City Circle, Sydney

Sydney's underground railway, commonly referred to as the City Circle, provides an easy and inexpensive way of skirting around the main city area. Because many of Sydney's main tourist destinations and attractions are situated in this vicinity, the Circle represents the ideal way of getting around.

You can get to Darling Harbour, a former dockside harbour that has been transformed into a major tourist spot, Circular Quay, the hub of ferry transport on Sydney Harbour, and The Rocks, the founding point for settlement in Australia and now a vibrant tourist region. There are six stations that form the main City Circle underground railway. They are (running clockwise): Central Railway Station, Townhall, Wynyard, Circular Quay, St James and Museum.

Eastern Suburbs Extension

Just over a decade ago, a new rail link was built linking the CBD to Kings Cross and Sydney's eastern suburbs and creating a new underground railway station, Martin Plaza, in the heart of the CBD's financial district. The link terminates at Bondi Junction, which is several kilometres short of Bondi Beach.
