Sydney Central Station

You are here Home  > New South Wales  > Sydney >  Sydney Central Station

Central Station is Sydney’s hub for train travel with long-distance services departing upstairs (with coaches and trams stopping downstairs on Eddy Avenue). The station has all the facilities that you would expect including bars, shops, fast food outlets and lockers.

NSW TrainLink and CityRail both offer intercity train services although CityRail’s network extends only as far south as Goulburn and Nowra, west to the Blue Mountains and north to Newcastle and Scone. NSW TrainLink goes further afield within New South Wales and also runs a few interstate services (to Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne). The Indian Pacific to Perth (via Broken Hill and Adelaide) is a really long-distance train journey that is run by Great Southern Railway.

    Earphones are recommended to drown out winging old people complaining how dirty trains are. Its Public transport live with it

    This is one of the most unfriendly spot in Sydney. I was assaulted 2.5 years ago, leaving my upper lip broken. Police couldn't do anything about it. My female friend was attacked on the same platform

    South Coast passengers - double check the platform you're departing from. P25 is a *long* way away from P4.
