments, regular cash withdrawals and the possibility of online paying (via PayPal). As for the SIM card - I'd like to get a plan with a lot of data allowance, as I use all the apps for communication via internet (like WhatsApp, Viber and Skype) to stay in touch with people and am not a big texter and caller. Also, as I will be residing in Sydney mostly, I'd need a good coverage there. So if there are any tips and tricks, I'd be very grateful. :)

      Thanks.
