EASE OF ACCESS
Spoilt for choice
Sydney is Australia’s most accessible city. Whether travelling in from inter-state or overseas, once you’ve landed at Sydney Airport, the city centre is only 8km (5 miles) away via your choice of taxi, train, airport shuttle bus, or private transfer, whichever you prefer. But the vast array of choices doesn’t stop there – there’s a range of accommodation, from the city to the coast and hinterlands to choose from. You’ll feel at home the minute you arrive.
For our international guests, like many countries around the world, Australia also has requirements for entry visas.
A venue to meet
Sydney is a spirited and cosmopolitan city: where every neighbourhood has its own distinct energy and character, and you’ll find a range of outstanding venues to connect people in the heart of the city.
A place to sleep
From internationally–renowned, five-star luxury suites and spacious apartments, to boutique and budget hotels, Sydney has more than 42,000 rooms to suit every style and budget. And most are within easy walking distance or a short taxi ride to major attractions and venues.
